Christopher J. Payne, PE, CCM has been named President and Chief Operating Officer of MBP. Chris joined the firm in 1993 and has risen steadily through positions of increasing responsibility. Prior to being named President, he served as MBP’s Chief Operating Officer. Chris has more than 30 years of experience in construction management and design, performing a wide variety of services including construction project management, inspection, CPM scheduling, and cost estimating. He has specialized experience in the resolution of construction disputes to include analysis of delays and expert testimony, both nationally and internationally.
This election, which took effect on April 18, 2019, is another step in the thoughtful transition of MBP’s ownership. As part of this transition, Blake V. Peck, PE, CCM, will remain in his position as Chief Executive Officer, and Charles E. Bolyard, Jr., CCM, PSP, CFCC, will continue to serve as Chairman. Both remain actively involved in the firm’s business including client project work, strategic planning initiatives, client relationships, and mentoring.
“We are excited about the opportunities for our team’s continued growth through the evolution of our senior leadership,” said Bolyard. “We have a high level of confidence in Chris and look forward to his increased impact as we focus on well-defined, long-term strategic goals, the development of our team members, and meeting the growing needs of our clients.”
