Swinerton Announces Executive Promotions in Atlanta

ATLANTA, GA — Swinerton, a general contractor with nationwide offices, announces the promotions of four executives in 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 experience incumbent with the leadership team and support the office's projected 2023 revenue of over $150 million, a 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," said 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."

Schoening, previously a Senior Project Manager, is promoted to Project Executive. Originally hired in 2011 as an intern, Schoening advanced through various positions including Project Engineer, Assistant Superintendent, and Project Manager. Schoening has a passion for the built environment and aims to learn from others including trades people on the construction site and various mentors within Swinerton and the industry. As Project Executive, Schoening is tasked with growing the division's market share and overseeing Atlanta's project teams. Schoening is also tasked with leading operational activities within the division and managing a team of administrative professionals.

"I'm excited for the opportunity to work across our project teams to support our industry-leading people and culture," Schoening said. "My goal is to build high-performing teams and cultivate long-term, trusted client relationships."

Vermillion was promoted from Senior Project Manager to Preconstruction Executive. She is an industry veteran with 13 years of experience, more than half of which has been with Swinerton. Vermillion has experience in preconstruction planning, subcontractor negotiation, and project closeout and aims to ensure quality and a safe environment in compliance with the construction schedule. 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 figures.

Leading the Atlanta aviation team, Einem's responsibilities include risk management, cost and budget management, customer service, safety, quality control, and scheduling.

Promoted to Senior Project Manager, Tessier relocated from Swinerton's Santa Ana, California, office. With nearly 20 years of experience, Tessier oversees project planning, contract development and negotiation, financial management, quality control, and safety for construction projects.
