West Palm Beach-based Verdex Construction has appointed Jeff Attanasio to the newly-created position of Chief Operating Officer (COO). Attanasio, a 25-year construction industry veteran, will manage operational oversight, establish high-quality training programs for staff, and extend efforts toward operational consistency, among other duties. In addition to the COO position, Verdex recently added industry veteran Andrew Colb as Chief Financial Officer. The moves strengthen Verdex's executive team as it continues to experience remarkable growth since its inception in 2014.
“As our portfolio extends into new sectors and new geographies, these new additions to our executive team will assure current and future clients that we're living up to our brand of 'Building Something Better',” said Rex Kirby, President of Verdex Construction.
Attanasio has worked for some of the nation's largest construction firms, and most recently supervised $400 million of work at the $1.5 billion Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino project in Hollywood.
“I share Verdex's values of fair treatment and strong relationships with our partners, and I look forward to making major contributions to the company's exponential growth,” said Attanasio.
Verdex Construction projects throughout South Florida include the Canopy Hotel in Downtown West Palm Beach; 1000 North, an upscale restaurant/club on the Loxahatchee River in Jupiter; Sabbia Beach Condominiums, a 19-story, 68 unit luxury residential tower in Pompano Beach; and the Town Southern apartments project in Royal Palm Beach.
In just four years, Verdex has already received numerous awards and recognition, including being named by GrowFL as a Florida “Company to Watch,” and Startup Business of the Year by the South Florida Business Journal.
