Riley Construction

Recent promotions and additions

Riley Construction, Kenosha, recently made several key personnel changes and additions.

Riley has hired Dan Sullivan as project executive with Chicago office team. Sullivan brings over 16 years of industry experience to his role, which will focus on executive leadership of Riley’s Chicago-area projects and oversight of the office’s strategy and operations.

Riley has promoted Chris Siefert, a 16-year Riley team member, to vice president of strategic projects. In his new role, he will oversee the planning and execution of the company’s largest and most complex projects in key markets, particularly the pharmaceutical sector.

“Bringing Dan to the team, as well as allowing Chris to focus his expertise on strategic-level projects, are both decisions based on the steady and measured growth Riley has enjoyed in recent years,” said Matt Prince, president of Riley Construction. “The changes reflect our optimism for the future.”

Riley promoted Ben Kossow, who joined Riley in 2000, to executive vice president of operations. Kossow was an integral part of the company’s growth in the Milwaukee metro area and will continue to lead that office as well as provide oversight of the entire company’s field resources. He will also manage Riley’s safety, lean/quality control, virtual design and construction, and project development departments.

Riley has promoted Erin Anderson, a 17-year Riley employee, to vice president of project management. She will lead the company’s project management strategy.

Riley has promoted John Delavan to vice president of pre-construction. He joined Riley in 1996 and is largely responsible for creating the company’s dedicated pre-construction department. In his new role, Delavan will continue to lead a team of world-class estimators as well as manage Riley’s IT group.

Riley has promoted Erik Dillon to project executive. He joined the company in 2006 and most recently served as a senior project manager. Dillon will use his extensive industry experience to provide high-level oversight of jobs in Southeastern Wisconsin, particularly in the industrial and healthcare sectors.

“It’s exciting to note that every one of these promoted employees has been with Riley for their entire careers,” said Prince. “That speaks volumes about how the company values its people and is a direct reflection on our commitment to our core ‘HIFI’ values of Humility, Integrity, Flexibility and Initiative.”
