Swinerton, a national general contractor with regional offices in Charlotte, N.C., and Atlanta, has announced the addition of Rashad Morton as Project Executive in Atlanta, adding nearly four decades of expertise to the firm’s construction teams.
As Project Executive, Rashad Morton is tasked with capturing market share in healthcare by forging new relationships within the industry, generating brand awareness and winning projects for Swinerton’s Atlanta division. Morton joined Swinerton in 2017 as Senior Project Manager in Los Angeles and recently relocated to Atlanta. Prior to Swinerton, he served in various roles during a 13-year tenure at McCarthy Building Companies, beginning as project engineer and rising through the ranks to senior project manager. Morton has been involved with approximately one million square feet of healthcare-related construction including hospitals, medical offices and medical centers for national healthcare systems.
“Rashad is really known for his consistency and systematic approach to any project – but he also knows when to be flexible and creative,” said Derek Mosiman, Vice President and Division Manager for Swinerton’s Atlanta division. “He is also quite adept at determining when to implement skill and tried-and-true methods and when to utilize a more improvisational approach to tackle challenges.”
At a construction site in South Los Angeles, for example, Morton provided career opportunities for local residents in an economically disadvantaged neighborhood encouraging community engagement, while building connections and a sense of pride in the neighborhood.
