KCI welcomes John M. Furman, CCM, PMP, LEED AP, as business developer for the firm’s construction management discipline. He will be tasked with growing KCI’s facilities and program management service lines in the vertical construction management market for all regions. Initially, Furman will take the lead program manager role for the firm’s work at Sparrows Point Terminal, where the 3,100-acre Bethlehem Steel property is being redeveloped into a gateway industrial complex featuring a deep water port.
Furman brings to the firm more than 37 years of executive experience in the construction/program management industry. Prior to joining KCI, he served as senior vice president for Heery International, where he oversaw operations in 26 states and provided regional leadership to a team of 150 project and construction managers. His responsibilities have included business development, executive leadership, marketing and program oversight, and he is recognized as an industry leader by both public and private sector clients.
At our peak, we have about 300 people in construction management, with more than 80 percent inspecting transportation projects. John’s recent experience ranges from areas within several of KCI’s geographies to cities outside of the firm’s footprint, including Philadelphia, Chicago and Boston. His strong municipal and private sector relationships will help him bring on new clients outside the transportation market and expand our facilities and program management services throughout the company.
