PHOENIX-The Weitz Co.’s Southwest Division is growing. The company, which touts itself as the oldest construction firm West of the Mississippi, has added 16 employees since May, bringing the hires to 30 in the last seven months.

Among the Southwest Division’s new team members are Luis Marquez, who will serve as project manager; Melinda Guse, who was named assistant controller; Julie Usher, division payroll and job cost controller; and Paul Carlisle, Mike Ostwinkle, Paul Van Sande, Chris Piper, Peter Belletti, and Stephen Smith, all named to project superintendent positions. Also joining the staff is Jim Yechout, a project superintendent intern; Kara Blesener, Missy Conley, and Ryan Schmitz, all project engineers; Shaun Knops and Josh Thrap, both serving as project engineer interns; and Kelly Geiger, who will work as a project coordinator.

The company’s rapid expansion also has prompted the firm to relocate its Phoenix office. The team will move later this month from 444 N. 44th St. to 5555 E. Van Buren. The new location will house more than 100 employees and allow the company to expand further, said Southwest Division president Larry Mohr.
