Seattle-based marine contractor Manson Construction Co. announced Jon Rodriguez assumed the role of chief financial officer (CFO) effective August 15, 2022. Rodriguez will serve as Manson's third CFO in the last 30 years.
“Jon is highly qualified for this important position and joins Manson with a proven record of performance and years of industry experience,” said Manson president John Holmes. “We look forward to Jon’s leadership as he positions his departments to most effectively support our organization and its operations, including the adoption of our new enterprise software.”
With more than 30 years of experience in the engineering and construction industry, Rodriguez has held several operating roles for mid-to-large-sized firms. Of those 30 years, he has spent 25 years as CFO for multiple organizations.
In 1987, he joined construction services firm Berryman & Henigar (now Bureau Veritas) and rose to the position of CFO. At Berryman & Henigar, he helped increase revenue by over 25% and completed several mergers & acquisitions. In 2003, Rodriguez acted as the lead negotiator in the firm's sale to Bureau Veritas, where he was instrumental in the integration of five acquired companies post-acquisition.
