Hooksett, NH – Design-build firm PROCON recently announced its next generation of leadership.
With the sudden passing of their father, Mark Stebbins, earlier this year, John Stebbins and Jennifer Stebbins Thomas stepped into leadership roles as managing directors and, along with long-term PROCON officers, will lead the family-owned company.
Stebbins, who holds a master’s degree in architecture, has been involved in all aspects of the family business from the time he was a teenager working as a laborer, intern, architect. Over a decade ago, he returned to the family business full time working as a senior project manager for some of PROCON’s largest projects.
Thomas began working with the PROCON accounting department in high school. After time at a global management consulting firm, she returned to focus on the financial, legal and strategic aspects of the business.
PROCON currently employs 125 people and is looking to expand its workforce by 20% in the coming months. To accommodate growth, PROCON is looking to hire employees for all aspects of its business including project managers, superintendents, estimators, accountants, architects and mechanical engineers.
“Taking on a greater leadership role has been a natural progression and has been seamless thanks to the foresight and lessons my sister and I have learned from our father and grandfather,” said John Stebbins. “They taught us that happy employees make for happy clients and that begins with relationship building, trust and integrity. As we continue to grow, we are looking for people who appreciate our family atmosphere and positive work environment and can offer innovative solutions for our clients.”
PROCON’s Single-Source Design-Build solutions include Architecture, Virtual Design and Construction, Estimating, Engineering, and Construction Management. The company’s state-of-the-art, Class A headquarters in Hooksett fosters a collaborative work environment and is equipped with the latest technology.
“Our company vision remains the same,” said Jen Stebbins Thomas. “We will continue to be the leader in single source development solutions. We know that over the last few years, employees have been looking for different things out of their employer. They want to make a difference and feel supported in all aspects of their lives. John and I each have young children and we understand that when employees have balance between their work and home lives, it benefits both their family and their work. When our employees feel supported, they naturally deliver better work for our clients, and everyone wins. Our motto is: ‘At PROCON, every solution is just down the hall.’ Having the best people working here really brings that to life.”
“I have worked with PROCON and the Stebbins family for more than 20 years,” said Jeff Johnston, principal of Cathartes, a Boston-based private real estate firm with one billion in investments across the Northeast. “We miss Mark, but his spirit, knowledge, and positive attitude live on in John and Jennifer. I look forward to working with them and the PROCON team for decades to come. No one does it better.”
