Santa Clara, CA based Pacific Ridge Builders, Inc. (PRB) is delighted to announce that Persis McGinn has been promoted to Director of Client Relations. Her experience includes 10 years of construction project management and 8 years of construction marketing/business development in the Silicon Valley CRE market. In her new role, Persis will work with the company’s project teams to ensure that PRB consistently provides a remarkable customer experience on every project, for every client.
“Persis knows the commercial construction industry well and maintains an amazing reputation among both clients and peers,” said Pacific Ridge Builders’ President and CEO, Thomas Newman. “The addition of Persis to our team has been wonderful, as she brings her experience, dedication, leadership, and fun-loving spirit to all she works with. Now we are raising the bar by committing Persis 100% to making sure that all of PRB’s clients receive the best customer service and support this industry can offer.”
Born and raised in the Bay Area, Persis attended St. Francis High School, Foothill College, and San Jose State University. She started her CRE career as an administrative assistant at McCandless Management in Santa Clara, where she caught the commercial construction bug and was inevitably promoted to construction project manager. Her stand-out projects with the McCandless team include two ground-up buildings— 3965 Freedom Circle in Santa Clara and 750 University Ave in Los Gatos—both of which she saw to completion.
Persis joined Pacific Ridge Builders in 2017; now, as Director of Client Relations, her focus is customer care. She will collaborate with PRB’s project management teams and on-site supervision to make sure that the company’s meticulous product quality standards are met and that client expectations are always exceeded upon project delivery. As Pacific Ridge Builders’ list of happy customers continues to grow, the company is looking forward to offering another valued level of service to their new and existing clientele.
“One of my strengths is cultivating and nurturing relationships; it’s part of who I am, and I love it,” Persis said. “Those who know me know that I keep my word and that I have my clients’ and construction partners’ best interests at heart. We have built a like-minded team at Pacific Ridge that I am proud to be part of, and I am eager to innovate together to perfect the PRB service and project standards already in place. I absolutely enjoy our work, and I will stop at nothing to make sure that clients can put their trust in our team and enjoy the ride as much as we do.”
Persis is a LEED Accredited Professional. She is active in her community both personally and professionally, being named Morgan Hill’s 2013 Volunteer of the Year and BOMA-SV’s 2014 Associate of the Year. Persis is able to continue her volunteer efforts at Pacific Ridge Builders through various avenues already in place at the company.
