McDonald Building Company promotes three new members to its Senior Leadership Team

By McDonald Building Company

McDonald Building Company (MBC), a full-service construction management firm from Norristown, PA, is pleased to announce the promotion of three team members to its Senior Leadership Team. Tom McDonald has been elevated to Senior VP of Operations, Brad Springer has been named VP of Preconstruction, and Laura Clevenger has been named VP of Marketing & Administration. Paul McDonald will continue to serve as President.

Tom McDonald, Senior VP of Operations, joined McDonald Building Company in early 2018 and quickly demonstrated to be a valuable asset in a short amount of time. Tom’s depth of experience in high-rise construction and major healthcare projects combined with his personal commitment to the region’s building community will benefit clients and team members with solid leadership for years to come. His 30+ year professional career includes a portfolio of projects exceeding $1.5 billion in major construction volume. Tom oversees the Project Management & Field Staff and plays a key role in operations and strategic planning for the company. Tom is a graduate of Philadelphia University and holds a LEED AP BD+C Accreditation.

Brad Springer, VP of Preconstruction has been with MBC since 2011, and will continue to be a critical force as he leads the firm’s Preconstruction Department. Brad is substantially involved in every MBC project during the planning stages including estimating, logistics, contract negotiations, and subcontractor procurement. Brad enjoys volunteering for the Community Design Collaborative and is a 2000 graduate of Drexel University.

Laura Clevenger, VP of Marketing & Administration, has been with MBC since its inaugural year having worked previously in the AEC industry for the last 15 years. Laura is primarily responsible for leading and preparing all marketing & business development efforts to support the MBC brand. Laura is actively pursuing her CPSM certification and is unfortunately (but we still love her!) a 2003 graduate of Ohio State University.

“Tom, Brad, and Laura have been instrumental in making certain our projects are delivered on time and as expected,” says President, Paul McDonald. “The foundation of this team will ensure we continue this practice and sustain our high standards of service to our clients and business for the future. As we approach our 10-year anniversary, this Senior Leadership Team has a long-term vision for sustained growth and I am grateful for their dedication to MBC. Congratulations to Tom, Brad, and Laura on your promotions and best wishes for continued success at MBC.”
