Turner Construction has named a longtime construction executive as its new leader for the New Jersey region.
In a news release, the company said it has promoted Lawrence Boresen to vice president and general manager of its office in the Somerset section of Franklin. He will have overall responsibility supporting Turner’s clients across business functions including field operations, sales, estimating and procurement.
“After careful consideration, we are pleased to have Larry guide our efforts to continue to serve our clients in the New Jersey region,” said Christopher Beck, Turner’s senior vice president. “Larry’s leadership and passion for excellence make him the ideal candidate to manage our team.”
An industry veteran of 26 years, Boresen joined Turner in 1999, the news release said. He has held several key roles for Turner — including procurement manger, business development manager, construction executive and operations manager — and was integral to the successful delivery of projects such as L+M Development Partners’ restoration of the Hahne & Co. building in Newark, LG Electronics’ North American headquarters in Englewood Cliffs and the renovation of Barclays’ campus in Whippany.
Boresen holds a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Northeastern University.
He will succeed Mark Romanski, who has led the New Jersey office since 2012 and will assume a new role with Turner’s Global Development Team, the news release said. In that role, Romanski will be integral in leading efforts to grow the service offerings that the company provides its clients from a global perspective.
“Mark has been a great mentor and friend for many years,” Boresen said. “His passion and commitment to Turner and the New Jersey business unit are unmatched and we are very grateful for the leadership and contributions that Mark has provided. Going forward, I am extremely excited and fortunate to have the opportunity to build upon the strengths that he has helped establish for us in New Jersey, which enable us to consistently deliver for our clients.”
