Structure Tone, one of the most active renovation construction managers in New York City, just added Cushman & Wakefield’s head of project management to oversee its large-scale interior work in the city.

Stephen Soviero, who worked for the commercial brokerage for 17 years, joins the construction management firm as an executive vice president, representatives for the company announced on Monday. Soviero, whose client roster has included Nike, Deloitte and Time Warner, will focus on business development and large office repositioning and relocation projects.

Soviero is one of the most senior-level employees that Structure Tone has hired since it changed ownership structure at the end of 2016. The company, led by CEO Bob Mullen since 2004 and run by the Donaghy family since 1971, decided to open up control of the company to 75 company managers and some outside investors as part of its efforts to shift to an all-employee ownership structure.

In The Real Deal‘s first-ever ranking of the city’s top general contractors, Structure Tone ranked number one by alteration and renovation projects. Among the company’s largest recent projects was MetLife’s 430,000-square-foot expansion at 200 Park Avenue.
