DENVER, CO (Feb. 3, 2014) – PCL Construction officially welcomes Shaun Yancey to the role of president and chief operating officer, US Operations. Yancey takes over responsibility for PCL’s US operations from Peter Beaupré, who recently retired from the position.
“Shaun has been with PCL for over three decades and brings with him a wealth of industry knowledge and construction expertise,” said Paul Douglas, PCL president and CEO. “His leadership has been instrumental in growing and guiding our US operations during challenging times for our industry.”
Yancey joined PCL in 1982 as a project engineer and has held numerous roles in project, operations, and executive management. He has worked on several notable projects, including the Denver International Airport Terminal, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and the Ritz Carlton in Aspen. A graduate of Colorado State University, Yancey has led PCL’s Human Resources, Professional Development, and Corporate Development departments. He directed the development of leading-edge innovations in virtual construction technologies and sustainability, two areas of growing importance.
“It is humbling to follow in the footsteps of Peter Beaupré, an outstanding leader whose guidance helped establish PCL as an industry leader in the US,” said Yancey. “Thanks to Peter, our team is well-positioned to build on this legacy and continue to provide exceptional value to our clients.”
In related organizational changes, Luis Ventoza has been named chief operating officer, Civil Infrastructure, responsible for the performance of the Civil Infrastructure sector across all of PCL’s operations. Ventoza began his career with PCL in 1987 as a project engineer in Phoenix and has demonstrated exceptional leadership in PCL’s Buildings and Water Infrastructure operations.
In addition, Deron Brown has been appointed vice president, US Buildings, and assumes responsibility for all US Buildings districts: Seattle, Minneapolis, California, Orlando, Denver, and Hawaii. Brown, who joined PCL in 1996 as a project engineer, also oversees PCL’s US corporate development department and US national business development initiative.
These moves are part of a larger evolution of senior executive management at PCL. The Office of the CEO has been created to better manage the growing contracting organization, whose revenue has increased by almost $5 billion in the past decade. Additional information on PCL’s restructuring of leadership can be found in a release issued February 3, 2014.
