NEW YORK – Shawmut promoted two executives to oversee its Tri-State division with a focus on academic, institutional, cultural, commercial, healthcare, and life sciences projects. Sharon Cadman and Steve Giordano will co-lead the division to bolster Shawmut’s long-term growth in the area.

“Shawmut has become a key player in the tri-state area’s academic, cultural, and scientific community, and we’re eager to expand and deepen those roots into the commercial, healthcare, and life sciences markets,” said Les Hiscoe, CEO of Shawmut. “As we considered the breadth and depth of this market, one of the largest, most prestigious, and sophisticated in the US, we wanted to appoint a winning team. We selected them to co-lead these efforts because we pride ourselves on providing a great client experience. And with Sharon and Steve, our clients reap the benefits of two exceptional leaders working to ensure we bring the best of Shawmut to bear when catering to their specific needs.”

Cadman and Giordano will focus on providing an unrivaled construction experience for their clients. Their unique combined set of skills will further Shawmut’s commitment to delivering the highest design aesthetics, on-time and on-budget, while fostering the firm’s signature “people first” culture across the division.

In her 21 years at Shawmut, Cadman has held numerous high-level finance positions within the organization including her most recent post as National Director of Business Finance. Cadman was integral in the launch and growth of Shawmut’s New York office over the past 16 years and is well steeped in Shawmut’s culture and values. Cadman holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Loyola University, Montreal, and is a ACMA (UK) of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants. She is also an active and passionate contributor to Summer Search in New York.

Giordano has spent his tenure at Shawmut becoming ingrained in the Tri-State division as its director of construction operations. Prior to Shawmut, he served as a high-level construction executive for 22 years in New York. He holds a bachelor’s degree in architecture with a minor in construction management from Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute, and is a real estate council member for the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Metro New York chapter.

Cadman and Giordano are assuming leadership at an exciting time for the division. The team is currently working on projects at Columbia Medical Center, Riverdale Country School, and St. John’s University. These projects are the latest additions to an impressive roster in the area, including work at Columbia University, The Buckley School, The Masters School, Convent of the Sacred Heart, The Met Breuer, The Whitney, and Eli Lilly.
