Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 06, 2016
Gilbane Building Company announces the addition of Omar McIntosh to lead the firm’s self-performance division and workforce in the mid-Atlantic region.

In addition, we are recruiting a diverse workforce of tradespeople who reside in the communities where we work while providing opportunities for career growth and access to award-winning training programs for them.” Representative construction skills for the workforce include small equipment operators, skilled and unskilled laborers, and carpenters. Procurement of tools and equipment are also managed under the division. Mr. McIntosh will leverage best practices from other metropolitan centered self-perform divisions that Gilbane operates.
Mr. McIntosh earned his Masters in Business Administration from the Carey Business School at John Hopkins University and holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Morgan State University. He serves on several boards including the ACE Mentor Program DC Affiliate, Morgan State University Foundation, African American Real Estate Professionals, Inc. and is a youth committee member for the Prince George’s County Economic Development Corporation.
