Turner Construction expands Self-Perform Operations in Huntsville
HUNTSVILLE — Turner Construction Company announced Jan. 7 an expansion of its Self-Perform Operations (SPO) division in Huntsville, with four veteran employees being promoted to senior roles.
Turner’s SPO division handles a wide range of specialized construction tasks including concrete foundation and excavation work, drywall and carpentry. This increases efficiency during the pre-construction phase of projects, ensuring a high level of quality and safety while enabling greater control over project schedules from their earliest stages.
One of these veteran employees, Shannon Hines, has been promoted to national SPO director. In this role, Hines will work to maximize growth and profitability of Turner’s self-perform capabilities on a national level. Hines joined the company in 1992 and has been a senior vice president at Turner since 2011.
After previously serving as a senior project manager, Dick Conway has been promoted to project executive. Conway’s new responsibilities will include supporting project teams in the SPO group, as well as with subcontracted work. He has been with Turner for a combined period of 10 years.
Brendan McCormick will retain his current title of industrial project executive, but he will now oversee the development of Turner’s new fabrication shop, which will be operational early this year. He will also support growth in the manufacturing and industrial market as Turner invests in resources and increases its capabilities. McCormick has been with Turner since 2000.
Brandon Tucker has been promoted to self-perform manager, where he will oversee the company’s traditional SPO offerings. Tucker’s promotion comes after joining Turner in 2008 and saving as a project engineer.
“As we expand Turner’s Self-Perform Operations nationally and prepare to open our new fabrication shop in early 2019, we knew we needed the right people to fill these vital roles,” said John Gromos, vice president and general manager at Turner. “Shannon, Brendan, Dick and Brandon have each distinguished themselves during their years at Turner, and their knowledge and experience will be key to our success as we constantly improve our existing self-perform services and expand into new ones.”
