Peter Bernhardt to take on role of board chairman
PC Construction is promoting Kevin McCarthy to president and CEO, effective April 1, 2013 when Peter Bernhardt steps away from the day-to-day leadership of the company.
McCarthy, who joined PC Construction in 1998 and currently serves as executive vice president, will become a member of the employee-owned company’s board of directors and a trustee of the employee stock ownership plan.
“This is truly an exciting time as we prepare for the third generation of PC Construction leadership to step up and carry the company forward,” said Peter Bernhardt, president of PC Construction.
Kevin McCarthy joined PC Construction as vice president with more than 17 years of estimating, project management and executive oversight experience in the construction industry. Throughout his time with PC Construction, he has provided leadership for various areas of the company’s construction operations in addition to estimating, strategic planning, and managing safety and various operations support services. His role evolved to senior vice president in 2007 before his promotion to executive vice president in 2011.
With this transition, Peter Bernhardt will move away from the career he built with PC Construction over the past 37 years and take on the role of chairman of the company, succeeding Jim Pizzagalli, who will remain a director. While Bernhardt will no longer be involved with daily company operations, he will continue to be a PC Construction employee-owner and work on a part-time basis dedicated to serving McCarthy and the board of directors.
