Transitioning into the Future with Leadership and Experience

Timothy O’Shea, Director of Strategic Development – Tim joined Sordoni in May. He holds a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Delaware and an MBA from the University of Scranton. He worked in the Philadelphia office of Turner Construction for 7 years, holding the positions of Estimating Engineer, Field Engineer and Logistics Manager for various healthcare projects. Tim left Turner to join his family business as the Chief Development Officer for Hildebrandt Learning Centers, LLC. At Hildebrandt, he was responsible for developing and executing marketing and business strategies and served as the Owner’s Representative for specific construction projects related to the centers. In 2015 Hildebrandt was acquired by Bright Horizons Family Solutions and Tim worked as their Senior Director for Center Client Relations. As the Director of Strategic Development, Tim will be responsible for developing and executing strategic and tactical plans for marketing, business development, client relations, new markets and products that align with our strategic plan.

Jennifer Davis, Director of Design-Build –  Design-Build is a collaborative project delivery system that utilizes an integrated team of construction professionals, architects and engineers.  An approach built on teamwork, trust, innovation and creative problem solving enables Design-Build projects to be completed faster, more cost effectively, and with optimized quality.   As Director of Design-Build, Jen will help owners to choose the right project delivery system, develop integrated project teams of qualified professionals,  and oversee project planning and execution.    Jen has a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Pennsylvania and brings to the role a decade of experience in architectural design combined with nearly ten years of leadership at Sordoni.  Sordoni has successfully utilized Design-Build delivery for clients including Wyoming Valley Motors, Talen Energy, Gemma Power Systems, Weiler, MMI Preparatory School and the Scranton School for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Children.

David Nealon, General Superintendent  – On June 1st, Dave Nealon took over the role of General Superintendent, replacing Jim Miller who earlier this year announced his intent to retire and will remain a part of the Sordoni management team. Dave has a BS in Business Administration from King’s College and began his construction career in 1990 as a laborer for a Sordoni-affiliated company.  He officially joined Sordoni  in 1997 and spent his earlier career as Superintendent at the PPL (now Talen) nuclear plant in Berwick.  Beginning in 2005, Dave moved from primarily supervising industrial work into commercial, retail and higher education projects.  He was promoted to Senior Superintendent in 2012. Dave brings more than twenty-five years of construction experience to his new role and we are excited for him to join our management team.

 

James Miller, Director  – Jim Miller has transitioned from General Superintendent effective June 1, 2017.  Before he shifts into full retirement, Jim assumes the title of Director and continues to work as a member of Sordoni’s management team.  He lends his expertise across operational functions, including  quality control, pre-construction, self-performance and special projects.  Jim began his career at Sordoni in 1973 as a carpenter surveyor and in 2003 was promoted to General Superintendent.  He is one of three generations of the Miller family who have been employed by Sordoni, including his father, two brothers, and son.
