Manhattan Construction Group Splits Oklahoma Division


Davis, KirLee, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Manhattan Construction Group has split its Oklahoma division into two groups, one focused on Oklahoma City, the other on Tulsa.

With commercial contractors facing increasingly competitive times, Tulsa-based Manhattan hopes having two separate divisions will help it secure more projects.

"From a geographic standpoint and a market standpoint, these two markets are different from each other and they need the personal touch," said Bob Jack, the senior vice president and chief of the new Tulsa division.

Last year Manhattan recorded $343 million in Oklahoma billings.

"We need to grow somewhere in the 5- to 10-percent range," said Jack in a telephone interview Monday. "This helps us put more kinds of boots on the ground when it comes to business development."

Jack's promotion seems a natural one, the four-decade industry veteran elevated from Manhattan's Tulsa-area manager post.

"I've worked all my life in Tulsa," he said.

His new Oklahoma City counterpart is Mark O'Rear, a 23-year industry veteran promoted from a Manhattan project manager post.

"He's a young guy that's really kind of an up-and-comer with the company," said Jack. "That's one of the side benefits of all this. It has given us the opportunity to promote a number of younger officers."

Chris Pribil marks another example. The former project executive, who has worked in this sector two decades, was named the Oklahoma City operations manager.

John Snyder, who led Manhattan's former Oklahoma business unit, was named executive vice president of national accounts, his focus on Native American construction projects.
