Sordoni Construction Co. has announced a promotion for one of its longtime construction executives.
The Bedminster-based firm said recently that it has elevated Bradley Smith to senior vice president from managing executive. He has more than 20 years in the construction industry, overseeing preconstruction, design management, project management, procurement, scheduling, reporting, budget and change control and business development.
“Brad Smith is one of the cornerstones of Sordoni Construction,” said Matthew Lorenzo, Sordoni’s CEO and president. “His construction acumen and business integrity have helped us become the company we are today. After almost 20 years of working with Brad I am certain he will be overwhelmingly successful in this new role.”
In a news release, the firm said Smith has held multiple management roles, which also include project engineer to project director. His focus over time has shifted from running individual projects to overseeing multiple projects and clients at Sordoni.
Smith’s project experience includes certification under the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design scale, along with laboratories, corporate office space, retail, entertainment, residential and site infrastructure improvements, firm said.
“Over the last 14 years I have worked with Brad Smith navigating many challenges on the project level,” said Seth Levy, Sordoni’s chief operating officer and executive vice president. “Brad’s leadership and ability to navigate the construction flow of a project makes him a natural fit for this position. I look forward to the continuing success and running the operations of the company with him.”
Smith, who holds a bachelor’s in civil engineering and an MBA from Rutgers University, has managed more than $1 billion worth of projects.
“I am excited about my new position which will allow me greater opportunity to refine our daily operations and focus on our company’s greatest attribute, our people,” Smith said. “It has been an amazing journey over the last 14 years since opening the office with Matt, Seth and Mike Healy, growing the company to what Sordoni is today. I am even more excited about what Sordoni will deliver in the future.”
