Vanir Construction Management Inc., a Sacramento-based construction and development firm, announced Monday that industry veteran Guy Mehula will become the firm’s new president.
Mehula, who has more than 35 years of experience in the global construction industry, replaces longtime Vanir executive John Kuprenas, who left the company.
“Guy brings an impressive resume, a successful track record, a wealth of global experience and is a proven leader – just what Vanir needs for its next phase of growth,” said Dorene Dominguez, chairwoman of the Vanir Group of Companies, Inc.
Vanir said Mehula has spent the past three decades in senior management jobs around the world. That includes a stint at Parsons Corp., the Southern California company that bills itself as one of the world’s largest engineering, construction and management services firms.
At Parsons, Mehula served as president of the company’s Middle East Africa unit. Before that, Mehula was chief facilities executive at the Los Angeles Unified School District. He also headed military construction projects during a 25-year U.S. Navy career.
Vanir Construction, a division of Vanir Group of Companies, concentrates on public-sector projects such as schools, hospitals and prisons. It has offices in 11 states and internationally.
