Expanding Design-Build Firm Calls Forth New Leadership
Atlanta-based LEVEL5 is pleased to announce two key leadership moves effective July 31, 2018. Luke Kassler, formerly Chief Operating Officer, is now President of LEVEL5. Mr. Kassler has served as the company’s COO since 2015. Craig Bradley, President of the Special Projects Division, is now Chief Operating Officer.
Brad Eller, Chief Executive Officer stated, “Luke has been instrumental in our business and profit improvement for over 6 years. His business acumen and strong vision will carry LEVEL5, successfully, into the future.”
Mr. Eller continued, “Craig joined our team a few months ago via a merger. I have known and worked with Craig Bradley for over 20 years. Craig’s strength of character will undoubtedly help LEVEL5 achieve our company’s vision and goals today and into the future.”
The leadership changes come on the heels of the company’s recent merger with Raleigh, NC – McKee Building Group. The merger was a key piece in the long-term expansion and growth strategy of the business. Brad Eller will remain CEO, and will provide leadership for the business as well as Luke and Craig.
“LEVEL5 for its first 15 years has focused specifically in serving banks and credit unions through our complete design-build solution”, said Luke Kassler. “We are very proud of our reputation and legacy in the financial industry. Currently, we are enjoying a surge in growth as we are being sought after for our expertise. However, the Special Projects Division provides us even greater capabilities to grow the business and serve our clients.”
Craig Bradley added, “The reason we brought the two businesses together are the synergies, expertise, and scale of the combined team. The long-term plan is not only to diversify the industries we serve, and do it with excellence. The team we are assembling has great energy and ability to drive results. The future is bright because of the steps we are taking today to position us for tomorrow.”
