Nation's Leading Technical Commercial Contractor Continues to Build Great Things, Including Great Regional Management Teams in the Bay Area

With the purpose of building great things—great teams, great projects, great relationships—DPR Construction, Inc., announces the elevation of Jody Quinton and Greg Haldeman to regional managers of DPR’s Redwood City and San Jose offices, respectively. Both professionals have more than 20 years of construction experience, and each has spent approximately 10 of those years with DPR.

Quinton, who joined DPR in 1997, has never delivered a project behind schedule and has personally worked on more than 20 ground-up structures, including projects for such customers as Nortel Networks, Sun Microsystems, Carnegie Institution of Washington and VMware. In her new position as regional manager, Quinton oversees all operations of the Redwood City office and works closely with DPR’s Redwood City Regional Management Team of Gavin Keith, Mark Thompson and Steve Spence.

Since joining DPR in 1997, Haldeman has worked on a wide range of projects, ranging from small tenant improvements and Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) projects to ground-up structures for such customers as PDI/DreamWorks, Stanford Medical Center and Novo Nordisk. As regional manager, Haldeman is supported by DPR’s San Jose Regional Management Team comprised of George Hurley and Scott Greubel.

Quinton and Haldeman are both U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) accredited professionals and graduates of the University of Illinois with degrees in Civil Engineering.

“These individuals represent some of the very best that DPR has to offer and will help shape the future of our organization,” said Doug Woods, co-founder of DPR. “We are at a very exciting time in our short history as we continue to identify and cultivate our next generation of leaders and provide opportunities for people to grow.”
DPR’s Redwood City and San Jose offices join DPR’s San Francisco office to form the company’s Bay Area region, which last year generated nearly 50 percent of DPR’s national $1.58 billion revenue. The region also has scored some of the highest employee satisfaction scores over the last several years with a 97 percent average job satisfaction rating on annual employee satisfaction surveys.
