Newport Beach-based McCarthy Building Cos. newest president, Randy Highland, earlier this week assumed the role of overseeing the nonresidential contractor’s financial performance and overall operations for the company’s California region.
Previously, Highland served as president of the company’s Nevada/Utah division. During his tenure overseeing that territory, the division received a number of accolades, including “Best Places to Work,” “Contractor of the Year” and “Safest Contractor.” Highland also presided over a period of strong growth in the company, despite a challenging economy; the group grew from $50 million to $200 million.
In his 23 years with the company, Highland held a number of positions within the California division’s operations, including director of parking structures, Total Quality Management director, preconstruction director and executive vice president of operations.
“Randy was recruited by McCarthy more than 20 years ago because of his skills, passion and leadership potential,” said McCarthy CEO, Michael Bolen. “He has clearly demonstrated a strong commitment to innovation, quality, client service and social responsibility throughout his career at McCarthy, and I am confident that Randy will lead the California Region to even greater heights.”
Highland brings more than 30 years of experience in the construction industry, as well as a background in many leadership roles. He has previously served as vice president for the United Builders and Contractor’s Association; member of the UNLV Construction Management Advisory Board; member of the Board of Communities in Schools of Southern Nevada; and president of the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Las Vegas from 2009 to 2010, as well as a number of other positions.
