SEATTLE – Skanska, a leading provider of construction and construction management services in the Pacific Northwest since 1946, announced the promotions of Lew Guerrette and Rob Robinson to the role of Vice President and Account Manager. Both Guerrette and Robinson will be responsible for leading project delivery that enables new possibilities for Skanska’s customers.
Guerrette has 26 years of industry experience, including 20 with Skanska. He has a diverse range of project experience throughout the Pacific Northwest with a focus on the Life Sciences sector and is especially well-versed in aligning the construction process with the needs of clients. As committed to his teams as he is to his clients, Guerrette also led Skanska’s Seattle office training programs, helping employees in a variety of roles develop their abilities and careers. He has a bachelor’s degree from the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
Robinson is also an industry veteran, currently in his 30th year of experience, the last 21 of which have been with Skanska. Robinson has a rich resume that includes many of the most well-known businesses in the region. As our region has grown, he has been a partner of several local school districts, delivering new K-12 facilities that meet the changing needs of communities throughout the Puget Sound region. Robinson has established himself as an expert on the GC/CM (general contractor/construction manager) delivery method and advises all of Skanska’s teams working on such projects. Robinson received his bachelor’s degree from Washington State University.
“Lew and Rob both have a unique talent for finding new ways to look at projects and developing solutions that differentiate our approach,” said Skanska Executive Vice President and General Manager Kevin McCain. “They have been invaluable members of our team for years and our clients will benefit from having them sit at our local office’s management table.”
With more than 70 years of history in the Puget Sound region, Skanska combines generations of local knowledge with the vast tools of a global construction and development firm to build what matters for local communities. Skanska’s portfolio ranges from local landmarks, such as Benaroya Hall and the Museum of Glass, to small tenant improvements and major infrastructure projects like the replacement of the southern mile of the Alaskan Way Viaduct. Recognized as one of the region’s top corporate philanthropists, Skanska is also committed to creating new opportunities for local small, traditionally disadvantaged businesses.
