Caruso hired Reza Safavi to be its new senior vice president of project management, the West L.A. firm announced Thursday. Safavi was poached from Taslimi Construction, where he worked for 25 years.

In his new role at Caruso, Safavi will guide the scope, timing, budget, and risk management of projects. He will oversee the development of Palisades Village, which received final approval from City Council in June.

At Taslimi, he worked on the 240,000-square-foot redevelopment of the Creative Artists Agency offices in Century City, the renovation of the Beverly Hilton Hotel, and CBRE’s DTLA headquarters.

Meanwhile, Turner Impact Capital has a new senior manager: Randy Slaughter is the new senior vice president of operations.

Slaughter was the director of security at Canyon Partners, according to his LinkedIn. At Turner, he will specialize in risk management and will work out of the firm’s Santa Monica headquarters.

On the creative front, KTGY Architecture + Planning has promoted its executive director of production, Ryan Flautz, to associate principal. He joined KTGY in 2011 and has worked on projects such as townhomes and apartments in northern California. Flautz’ background is in residential design and project management.
