SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Swinerton announces a key leadership transition, naming Eric Foster as Chief Executive Officer and Dave Callis as President. Jeff Hoopes, Swinerton’s Chief Executive Officer since 2013, retired at the end of 2019 after 35 years with the company.

“As we look forward, I believe the time is right for transition, and the time is right for the strengths of our deep leadership team to shine,” Hoopes said. “Eric’s deep belief in our values, his calm demeanor, his business savvy, his exceptional understanding of our operations and his leadership skills make him the right leader for this job.”

Since joining Swinerton in 1982 as a Project Engineer for the San Francisco Structural division after graduating from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in civil engineering, Foster has progressed through several roles from Project Manager to Division Manager, and most recently as the company’s President and Chief Operations Officer. He serves on the Board of Swinerton Incorporated and The Swinerton Foundation.

Joining Foster at the helm of Swinerton’s executive leadership team is Callis, who will continue to drive sustainable growth through his perspective to the management of business processes, the execution of work and the development of strong and adaptable teams. Callis joined the Swinerton organization in 2001 as a Senior Project Manager for the Orange County division, where he progressed in rank, most recently serving as Senior Vice President, Region Manager for the divisions located in Southern California and the Pacific Northwest.

Executive Vice Presidents Frank Foellmer, John Capener and Don Adair complete Swinerton’s executive team.
