Emily Henry has joined Boston-based Suffolk’s Dallas-Fort Worth team as director of business development, supporting the growing demand for construction and the builder’s rapid expansion into DFW.
Suffolk, one of the largest construction enterprises in the country, said that Henry would be responsible for strategically identifying opportunities that support “smart growth” for the company, expanding on recent project wins in aviation, residential, and the public sectors, while “reinforcing the unique Suffolk culture and reputation as the most innovative builder in the country.”
“Texas, specifically Dallas-Fort Worth, is experiencing a tremendous period of growth, and Suffolk is uniquely positioned to deliver complex projects for clients across a variety of sectors,” Brad Brown, president of Suffolk’s Texas region, said in a statement. “Our innovative technologies, data-driven approach, diversified portfolio of services, and strong value proposition have opened doors for us in a competitive market, and the addition of Emily Henry will allow us to introduce Suffolk to new clients in sectors facing increased demands.”
Henry has 20 years of experience in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry, most recently as director of business development for a global landscape architectural firm based in Dallas-Fort Worth.
There, Henry oversaw strategic growth for the entire business through identifying and pursuing projects that diversified the brand’s portfolio, increased its presence, and advanced sustainability through the interconnection of physical, economic, social, and environmental goals.
Henry is a member of the Texas Real Estate Council (TREC), Urban Land Institute (ULI), and the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA).
“I am eager to elevate the visibility of Suffolk in Dallas-Fort Worth through combining my experience and passion for cultivating relationships with the resources and innovative culture at Suffolk,” Henry said in a statement. “The exceptional commitment to lead the industry in areas like technology and sustainability will further Suffolk’s reputation as the builder of choice for Dallas-Fort Worth and its future.”
Suffolk said it has been expanding its presence in Dallas-Fort Worth steadily, doubling its employee base in just one year.
It said recent strategic hires in Dallas-Fort Worth include President Brad Brown, Vice President Gary Gunter, and Vice President-Project Executive Patricia Solorzano.
Suffolk’s Dallas-Fort Worth projects include The Terminal at Katy Trail, The Dallas Fort Worth International Airport Terminal C renovations, the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport Electric Central Utility Plant and the Mesquite Government Center.
Suffolk’s Dallas office also managed operations for the Saracen Casino in Pine Bluff, Arkansas.
