Birmingham-based HPM recently announced the hiring of industry veteran Bruce Quisno as the company’s newest senior program development manager, according to a release from the company.
Founded in 1997, HPM provides comprehensive guidance to clients on the construction and development process and offers “a one-stop approach to complete program management and owner’s representation.”
HPM says Quisno will provide strategic leadership and direction for new and developing client engagements while serving as a key component between business development and the operational phases of an assignment.
“Bruce’s diverse background, deep connections in the industry, and ability to see through the lens of the owner make him an extremely valuable addition to our leadership team,” said Greg Ellis, vice president of program development at HPM. “His can-do personality and passion for cultivating strong client relationships have served him well throughout his career, and those traits will play an integral role moving forward as HPM prepares to enter new markets and expand our service offerings. We look forward to seeing Bruce apply his strategic leadership skills as he helps guide us into the next chapter of our growth story.”
Quisno, a registered architect with more than 35 years of experience in design and construction, most recently served as vice president of retail at CR architecture + design in Cincinnati, where he directed strategy and execution for the firm’s national retail teams. He spent 20 years as vice president of construction at Macy’s, where he managed projects for Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s Southeast, South Central and Midwest regions. He led design and construction efforts for new stores in both Hawaii (Bloomingdale’s) and Puerto Rico (Macy’s), as well as supervising the design and construction of a 2.2 million-square-foot fulfillment center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
“I’m thrilled to join the team at HPM and look forward to building upon its strong foundation of integrity and creative, client-focused solutions,” said Quisno. “My background and prior experience provide key advantages for building holistic strategies that are responsive to the needs of owners and help generate meaningful results. Now more than ever, program managers must rise to meet the emerging challenges in our industry while identifying new opportunities to add value for clients. I’m grateful for the firm’s confidence and look forward to hitting the ground running.”
