Rosendin revealed the promotions of two young leaders, Brandon Stephens and Ben Mlinar, to help ongoing projects and find new business opportunities in the Southwest.
FREMONT, CA: Rosendin, the nation's largest electrical contracting employee-owned firm, revealed Brandon Stephens and Ben Mlinar's promotions. In their current positions, Stephens and Mlinar will help ongoing projects and find new business opportunities in the Southwest.
Stephens will serve as the Operations Manager for the Arizona, Texas, and Nevada offices of Rosendins. After seven years as Division Manager at the Tempe Regional Office, Stephens will hand over local Arizona operations to Mlinar, who has advanced steadily through the organization since joining in 2010.
The step supports the development of Rosendins into one of the largest electrical contracting companies in the country, concentrating on heavy industrial, commercial, and high-tech construction. In the September 2020 issue of Engineering News-Record (ENR), a leading industry journal, Rosendin was rated as the Southwest Region's top electrical contractor with $160.55 million in revenue and Arizona's top specialty contractor with $145.61 million in revenue.
Brandon Stephens, Operations Manager
As Operations Manager, Stephens will be accountable for putting Rosendins' existing operations under a single leadership umbrella in Arizona, Texas, and Nevada, to expand the regional team to foster consistency, customer collaboration, and maximize project efficiency.
"Rosendin is proud of Brandons commitment to growing the company, his team, and the next generation of leaders," said Mike Greenawalt, CEO at Rosendin. "Brandon inspires people to feel good about their work by reminding us how fun this job can be, which is a great motivator whether youre a new apprentice, a seasoned journey level worker, or a young leader. "
Ben Mlinar, Division Manager
Mlinar was promoted to the Tempe Regional Office as the Division Manager. He will be responsible for managing operations in the Southwestern Area, including a long-term project at a semi-conductor manufacturing plant, a new healthcare facility for Veterans Affairs, and the Tempe Streetcar project.
"It's been incredible to work with Ben over the last decade as he expanded his knowledge and skills to become a solid leader who has the full confidence of his team," said Stephens. "There is no one I would rather pass the torch to, and I look forward to seeing how he develops as we prepare for new growth."
