SEATTLE (October 29, 2020) – Leading Pacific Northwest general contractor, JTM Construction, announced today that President John Hayduk will transition to the role of Senior Advisor in January 2021, with Executive Vice President Martin O’Leary taking the helm. Hayduk co-founded JTM Construction in 2005, with O’Leary and Chief Operating Officer Tom Titus.

John Hayduk has dedicated more than 40 years to the construction industry, with a vision of being positively engaged in the Pacific Northwest, constructing some of our region’s most well-known buildings. These projects include Benaroya Hall, McCaw Hall, Museum of Glass, Frye Art Museum, renovation of Union Station, and 505 Union Station.

“We founded JTM Construction 16 years ago, fueled by a passion to build great projects and lasting relationships,” said Hayduk. “That passion drives us every day and I am excited about the future of the company with our great team.”

O’Leary brings over 30 years of construction experience in the Puget Sound region to his new position and a track record of notable successful projects, including Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center phase I, renovations of Group Health Hospitals in Capitol Hill and Redmond, 505 Union Station, and McCaw Hall.

“Planning for this transition has been in the works for the past few years.  We are committed to seamlessly continuing our work with our clients and strategically growing the company,” said O’Leary. “Relationships with our clients, partners, and team will continue to be the foundation of JTM Construction and I am honored to take on this vital role.”

O’Leary is backed by a talented leadership team including Tom Titus, Chief Operating Officer; Jenni Cox, Chief Financial Officer; Troy Bloedel, Vice President; Ben Coffman, Vice President; and Jimmy Craig, Special Projects Group Division Manager. This team has been instrumental in helping JTM Construction scale to the company it is today. They are focused on developing the next generation of leaders while advancing new technologies to meet client needs.

JTM Construction brings experience, the ability to scale, and a nimble structure that enables the firm to execute on projects of various sizes and complexity.

“With so much at stake, relationships and trust are essential when it comes to partnering with a construction firm to build a project on time and on budget,” said Mike Hubbard, of Capstone Partners. “Martin and the entire JTM Construction team approach building like a Rubik’s Cube – they solve problems. We always know they have our best interests at heart.”
