Swinerton Bolsters San Diego Leadership Team with Promotion of Project Executive

Swinerton Builders San Diego is proud to announce the promotion of Terri Schmid to Project Executive of their Special Projects Group. With more than 25 years of construction management experience in a variety of different markets, Terri is the perfect choice to oversee the group’s diverse portfolio.

Focusing on tenant improvement projects under $10 million, under her leadership the Special Projects team has recently completed successful projects in hospitals, universities, mid-rise condos, data centers, hotels, casinos, theaters, office buildings, and restaurants.

Swinerton Builders Vice President Mark Payne shares, “Terri has been a tremendous asset to Swinerton. Her experience, leadership skills, and focus on customer service were instrumental in her promotion to head our Special Projects team in San Diego.”San

With work increasing steadily over the past several years, Terri’s leadership has been vital to the Special Projects Group’s continued growth in the industry. She now heads a team of over nine project managers, seven project engineers, and nearly fifteen superintendents. Constructing multiple projects at once, she helps them excel under fast-track conditions and the pressure of a short schedule.

Teamwork and stakeholder involvement are key components to her management style, as is paying attention to detail and staying on top of all tasks. She takes pride in projects that are completed on time with a satisfied owner, and instills the same pride in her team for ensuring their success.

 “Always do your very best on each project, and strive for repeat business and customer satisfaction,” she says. “Listen and learn at all times on every project. Don’t take anything for granted. Learn from all challenges—and do not repeat them.”   

With Terri onboard as Project Executive, the future looks bright for the San Diego Special Projects Group.
