NewGround Promotes Sean Twomey to Director of Program Management

Creation of new role reflects plans to double current project volume


CHESTERFIELD, Mo., June 13, 2017 – NewGround, a St. Louis-based experiential design-build firm, recently celebrated the promotion of Sean Twomey to the role of Director of Program Management. This move is in preparation for an anticipated surge in client activity and growing need for additional program management support.

Recent momentum throughout the past couple years has pushed NewGround to establish new goals for its strategic plan, which doubles the current project volume.

With more than 15 years of diverse, large commercial and institutional project experience, Sean is a licensed architect who leverages his varied project delivery experience into creative solutions that maximize client choice and interaction. Sean brings a collaborative attitude to the NewGround team and strives to provide innovative solutions to satisfied clients, producing stunning yet functional designs.

Prior to his new role, Sean guided NewGround’s internal design team and external consultants for the 180,000 square foot Logix Federal Credit Union Headquarters based in Valencia, California. He plans on continuing those efforts during the near term in addition to advancing other projects within the project development forecast.

“Sean is a dedicated, hard-working professional who will bring a fresh perspective to his new position,” said Chip Nix, Senior Vice President of Build Operations. “He has many years of experience in design-build and exceeds client expectations, making Sean the best candidate to handle the scope of projects we have on the horizon.”

Sean received a Master of Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia.

”I am honored that NewGround has chosen me to assume this new role in our enhanced program management department and am excited to lead our team of exceptional Program Directors by managing identified projects in the development process,” said Sean Twomey, NewGround Director of Program Management.
