Job Details

The candidates for this position must be solid leaders, and have many years of both precon and ops experience to completely lead the project teams of PM's, supers and PE's on their assigned projects. This position is the management position reporting into the CEO of the company.

Essential Job Functions:
* Project Experience - the Construction Executive must be well seasoned in their job knowledge, project knowledge, project finances, and all aspects of project risk management. The Construction Executive must be experienced in all aspects of the project experience and team leadership.

* Project Leadership - the Construction Executive is no stranger to having run projects. The Construction Executive must be privy to many of the needs of a project leader and can relate to the challenges that confront the Project's PM and/or Superintendent. Experience leverages them to be able to move the Project Leaders to think before acting, plan before executing and prepare before delivering.

* Project Financial Master - the Construction Executive must be thoroughly knowledgeable about how the money moves throughout the life of its assigned projects. The Construction Executive must be project wise to where questionable expenses are to be accounted and understand how a job may have gone into the "red" and how to turn the job around.

* Project "Ambassador" - the Construction Executive must be the ambassador of its assigned projects. The project ambassador is the person who the Client knows who they need to call if they have a burning question, problem or idea. It is the Construction Executive that will often take the hardest complaints from a Client and will be expected to ensure that the Client's ultimate needs and expectations are met. The other side to being the "Ambassador" is that the Construction Executive is also the best representative from the Project Team to the company's executive management team. The Construction Executive's attitude, perspective and insights are invaluable to those whom they report directly to.

* Project Counselor & Coach - the Construction Executive, in the Project Ambassador role is critical to the Client, and the execution of Counselor or Coach, is the most important to the Project team. The Construction Executive must have demonstrated wisdom over the years and has demonstrated professionalism in both attitude and action.

* Project Strategist - the Construction Executive, as part of their coaching function, must instruct the Project Leaders on the importance of staying ahead of the current day. When so many Project Leaders find it easy to get down in the weeds, often missing what is about to come around the corner, it is the Construction Executive who must pull them out to balance both the short and long-term perspective. The Construction Executive must impose their will, if needed, if they view their Project Leaders getting lost in the weeds or succumbing to the whines and minor emergencies of subcontractors who are failing badly in their own efforts.
