"Jenn has a proven track record of delivering high-quality work to our clients, coupled with great enthusiasm for our employee-owners at Swinerton," said Terry McKellips, Senior Vice President and Region Manager. "Her focus on developing people aligns perfectly with Swinerton's values, making her the right person to lead Silicon Valley."
Swinerton maintains an office in Santa Clara, California. The division is engaged in various projects, from ground-up buildings to tenant improvements and renovations. The team is actively completing nearly $200 million in construction in the area, such as the Milpitas Unified School District Performing Arts Center, multiple projects with Stanford University and Stanford Health Care, and low-cost rental housing in Salinas Valley, West Valley Community College Learning Resource Center, confidential fintech institutions, and the Santa Clara Unified School District Agnews campus. Under Lauritzen's leadership, the Silicon Valley Division aims to strengthen its position in the South Bay.
Lauritzen and the Silicon Valley Division remain involved in community-focused initiatives. Swinerton employees volunteered nearly 100 hours to support Silicon Valley nonprofits in 2022. The partnership with Rebuilding Together - Silicon Valley has seen annual contributions exceeding $10,000 since 2014, accompanied by volunteer projects to repair homes for low-income seniors.
"One of my passions in life is aligning and inspiring teams," Lauritzen said. "I am thrilled by the opportunity to collaborate, challenge, and empower our Silicon Valley team members to maximize their potential and deliver spaces that truly make a difference in our communities."
