Phoenix, Ariz. – hardison/downey construction inc. recently promoted Heather Marin to Vice President of Operations.
“Heather has played a big role in our rapid growth over the past year,” said hardison/downey President Justin Newman. “She easily connects with others to build team camaraderie and repeat work, and she’s eager to open new doors and opportunities.”
Heather joined the hardison/downey team in 2015, focusing on legacy clients and expanding the company’s portfolio. She oversaw the successful completion of 14 vertical structures across the expanse of a private golf development in North Scottsdale and has been instrumental in the establishment of a self-perform civil group for h/d. Prior to her promotion to Vice President, Marin was a Project Director.
Since last year, h/d has significantly grown its workforce, which now numbers more than 100. The company posted its best year in its 33-year history in 2018 and is on track to exceed last year’s revenues.
When she came to h/d, Heather returned to her roots, so to speak. She began her career in the Kitchell family of companies at Kitchell Custom Homes, where she worked on notable projects such as the Valley Ho condos and The Mountain Project. She then successfully ran her own renovation company for a few years and came back to the commercial contracting business to satisfy her desire for larger, more complex projects.
Heather graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Construction Management. She has been recognized by Arizona Woman’s “Who’s Who” in Business and graduated from the ABA’s Leadership Development Forum.
Heather resides in the West Valley with her husband and two daughters.
hardison/downey was founded in 1985 as an alternative for clients who seek the expertise and financial stability of a large general contractor with the personal service and attention of a small one. The company’s work is primarily in new and interior commercial construction, multifamily, senior living and student housing facilities. h/d became one of Kitchell’s five operating companies in 2010.
