NEW YORK, NY — Today, Skanska, a leading global construction and development firm, announced leadership shifts within its USA Building senior executive team. Kerim Evin, Anita Nelson and Greg Peele will apply their extensive industry expertise to new Regional Executive Officer (REO) leadership roles. Skanska also announced Bryant Farland has stepped down from his role as REO, to pursue a new opportunity.

“It is with mixed emotions that I share Bryant is leaving Skanska to pursue a new venture. Over 17 years, Bryant’s unwavering support and thought-provoking insights have played a key role in our success,” said Paul Hewins, President and CEO of Skanska USA Building. “We are fortunate however, to have a strong leadership bench at Skanska. Kerim, Anita, and Greg will bring valuable new perspective to these roles, help build on our success to date, and guide us into the future.”

Effective immediately, Kerim Evin will assume REO responsibility for a region encompassing New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Connecticut. In addition to her current role as Chief Strategy Officer, Anita Nelson will assume REO responsibility for the Skanska Integrated Solutions (SIS) team. Greg Peele is promoted to REO for the Southeast and Central regions, responsible for work in Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, and Ohio.

Kerim Evin joined Skanska in 1996 as Senior Project Manager and has since held a series of increasingly senior roles. He has served as REO for the New England and Southeast regions for the past five years.

Anita Nelson joined Skanska as the first Chief Strategy Officer in 2019. Assuming REO responsibility for Skanska Integrated Solutions (SIS), will build a greater alignment between SIS operations and Skanska's overarching USA Building strategy, business plan, and other key areas of focus.

Greg Peele joined Skanska in 2000 and has served as Executive Vice President and General Manager for North Carolina and Virginia over the past eight years. Under Peele’s leadership, the North Carolina and Virginia markets have grown significantly.
