Expanding mid-Atlantic region welcomes new regional manager, opens Baltimore office
“Enjoy what you do; we work too hard to not have fun” is Greg Haldeman’s personal philosophy. Haldeman, who started with DPR in 1997, recently relocated from Raleigh-Durham, NC, to DPR’s Washington, DC office to serve as regional manager of the company’s growing mid-Atlantic region.
The region, which includes DPR’s newly opened Baltimore, MD, location along with Richmond, VA and Washington, DC offices, is comprised of nearly 200 employees. With an annual revenue of approximately $300 million, DPR’s mid-Atlantic region serves customers up and down the East Coast from New Jersey and Pennsylvania to Virginia.
According to Haldeman, he is really enjoying getting to know new people and projects. His focus over the next year will be on recruiting and developing key personnel and working closely with the current Regional Management Team (RMT) to set strategic direction and oversee operations for the region.
DPR opened its first East Coast office in Richmond, VA, in 1996 (six years after the company was founded) to complete a large-scale semiconductor manufacturing facility for a repeat customer. Three years later, DPR established its Washington, DC office and has continued to expand its presence throughout the region, serving such customers as Digital Realty, Equinix, Kaiser Permanente, the University of Virginia (UVA) and Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).
At the same time DPR was growing its East Coast presence, Haldeman joined DPR in 1997 as a project manager. Throughout his career at DPR, he has served in a variety of key roles from estimator to project executive to regional manager. He recalls his first DPR project, which was a 3,000-sq.-ft. tenant improvement: “It was fun and exciting time not only because of the great team, but because I was part of figuring out our culture. It was a fantastic learning process to help realize who we are as an organization.”
Growing up, Haldeman worked in lumber and saw mills. With a love of building borne from summers spent with his dad, Haldeman is a wood worker in his limited free time. His woodwork has resulted in creating custom furniture, such as beds and coffee tables.
