For almost 20 years, Jon has managed many of AEI’s largest and most technical projects. Spending the majority of his time with biotech/pharmaceutical clients, Jon has combined this focus with previous pharmaceutical construction experience at a multi-national company to compile extensive knowledge and understanding about the unique construction and maintenance needs of that industry. Given the typical structure of these clients, they require a multi-dimensional partner company that can handle complex cleanroom projects, multiple classifications of lab construction, dirty mechanical jobs, daily maintenance requests, and all the common support areas that exist on a corporate campus. Jon is proficient in all such assignments and everything in between. Ranging from GMP manufacturing process installations to sensitive lab environments to high-end corporate office fit-outs, the versatility of Jon’s experience reflects the comprehensive capabilities of AEI.
As Director of Operations, Jon is responsible for managing the day-to-day functions for the company, scheduling resources, client account management, project controls oversight, and implementation of all AEI strategic initiatives. He is the chief liaison between field and office operations, ensuring that all project execution aligns with company policies and objectives.
Jon’s recent project accomplishments include managing several GMP manufacturing renovations at Biogen’s Cambridge, MA campus, mechanical infrastructure replacement/upgrades at NECO in Boston, MA, a series of lab renovations at Genzyme in Waltham, MA, and development of a new services account at Lantheus Medical Imaging in N. Billerica, MA.
