Turner Construction Co. has promoted two longtime team members in New Jersey to vice president.
The construction services firm announced recently that it has elevated Steve Annese to vice president and construction executive. Meantime, it promoted Dexter Hendricks to vice president of community and citizenship
for New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Annese joined Turner’s office in New Jersey in 1997 as a project manager in its special projects division, a role he held until 2003, when he moved from special projects to the main division, according to a news release. He was promoted to senior project manager in 2005 and project executive in 2006.
Turner, which keeps its New Jersey office in the Somerset section of Franklin, said Annese most recently was a construction executive prior to his latest promotion.
“Steve’s leadership and expertise have been essential in delivering a high level of service to our clients in the health care, commercial and higher education sectors,” said Mark Romanski, vice president and general manager with Turner.
Hendricks joined Turner’s office in New Jersey in 2001 as a field engineer, also serving as a superintendent until 2008, when he was promoted to director of community affairs, the news release said. In 2017, he expanded his responsibility and was named regional director of community and citizenship.
“Dexter has served as a catalyst in Turner’s efforts to give back to the communities in which we operate,” Romanski said.
