McCownGordon filled two key roles in its Dallas-Fort Worth location, adding Peter Ramstedt, PMP, as its new vice president of Operations, to lead the regional operations team. The company also added Jason McRorey as Director of MEP (Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing), expanding the regional expertise it provides clients through its specialized Building Performance Solutions team. Both additions will contribute significantly to McCownGordon’s team in delivering outstanding services in the Texas marketplace.

Ramstedt, with more than 30 years of experience in the industry, comes to the company from one of the nation’s top construction firms where he led numerous projects over $500M around the globe and in the Texas market. Previously, Ramstedt served on the executive leadership team of the Dallas operation of one of the nation’s largest construction companies, where his portfolio ranged from mixed use, retail and high-rise developments to large infrastructure improvements and civic buildings.

“Peter brings to our team an extensive background in all aspects of operations, from estimating and preconstruction to executive oversight megaprojects in the U.S and around the world,” said Charles DeVoe, senior vice president and regional leader for McCownGordon’s Texas region. “His depth of experience includes program management for multi-billion-dollar projects, operational leadership for more than $590 million in completed construction projects, procurement of over $500 million in projects across 1,500 contracts and preconstruction leadership for over $1B worth of volume.”

A graduate of the University of Florida where he earned a B.S. in Building Construction with honors, Ramstedt holds an MBA from The University of Texas at Arlington, as well as a Master’s Certificate in Project Management from George Washington University. He also earned his Project Management Certification from the Project Management Institute.

Further building the team’s regional expertise, the company added Jason McRorey as Director of MEP. He brings more than 20 years of extensive project delivery experience to the team with expertise in the healthcare, corporate, food and beverage, life sciences, biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical, semiconductor and mission critical market sectors. In his new role, he will provide extensive value-added services to clients, providing them with deep expertise and analysis designed to ensure they gain the most value for their construction budgets.

“McCownGordon is known for our unique approach to ensuring our projects achieve not only our clients’ construction goals, but their long-term goals in operating buildings efficiently and cost-effectively,” DeVoe said. “Jason brings this valued skill to our Texas team along with his extensive operations experience working with a wide range of clients. His deep expertise with specialty markets like healthcare, biopharma and pharma, will bring a wealth of benefit to our clients.”

McRorey began his career as a superintendent after earning his Local 100 Apprenticeship from Richland College while attending high school. He also holds a certification in Plumbers and Pipefitters and trained in the OSHA 30-hour safety course at the same institutions. He’s a professionally licensed plumber in addition to bringing his extensive operations experience to the team.
