Shawmut Design and Construction Promotes Geisler and Tobin to Directors
BOSTON, MA Shawmut Design and Construction announces the promotion of two project executives to directors of its rapidly expanding hotels and sports venues divisions. John Tobin, Director of Hotels, and Eric Geisler, Director of Sports Venues, will continue to build on their respective divisions' exponential growth and bolster market expansion plans.
"At Shawmut, we value strong leaders and promote from within whenever possible," said Randy Shelly, Vice President of Shawmut Design and Construction. "Both our hotels and sports venues divisions are in the midst of unprecedented growth and we are excited to watch John and Eric take them to the next level."
As Director of Hotels, Tobin will grow Shawmut's market share of the hotel industry while continuing to deliver the top-notch client service the firm is known for. A key member of the team since joining in 2008, Tobin has cultivated and maintained relationships with some of the firm's most prestigious clients, including Le Bernardin and The New York Palace. Shawmut is currently engaged in work on Nobu Ryokan in Malibu, The Maritime Hotel in New York, and the InterContinental New York Barclay Hotel, the single largest project in the firm's history at $175 million.
Tobin's promotion comes on the heels of the hotels division's 246 percent growth over the past three years, and a projected overall 1,000 percent growth by the end of 2015. As they grow, the team will continue to focus on highly complex luxury hotel renovation projects drawing on extensive experience within occupied environments in tight urban areas.
Geisler's promotion to Director of Sports Venues is a result of his exceptional leadership, especially on projects for Santa Anita Park and all 30 Major League Baseball parks. As Director, he will continue to maintain relationships with existing clients and foster new ones. Recent work includes left field renovations to Petco Park in San Diego, California, extensive renovations to Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, for Levy Restaurants, site improvements to Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York, multi-year renovations to TD Garden in Boston, and significant renovations to Santa Anita Park just outside of Los Angeles, California.
The sports venues division, launched in 2011, has experienced 230 percent growth over the past three years, with $100 million in revenue projected for 2015. Under Geisler's leadership, Shawmut will target luxury suite and VIP spaces, food and beverage improvements, team stores, technology and infrastructure upgrades, and base building renovations.
