Firmo Construction Hires Three Team Members, Expanding Construction Team and In-House Staff
The growing construction management firm adds a Superintendent, Project Manager, and Director of Marketing & Communications to its team
Sarasota, Fla. (August 24, 2020) – Sarasota-based commercial construction management firm, Firmo Construction, has added a Superintendent, Project Manager, and Director of Marketing & Communications to its expanding team. In response to its increase in regional construction projects, as well as new builds in Florida’s panhandle, the team behind Firmo has found itself experiencing an incline this past quarter, resulting in the addition of Jeff Bryde as Superintendent, Brittany Edwards as Project Manager, and Nicole Miskovic as its first Marketing & Communications Director.
“With a 20 percent increase in our commercial construction development pipeline this year in comparison to last, our team is enthusiastic and fortunate to experience a new stage of growth during this time,” said Eric Collin, Owner and President of Firmo Construction. “Providing job security and responsive resources for our existing team has been a priority for us right now, so it’s been rewarding to also create new employment opportunities for these three additions to our team.”
A professional renovator by trade with more than 30 years of experience in construction, Firmo’s new Superintendent, Jeff Bryde, has worked on high-end commercial and residential renovations and build outs, with projects completed all along the eastern seaboard. With a broad range of leadership experience across multiple facets of the industry, he will oversee Firmo’s day-to-day field operations of projects from inception to completion, maintain health and safety standards for each project, and ensure a smooth transition from blueprint to reality.
Brittany Edwards, a Women in Construction advocate, joins the team with more than 10 years of experience in the field. A LEED Accredited Professional specializing in work with the mechanical trades, her work spans from the World Trade Center Transportation Hub in New York to project engineering for a fast-paced missile defense station in a remote corner of Alaska. She will continue to apply her skills and expertise as Firmo’s newest Project Manager.
As Director of Marketing & Communications, Nicole Miskovic will be the first team member dedicated to managing the company’s internal and external communications and marketing efforts, developing and implementing strategies to elevate and strengthen Firmo as a leading commercial construction management firm in the region. Her previous in-house and agency experience fostered her expertise, which includes media relations, creating and executing communications campaigns, as well as measuring and evaluating marketing performance in industries ranging from corporate and healthcare to nonprofits and construction.
“We’re excited to bring these three experts in their field on board as they support us in a new stage of evolution in our company,” said Stefan Baron, Vice President of Operations at Firmo Construction. “Together, they bring decades of additional leadership to a team with a mission to deliver business owners’ visions in our region and beyond.”
Firmo Construction is known for its optimized technological application to the construction industry, recently introducing a Virtual Reality service as a cost-savings tool for business owners, promoting a no change order guarantee. Its innovative builds, sustainable mindset, and commercial projects, such as the ground-up build of Tru by Hilton in Sarasota County, the ground-up build of Hampton Inn and Suites by SRQ Airport, and the revitalized Homewood Suites by Hilton, are also attributed to the rapidly expanding company. Firmo has also been recognized as the 35th fastest growing company in the Gulf Coast and continues to expand its expertise throughout Florida.
