Richard A. Yeager – University of Massachusetts-Amherst

There’s got to be some more “there-there.” Richard A. Yeager laments the phrase, but concedes its wisdom. Especially in his role of the past year as director for campus planning at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. While he’s quick to acknowledge the more than $1.5 billion of capital improvements and new buildings over the past 15 […]

Iga Wyrzykowski – XpresSpa

To Iga Wyrzykowski, there’s a certain awe that strikes her when she walks through an airport, past one of the XpresSpa stores she’s helped create. “I walk by and think to myself, ‘Wow I designed that!,’” XpresSpa’s director of store design and construction says. “The transformation is amazing. It’s incredible to think that I designed […]

Joel Koffron – TRC Companies Inc.

The best advice Joel Koffron’s father Arthur gave him about the construction field was to develop technical solutions that had “both a belt and suspenders” so your “pants” won’t fall down and expose your “weaknesses.” Koffron, now the construction manager at Lowell, Massachusetts-based TRC Companies Inc. never forgot the guidance passed down from father to […]

Johnny Little – Tough Mudder Inc.

It’s tough to make mud in the desert, as Johnny Little discovered. Such was the case when Little, vice president of live events and global licensing for Tough Mudder Inc. came to Oman to debut the patented obstacle course race that takes place—as the name suggests—in the mud. Except mud is tough to make from […]

Georgia Diacumakos-Kyrifides – Rutgers University

As the campuses of Rutgers University grow and expand throughout New Jersey, school officials hope the locals take notice. It’s certainly hard to miss the new RWJ Barnabas Health Athletic Performance Center, a $108 million complex located at the heart of the school’s Piscataway, New Jersey campus. Encompassing 125,000 square feet, the four-story facility combines […]

Paul Kausch — Kaplan Cos.

In its day, the Helme Snuff Mill was nothing to sneeze at. Built in 1883 in the ubiquitous brick factory complex style of the era, it produced enough smokeless, snortable tobacco and chaw to employ a town that became known as Helmetta, New Jersey. When the mill, about 50 miles south of New York City, […]

Michael Dorsch – DXI Construction

A fixture in the mid-Atlantic building industry for over two decades, Michael Dorsch thought he understood the capabilities of DXI Construction long before coming aboard as director of business development in October 2018. Though in the time that’s passed since his hiring, Dorsch may wonder if he’d underestimated just how seriously his new employer takes […]

Stephanie K. Flood – iboss

In late 2016, three years after joining a Boston-based firm as a senior project manager and consultant, Stephanie Flood was given her most challenging assignment to date: to coordinate the relocation of iboss, a dynamic and fast-growing cloud security company—and one of the firm’s most important clients. Eight months later, just as a new global […]

Wes Pooler – Southern Maine Health Care

Like many states, Maine has seen a spike in demand for behavioral health resources over the past decade. The problem is especially pronounced in rural and low-income areas, where extenuating factors—such as the state’s growing opioid crisis—are pushing these services to the brink. It’s an issue Wes Pooler knows all too well. During his tenure […]

George Giannouloudis – Roche Bros. Supermarkets

Visit Roche Bros. new Brothers Marketplace in seaside Duxbury, Massachusetts, and you can’t help but pick up on the decidedly maritime flair—the market’s exterior is covered with weathered shingles to mimic the local housing style and its interior is accented with buoys and lobster traps. The counters are lined with oysters and oyster products, the […]
