“I would like to congratulate Tony on receiving such recognition from his peers, and in receiving this award,” said Greater Sudbury Mayor Brian Bigger. “The Municipal Engineers Association is an organization that certainly recognizes all that is being accomplished in the City of Greater Sudbury”

He joined the City of Greater Sudbury in August 2012 as the General Manager of Growth and Infrastructure.
Outside of work, Cecutti is a strong promoter and supporter of the engineering profession. He helped found and run the local Professional Engineer Chapter (PEO), culminating as the Chair. He has organized numerous events to promote the PEO and spearheaded initiatives to support local charities and spread awareness of professional engineers.
