When planning the future, Hermanson Company is continually looking for creative, dedicated leaders whose skills and knowledge will help take our company to new heights. Because of their past contributions and future potential, we are thrilled to announce the addition of two new members to the Hermanson partnership team, Beth Chandler, Marketing Director and Jacob Besagno, ODS Business Development Manager.
Ms. Chandler is a 33-year veteran of the A/E/C industry and is an integral part of the Hermanson Sales, Marketing and strategic planning team. Her experience includes working with Architects, Engineers, Contractors, and Developers to implement the sales process and to continuously improve written and media presentations by professional staff. In her 19 years with Hermanson Company, Beth has been responsible for supporting the conversion from a primarily Plan & Spec bid sales process to a proposal / interview-heavy negotiated Design-Build and Design-Assist process. A graduate of Eastern Washington University (English / Humanities – 1984), Ms. Chandler began her career with Integrus Architecture in Spokane before moving to Hermanson Company in 1998.
A dynamic leader, Mr. Besagno has been instrumental in helping Hermanson build its Owner Direct Solutions (ODS) by heading departmental business development activities. ODS encompasses Preventative Maintenance/Service, Energy Services, and Owner-Direct Construction, as well as the recent additions of Test & Balance and Chiller Maintenance services. Under his direction, ODS sales have grown exponentially, and the Hermanson Owner Direct Solutions division is thriving. A graduate of Seattle University (2005, Marketing), Mr. Besagno’s innate focus on team building was driven home through his time as a professional soccer player with the Seattle Sounders. (2005-2007) – a skill that he has used to great benefit with his ODS sales and operations team.
We are very excited to welcome these outstanding individuals as Hermanson partners.
