Balfour Beatty Construction has hired Mike Baumbach and Jeff Thompson to lead its newly formed healthcare business unit in their Carolinas Division. The two executives will lead the division’s efforts to grow its expertise and client pipeline within the Carolinas, eastern Georgia, and southwest Virginia.
“The move to Balfour Beatty is important to us for several reasons,” said Jeff Thompson, who will assume a business development leadership position. “The ability to combine national healthcare expertise and Balfour Beatty’s leading local market presence is a good strategic fit. Their reputation for their people-focused culture, streamlined local decision making, and the entrepreneurial spirit of employees are among the many reasons we feel comfortable bringing our already established relationships to their Healthcare business unit.”
Baumbach and Thompson have worked together serving healthcare clients in both public and private sectors.
“Personally, it is very gratifying to once again work closely with Mike and Jeff, having started my career working shoulder-to-shoulder together at the same Charlotte-based construction company in 1986,” said David Dooley, executive vice president.
Healthcare projects Balfour Beatty Construction has been involved in include Parkland Hospital in Dallas, Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, and the Walter Reed Hospital in Bethesda.
