USA Building promotions in California, Oregon and Texas

In California, Raul Rosales was promoted to vice president/account manager; in Oregon, Jeff Fisher was promoted to senior director of business development; and in Texas, Chris Hillyer was promoted to vice president of preconstruction for the state and Linh Le was promoted to preconstruction executive director for Houston.

With 29 years of experience, Rosales most recently led the team that completed the Palo Alto Medical Foundation’s San Carlos Patient Center, our first true integrated project delivery effort.  He will now serve as the primary Skanska liaison for a variety of USA Building’s customers in California.

“Raul has proven his operational excellence on multiple projects since joining Skanska in 2006,” said Bruce Holms, executive vice president and general manager. “He is one of the primary drivers of lean methods on our projects, and his experience with integrated project delivery allows him to deliver exceptional value to his clients.”

With Fisher, he has led operational oversight for high-profile projects with key clients that include Portland State University, Nike and the Oregon Institute of Technology. In his new role, Fisher will lead business development efforts for Building’s operations in Oregon and southwest Washington state.

“In Jeff’s 19-plus year career with Skanska, he has developed a deep understanding of our doer-seller approach,” said James Link, executive vice president and general manager. “Now, he’s tasked with advancing that model and creating additional strategies to increase client engagement and satisfaction throughout our key business lines.”

Hillyer, in his new role, will be responsible for overseeing our Texas-wide preconstruction efforts, while also retaining direct oversight for the San Antonio and Rio Grande Valley markets. He has spent his entire 18-year career at Skanska. Also, Hillyer has been instrumental in the success of several recent projects, including two projects with USA Commercial Development: 3009 Post Oak Boulevard and the ongoing Capitol Tower project, both office towers in Houston.

In his new role, Le will be responsible for direct oversight of Building’s Houston preconstruction team. Since joining Skanska two years ago, he has provided valuable preconstruction services for many projects, including Texas A&M’s new College of Veterinary Medicine; West Memorial Place Phase II, also for Commercial Development; and Prairie View A&M University’s new football stadium.

“With our ever growing pipeline of new work in Texas, Chris and Linh have both proven to be valuable, collaborative team members, finding the sweet spot in being competitive and providing our clients value, while also meeting our financial goals,” said Dennis Yung, senior vice president/national preconstruction director.
