H2M architects + engineers (H2M) announces that Charles A. (Chuck) Martello, P.E. has been promoted to Regional Office Director effective January 1st, 2022. Martello’s promotion signals a transition of leadership as Steven J. Hyman, P.E. retires from his Principal Office Director role.
Over the last five years, H2M has seen substantial growth in the tri-state area. The firm now holds nine offices including their most recently opened Connecticut location. All office locations have been managed by Principal Office Director, Steven J. Hyman, P.E.
Hyman recently retired from his full-time role and is moving into a part-time position as Leadership Development Specialist at H2M. Hyman has over 40 years of experience in the A/E industry and has been vital to the success of our regional office structure in the last three years. Prior to his role as Principal Office Director, Hyman was integral in rebuilding H2M’s Civil Engineering practice and developing the H2M Real Estate Market.
With this change, H2M’s Office Directors will be undergoing a transition in leadership as Martello takes on the role of Regional Office Director.
“One of the most critical pieces to successful growth is the coordinated management of our geographic office locations,” says H2M CEO and President Richard W. Humann, P.E. “Chuck’s role as Regional Office Director will ensure that we continue to improve the leveraging and integrating of all our markets/disciplines across locations regarding work sharing, standardization, diversification, market responsiveness, and teaming. I am so pleased to welcome him into this new role.”
In 2022, Office Directors will report directly to Martello, and he will have the overall responsibility for the success of regional offices and ensuring the cooperation/coordination of offices-markets-disciplines. He is well-suited for this new position as he has been with H2M for over 30 years. His previous role was Office Director of H2M’s Parsippany, NJ location, providing leadership and oversight to the office as the firm expanded their service offerings throughout the New Jersey market that they’ve had an active presence in for nearly 35 years.
