BOSTON - Shawmut Design and Construction has named Les Hiscoe chief operating officer and executive vice president, the firm announced in early January.
Prior to his promotion, Hiscoe held the role of vice president of development of the tri-state region for Shawmut, a national construction management firm headquartered in Boston with an office in Providence.
As COO, Hiscoe will focus on developing Shawmut’s field services divisions; national business in retail, hospitality, gaming, and sports venues; tri-state business in academic and health care; sales and marketing; and human resources.
“Les’ experience and leadership have guided Shawmut through a period of growth in the tri-state region at a time when many companies are experiencing double-digit declines,” said CEO Tom Goemaat. “His ability to successfully cultivate long-lasting relationships with high-profile retail brands and elite academic institutions is unparalleled, and I look forward to working together to ensure Shawmut’s continued growth in the years to come.”
