A Boiling Springs man with two decades of construction industry experience has been chosen to lead efforts by Cumberland County-based Mowery to pursue business in the logistics and warehousing sector.
Seth Hughes’ primary responsibility will be the maintenance and expansion of Mowery’s market share of logistics-related construction, including assisting with business development efforts and maintaining client relationships, officials with the Silver Spring Township construction company said.
Known for decades as R.S. Mowery & Sons, the company was recently rebranded as Mowery.
“This is a significant announcement that represents our continued commitment to and pursuit of the warehouse/distribution market,” said Mowery President and COO Dave Cross.
“Mowery is a major builder of warehouse/distribution facilities. Our team has completed approximately 20 million square feet of warehouse/distribution projects, and the addition of Seth will continue to add to that growth,” Cross added.
Hughes has more than 21 years of experience in the construction industry in a variety of roles, including tradesman, department manager and leadership positions.
Hughes, who lives in Boiling Springs with his wife and three children, earned a bachelor’s degree from Penn State University. He enjoys camping, hunting and fishing, and much of his spare time is dedicated to supporting youth sports and coaching in his local community.
Mowery was the biggest mover in this year’s CPBJ list of Top 100 private companies, climbing from 39 to 23 on the list. That jump was fueled by a more than 90 percent growth in revenue, up $65.4 million to nearly $137.6 million in 2015.
