ESTERO, Fla. — Full-service construction firm Kaufman Lynn Construction has opened a new office in Estero to lead the company’s projects in Southwest Florida. Concurrent with the opening, Daniel Root was named regional senior vice president to lead the new office.
Root started working with Kaufman Lynn five years ago as a project executive and took on roles of increasing responsibility since then. In his new role, Root will be responsible for the overall management and strategic planning of the company’s construction projects throughout the region.
The office will manage the existing four projects Kaufman Lynn currently has underway in the area, including at least one seniors housing community. Kaufman Lynn announced plans to hire five to 10 more support staff for the new office.
Root earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration and management from Plymouth State University in New Hampshire.
