Greer, SC – Global Management Partners is pleased to highlight the addition of three new employees to our growing team of capital project professionals.

Mike Higgins – Contract and Construction Manager

Grassroots, brownfields, big, small, it doesn’t matter; Mike has experience with many projects in many industries.  Mike has a total commitment to safety, understands the importance that planning, communication, coordination, and project controls measures have on a project.  Mike picks up on early indicators, helping his team avoid pitfalls.  With over 40 years of construction management experience, combined with a strong driving work ethic, nothing slips past Mike.  A great addition to the GMP team! 

 John Trahan – Piping Specialist

John’s title of piping specialist doesn’t begin to describe the varied skill set that he can bring to a project.  His career began as a piping designer, then moved into operations.  His combination of experience both on paper and with his hands on led John back into piping design leadership with a heavy dose of field experience.  John grasps the total project picture, a planner, a manager and to those working around him, a teacher and mentor.  John leads piping crews to success.

 Raylan Riley – Electrical and Instrumentation Lead

Raylan is highly motivated, an excellent communicator and has a passion for both mentoring and continually learning.  Raylan honed his technical abilities working 29 years as an instrument technician with ever increasing responsibilities.  He utilizes his depth of knowledge to help others understand how to plan work, commission installations, and troubleshoot problems efficiently.  Raylan is both a leader and a team player, a great addition to any project team.

Superior outcomes. Consistently delivered.
