NEW YORK, NY — Skanska, a global construction and development firm, announces leadership shifts within its USA Building senior executive team. Kerim Evin and Anita Nelson will apply their extensive industry expertise to new Regional Executive Officer (REO) leadership roles. Skanska also announces Bryant Farland has stepped down from his role as REO to pursue a new opportunity.

“It is with mixed emotions that I share Bryant is leaving Skanska to pursue a new venture. Over 17 years, Bryant’s unwavering support and thought-provoking insights have played a key role in our success,” said Paul Hewins, President and CEO of Skanska USA Building. “We are fortunate however, to have a strong leadership bench at Skanska. Kerim [and] Anita ... will bring valuable new perspective to these roles, help build on our success to date, and guide us into the future.”

Effective immediately, Evin will assume REO responsibility for a region encompassing New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. In addition to her current role as Chief Strategy Officer, Nelson will assume REO responsibility for the Skanska Integrated Solutions (SIS) team.

Evin joined Skanska in 1996 as Senior Project Manager and has since held a series of increasingly senior roles. He has served as REO for the New England and Southeast regions for the past five years.

Nelson joined Skanska as the first Chief Strategy Officer in 2019. Assuming REO responsibility for SIS will build a greater alignment between SIS operations and Skanska's overarching USA Building strategy, business plan, and other key areas of focus.
