CHICAGO (Sept. 8, 2014)—Patrick J. Healy, 51, has been named vice president of business development for venerable Chicago-based contractor Bulley & Andrews, announced Allan E. Bulley Jr., the firm’s chairman and CEO. He will oversee all staff members responsible for marketing and business development for Bulley & Andrews in Chicago and Indianapolis. Healy succeeds Stephen Sever, who is retiring after 20 years as an integral part of the company’s executive leadership team.
“Patrick has in-depth knowledge of the Chicago and Indianapolis markets, the heart of Bulley & Andrews’ business,” says president and COO Paul R. Hellermann. “His accomplishments in sales and management as well as his understanding of engineering and construction make him a perfect choice for our company.” Hellermann adds, “And on a deeper level, Patrick has a reputation within the industry for exceptional integrity. We’re family-owned and -operated, and that’s very important to us.”
Bulley & Andrews’ reputation also attracted Healy. “Bulley & Andrews is known not only as one of the oldest contractors in the Midwest but also regarded as one of the best. Having competed against them many times in my career,” he chuckles, “I was, of course, well- acquainted with the company’s work even before coming on board.”
His priorities are to lead business development for Bulley & Andrews’ core construction business as well as its specialty divisions, including concrete and masonry restoration, and to increase its client base in core segments including healthcare, Cleanroom and higher education portfolios. “Bulley & Andrews already is very strong in these arenas—take, for example, its more than eight-decade relationship with The University of Chicago. I’m excited about carrying that forward.”
Most recently, Healy was business development manager for nine years at Turner Construction Company, also serving Chicago and Indianapolis. He has a strong record of accomplishments in both large-scale civil and private-sector construction projects in the healthcare, education, sports and hospitality fields, and brings 20 years of experience in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Healy lives in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood.
