With more than 22 years in the construction industry, Ryan Heeter joined GE Johnson Construction Company in August 2018 as Chief Operating Officer. Not only does he provide guidance in executing the vision for GE Johnson Construction Co.; he’s also on the GE Johnson Board of Directors, where he provides insight for all of GE Johnson’s business units.
A major component in GE Johnson Construction Co.’s vision is giving back to the community, and Ryan has been a driving force in recent corporate citizenship efforts. While GE Johnson has a rich history of giving back to the community, it is now an expectation that construction project teams have a community plan so that the Company can increase community participation at the project level.
Before joining GE Johnson, Ryan spent his career with McCarthy Building Company, working his way up from a project engineer to an executive vice president. In his construction industry tenure, he has worked in various capacities, including: operations, business development, preconstruction, finance, legal and risk management, human resources, and strategic planning.
An Oregon State University alum, Ryan graduated with a degree in construction engineering management and a minor in business administration.
When he’s not working, you can find Ryan enjoying time with his wife and three children, who all enjoy skiing, snowboarding, biking, hunting, fishing, and anything that gets them outdoors.
