Tishman Construction Corp., an AECOM company, has promoted Ed Cettina to Chief Operation Officer, Americas, for both Tishman and the overall AECOM construction services practice.
Cettina will focus on growing the firm’s operations and expanding its market share. He will manage the construction of projects across the United States, including the World Trade Center office towers 1, 3, and 4 and the complex’s transportation hub in New York, as well as the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.
Cettina, who has more than 25 years of experience with Tishman, had previously served as executive vice president and regional manager for New Jersey and Pennsylvania. He led the Building Team in many of the region’s projects, including the new Revel resort, the Pennsylvania Convention Center Expansion, CENTRA at Metropark, Borgata Hotel, Casino and Spa, and The Water Club Hotel.
“Throughout Ed’s stellar history with Tishman, he has managed highly complex projects and delivered buildings that exceed our client’s expectations,” said Dan McQuade, Chief Executive of Tishman and AECOM’s construction services practice, in a statement.
Cettina also had corporate administrative responsibility for Tishman’s preconstruction services for eight years, directing teams for New York City’s earliest environmentally sustainable commercial skyscrapers, including 3 Times Square, 4 Times Square, and the rebuilt 7 World Trade Center—New York City’s first LEED Gold-certified office tower.
