Kevin McConnell
Director of Preconstruction 
The Associated Construction Company

Number of years at firm: 3

One thing on my bucket list: To travel by RV to the national parks with my family. After that, a European vacation and, later, a vacation home on the Cape. Trips like that create memories for a lifetime.

When I am not working, I am: Outdoors. I coach hockey & lacrosse and enjoy fly fishing and love outdoor activities. The common thread that flows through everything I do is family. My most enjoyable moments are time with my immediate and extended family members.

What recent project, transaction, or accomplishment are you most proud of? As a leader, I find fulfillment in creating an environment for employees to grow and flourish, achieved by securing profitable contracts for a stable and long-term workplace. Our goal is to ensure our team feels secure, happy and cared for, with growth opportunities. We recognize and reward employees for their achievements and personal development, aiming to impact their lives positively. We also provide training and support to help them develop their skills to succeed.
