WOBURN, MA – Cummings Properties announced the promotions of four seasoned colleagues in its construction division. Scott Crowley, Dan Linscott, Alian Lyons, and Luis Padilla recently advanced their positions at the Woburn-based commercial real estate firm.
“Given the talent and dedication among the Cummings team, we place a strong emphasis on promoting from within,” said Cummings Properties chairman and CEO Dennis Clarke. “Often, when a leadership role opens up, it not only offers an opportunity for one colleague to grow professionally but also causes a chain reaction when that individual’s role must then be filled.”
Former Woburn grounds team leader Scott Crowley has advanced to associate manager of the firm’s 2.3 million-square-foot portfolio in Beverly. Crowley, a Chelmsford resident, has worked at Cummings for eight years.
“Scott has a diverse knowledge of sitework, sound ideas and insights, and a natural talent for mentoring,” said VP of field operations Greg Ahearn. “His ability to think quickly on his feet and adapt to changing circumstances makes him a strong fit for this management role.”
Assuming the team leader position previously occupied by Crowley is Luis Padilla of Revere. During his 15-year tenure with the company, Padilla has continually broadened his trade-related skills and progressed through multiple internal job classifications.
“Luis excels at seeing the ‘big picture’ of a project, working collaboratively with colleagues, and keeping jobs moving efficiently,” said Ahearn.
In the wake of a recent retirement at Cummings, Dan Linscott of Littleton has become one of two construction division managers at the Company’s Woburn headquarters. Linscott came to the Company with more than 30 years of experience, mostly recently including 10 years as senior director of construction with SIMON Property Group. He will now oversee all construction and maintenance activity for nearly 3 million square feet of commercial space.
“Dan’s considerable construction knowledge, coupled with his hands-on style, good working relationships with colleagues, and meticulous follow-through, will serve him and the Company well,” said Ahearn.
Providence, RI resident Alian Lyons has been promoted to carpentry team leader in Woburn. A former scuba instructor in his home country of Jamaica, Lyons joined Cummings Properties six years ago as a general worker and has since become a skilled carpenter.
“Alian is extremely driven and self-motivated,” said Ahearn. “He regularly demonstrates his capacity to manage substantial projects and has long been widely viewed as a leader.”
