South Coast Promotes O’Neill

Gareth O’Neill

Marion, MA – South Coast Improvement Company recently promoted Gareth O’Neill to business development executive. He started as a construction site supervisor in 2015 and later was promoted to project manager.

A construction veteran with international experience, O’Neill has worked in supervisory and laborer roles on construction projects in his native Ireland, Australia, and the U.S.

During his tenure at South Coast Improvement, he’s worked as supervisor on renovations at Harvard University, Northeastern University, Boston College, MIT, Milton Academy, and numerous other projects.

“We are losing an excellent project manager but gaining a force in helping us develop new clients,” said Tom Quinlan, president of South Coast Improvement Company.

O’Neil cut his teeth in the construction industry as a plasterer and hanging dry wall. His supervisory career began as crew manager for Clifton Formwork in Melbourne, Australia.

“With his breadth of experience, Gareth can discuss with new clients their projects from a builder’s point of view and that is invaluable to us as a company and, more importantly, our next repeat client,” Quinlan added.

“To me, the construction industry provides great learning opportunities and I could not ask for a better classroom and teachers than the team here at South Coast Improvement,” said O’Neill. “I’m extremely excited about this new opportunity to help South Coast Improvement continue the growth we’ve experienced the last several years by winning more repeat business and new client projects.”
