SWINERTON ANNOUNCES EXECUTIVE PROMOTIONS IN ATLANTA
New positions to support continued expansion throughout the Southeast.
Swinerton, an industry-leading general contractor with nationwide offices, announces the promotions of four executives within its Atlanta office. These include Parker Schoening, Project Executive; Roya Vermillion, Preconstruction Executive; Eddy Einem, Senior Project Manager and Division Aviation Market Leader; and Brandon Tessier, Senior Project Manager. These personnel changes highlight the extensive experience present in the leadership team and support the office’s projected 2023 revenue of over $150 million, a remarkable 130% increase year-over-year.
“Since establishing a presence in the Southeast five years ago, Swinerton has grown exponentially and is repeatedly selected as a partner of choice for corporate interiors, aviation projects, multifamily communities, and other commercial builds,” says Derek Mosiman, Vice President and Division Manager, Swinerton’s Atlanta Division. “As our business has grown, so has our Atlanta leadership. These executives consistently show up with the commitment to excellence and innovation for which Swinerton is recognized.”
Parker Schoening, previously a Senior Project Manager, has transitioned to Project Executive. Originally hired in 2011 as an intern, Schoening advanced through various positions such as Project Engineer, Assistant Superintendent, and Project Manager. Schoening is known for his passion for the built environment and dedication to learning from others, from the tradespeople on the construction site to various mentors.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to work across our project teams to support our industry-leading people and culture,” says Schoening. “My goal is to build high-performing teams and cultivate long-term, trusted client relationships.” As Project Executive, Schoening is tasked with growing the division’s market share and overseeing Atlanta’s project teams.
Roya Vermillion was promoted from Senior Project Manager to Preconstruction Executive. Vermillion is an industry veteran with 13 years of experience, more than half of which has been with Swinerton. She excels in preconstruction planning, subcontractor negotiation, and project closeout, ensuring superior quality, a safe environment, and schedule compliance. As Preconstruction Executive, she facilitates the preconstruction process, which encompasses cost estimates, trade bidding and management, bid preparation and submission, and the compilation of Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) figures.
With a construction career spanning 24 years, Eddy Einem transferred to Atlanta from Swinerton’s office in Los Angeles, where he held the position of Senior Project Manager. He retains his title in Atlanta while becoming the division’s aviation market leader, overseeing Swinerton’s expanded construction opportunities at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Leading the aviation team in Atlanta, Einem responsibilities include risk management, cost and budget management, customer service, safety, quality control, and scheduling. Throughout the construction and aviation industries, he is known for his organizational skills and attention to detail, as well as his trustworthiness and communication.
Brandon Tessier, who transitioned from Project Manager to Senior Project Manager, relocated from Swinerton’s Santa Ana, CA office. With nearly twenty years of experience, Tessier manages project planning, contract development and negotiation, financial management, quality control, and safety. He is also dedicated to the professional development of his team members. His technical knowledge and affinity for organizing and multitasking have equipped him to succeed as a manager.
Since expanding to the Southeast in 2018, Swinerton’s Atlanta Division has emerged as a prominent, sought-after construction resource for some of the city’s notable projects and clients. Notable projects include collaborations with Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Delta Air Lines, 3M, TPA Group, SAFStor, Atlantic Residential, Prestwick Development, and others.
