Thanks to a lead from a previous candidate that Nenni & Associates worked with, the Sean Bayless and Ryan McGushin team recently partnered with a Mechanical Contracting company to identify a Vice President of Construction for the company.
The Mechanical Contracting company, which includes a regional grouping of HVAC, mechanical, and plumbing businesses, helps facilities lower operating costs and create comfortable, clean, healthy environments. They sought a candidate who could position the firm to win projects larger general contractors. It was essential that the candidate be seasoned in the industry and familiar with the Chicagoland construction market.
The Nenni team pulled three top-tier candidates from the Design/Build Contracting industry, using the criteria of a strong knowledge of the Chicago construction landscape and an understanding of the challenges ahead for a company that had recently changed from a family-owned business to private equity.
Of the three candidates, one finalist was chosen due to their deep knowledge of the industry and proximity to the office. The client was impressed by the candidate’s confidence in believing the new firm could be positioned to win large mechanical construction projects and was compelled to make the candidate an offer for the VP of Construction with the company.
The candidate accepted, feeling the company is on a growth trajectory, and has proven that with their private equity involvement.
Ryan McGushin has been with Nenni and Associates since February 2013. As an Account Executive, Team Lead, he focuses on talent acquisition, business development, and networking primarily in that area.
