Cranshaw is pleased to announce several organizational changes taking place in the next few months. Bob Lyons, Cranshaw’s President, will be retiring in early 2019. For several years, Bob has been helping to plan for the succession of leadership within Cranshaw which will soon transition to a team of four Cranshaw senior leaders:
- Andrew Bisbee is now Senior Vice President and Director of Estimating and Technology. Andrew joined Cranshaw in 1994 and has been responsible for pre-construction services and estimating from conceptual level through GMP/contract estimates on major projects such as Ink Block, Green District and East Pier. He also has managed Cranshaw’s pre-construction and software selection and implementation.
- Tom Burke, Senior Vice President and Project Executive, started at Cranshaw in 2001. He has worked on many major projects including Ink Block, The Circle, Newton-Wellesley Hospital Surgical Center, Winchester Hospital MRI Center, Woodland Station and Hanover Park at Fitton Field.
- Jeff Fishbone, Senior Vice President and Project Executive, joined Cranshaw in 2005 and has led the construction of major projects including many of the buildings at Assembly Row in Somerville, The District Burlington, and the Arsenal Yards mixed-use development in Watertown.
- Chris Iannelli, Senior Vice President and Project Executive, joined the company in 2000. Chris has provided overall team leadership in pre-construction, planning, logistics and project management of some of the Cranshaw’s largest and most complex projects including Seven Springs Burlington, Dunkin’ Donuts Northeast Distribution Center, Waterstone at Wellesley, MarketStreet Lynnfield, University Station and Boston East.
Together, Andrew, Tom, Jeff and Chris will form Cranshaw’s Executive Committee working with Bob over the coming months on leadership transition and assuming overall day-to-day management of construction operations. Jack O’Neil will continue in his role as chairman of Cranshaw Construction. An additional exciting organizational change is that Tony Salvucci has moved from Cranshaw to National Development’s development group. In his new role, Tony will be responsible for working with development project managers on all aspects of project construction with particular focus on early stage concepts, due diligence, budgeting and guiding project design. Congratulations to the new leadership team. We are excited about what the future holds for Cranshaw and appreciate all our valued clients, partners and team members.
