Nicholson Promoted to VP of Construction Operations at the Congress Companies
PEABODY, MA The Congress Companies, a full service construction management firm headquartered in Peabody, Massachusetts, announces the appointment of Peter C. Nicholson as Vice President of Construction Operations.
"Peter is a bright young professional, with construction in his DNA âˆ’ for three generations," said Congress CEO William A. Nicholson. "He is fortunate to have worked with some very talented senior Congress managers over the years, as well as consultants and professionals who have supported Congress for decades. These mentors have shown him how to become a fundamentally superb construction executive."
A graduate of Roger Williams College with a bachelor's degree in business management, Nicholson began his career at Congress in 1994 as a laborer. For more than 10 years, Nicholson served on construction sites as a carpenter, a foreman, then as an Assistant Superintendent, and Assistant Project Manager, on projects in the health care, commercial and education market sectors. In 2008, Nicholson was promoted to Project Manager and most recently served as Senior Project Manager at Congress.
In his new role as Vice President of Construction Operations, Nicholson will oversee project management on all Congress building projects. He will work closely with the Director of Pre-Construction Services, ensuring a seamless transition from pre-construction, planning and estimating to the active construction phase of company projects. Nicholson will provide leadership and direction to Congress' project management staff.
"It is also no secret that Congress is a closely held company," said Nicholson. "In that regard, this promotion is both well deserved and a prudent, strategic succession planning step, which will improve the company and enhance the service we provide to our customers. We will promote from within to fill the project management position Peter formerly held. We are fortunate to have developed several very talented young professionals in the company, who are ready to step up. This has definitely improved our team."
