South Carolina-based McCrory Construction Company, in its first visible move as it eyes Southeastern growth, has added two nationally respected construction executives with Upstate roots to its team, company officials have announced.
Joining McCrory on the firm’s newly expanded Senior Management Team as Executive Vice President is Donald G. Warren, former President and CEO of Suitt Construction Company in Greenville and most recently Executive Vice President/Carolinas Division of Florida-based Moss and Associates. Warren joins McCrory Executive Team members Allen B. Amsler, President & CEO; Del Rosebrock, Vice President and CFO; Dennis G. Shealy, Senior Vice President of Business Development; Gail Chapman, Vice President of Preconstruction Services; Randy Morrison, Vice President of Safety and HR; and Directors Ralph Trinter, Bill Osborne, Larry Kingery and W. Allen Bridgers.
With more than 30 years of progressive construction experience, Warren has particularly deep expertise in industrial construction in the manufacturing, food processing, pharmaceutical and bioscience arenas. A graduate of North Carolina State University with a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering, he is a founding member of the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA), a past chairman and director of DBIA, and a designated Design-Build professional.
Warren is a past director of the National Center for Construction Education and Research, involved with four “Food Plant of the Year” award-winning projects, and a two-time honoree of national Design-Build Projects of the year. Don and his wife Debbie reside in Simpsonville and are active members of First Baptist Church.
“Growing our organization regionally and nationally requires an absolute commitment to identifying and hiring the very best talent available to aggressively pursue our vision of becoming one of America’s leading construction companies,” said McCrory President and CEO Allen Amsler. “Don is a nationally respected and proven leader in industrial and manufacturing facility construction, an area that we have targeted for significant growth over the next several years. We are pleased to have him join the McCrory Management Team.”
Also joining McCrory’s leadership group as Director of Preconstruction Services is Fred Fulmer, formerly of Suitt Construction and Moss and Associates.
Fulmer has more than 35 years of experience in construction, primarily focused on estimating and preconstruction responsibilities. His broad range of experience includes successful preconstruction assignments from Florida and the Carolinas to Virginia and Texas. His experience includes work in Distribution, Manufacturing/Industrial, Food, Pharmaceutical, Hospitality, Healthcare and other arenas, and includes such delivery methods as competitive bid, negotiated design-bid-build and design-build projects.
Fulmer holds a B.S. degree in Building Construction from Clemson University, and is a member of the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA). Members of Messiah Lutheran Church, Fred and his wife Beth live in Simpsonville, South Carolina.
“Like Don, Fred brings tremendous expertise and credentials to the McCrory organization and is a dynamic and customer-focused professional,” said Dennis Shealy, Senior Vice President of Business Development for McCrory. “As we continue to lay the groundwork for sustainable growth and expansion, we are committed to identifying and hiring the best talent available, and Fred is another key in the implementation of that strategy. We welcome him to the McCrory family.”
Both Warren and Fulmer will work regionally on customer assignments for McCrory, whose clients span the Southeast and include Fuji, Pfizer, BMW, Duke Energy, Westinghouse, Shealy Electrical, Walmart, Publix Super Markets, Belk, Clemson University, University of South Carolina, Michelin North America and many others.
