BOSTON, MA BOND, the Northeast's premier full-service construction management and general contracting company, announces the promotions of two key members of the firm's Civil and Utility Division as well as the promotion of Senior Project Manager Mike Spodek to the position of Project Executive.
Sean McAuliffe has been promoted to Director, Mid-Atlantic Region, while Michael Dahlheimer has been elevated to Regional Manager, Southern New England. In their new roles, McAuliffe and Dalheimer represent a critical component of BOND's long-term strategy to expand its geographical presence throughout the Northeast and provide the most responsive and reliable services to clients.
McAuliffe will be based in BOND's Kenilworth, New Jersey, office and will lead business development efforts into New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Dalheimer will manage BOND's New Haven, Connecticut, office and will manage day-to-day operations and further develop BOND's client base in the southern New England area.
McAuliffe, a 10-year veteran of BOND, is a graduate of the University of Maine. During his tenure at the firm, he has worked on the Northeast Utilities Middletown-Norwalk in Connecticut, and led the effort to open up a permanent office in Connecticut. He successfully enhanced new client development and directed the EPC meter station project in Middletown for Spectra Energy. Throughout his career, McAuliffe has fostered strong relationships with local unions and engineering companies and is credited for the growth of the New Haven office.
Dalheimer, a graduate of Wentworth Institute of Technology, has worked as a Superintendent on many projects throughout his more than decade-long career at BOND. His assignments have included work as an Assistant Superintendent on one of the division's largest projects, including the NSTAR 345 kV Transmission Project, and as a Superintendent for the Northeast Utilities Middletown-Norwalk in Connecticut. Additionally, he managed the Baileyville Meter Station project located on the Maine/Canada border for Spectra Energy and worked on a number of projects for United illuminating, Black & Veatch, and Spectra Energy.

We are thankful for their years of dedication to the company and wish them both continued success in their expanded roles at BOND."

He will lead a team of Project Managers, Engineers, and Superintendents in the preconstruction and construction phases of key projects. He is currently working on the UMass Boston Utility Corridor and Roadway project, utilizing his active campus construction and infrastructure expertise to ensure success on this multi-faceted project.
Spodek has more than 17 years of experience in the construction industry, as well as extensive experience in construction of large-scale complex research and development facilities.
