Boston Office for VVA, Growing Construction Project Management Firm

NEW YORK, NY and BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - May 8, 2013) - VVA Project Managers & Consultants is pleased to announce the opening of its Boston office, a significant step in implementing its long-term growth strategy of expanding its global project management and cost consulting platform.

"Given the steady increase in project volume and client requests for project and cost management services in the greater Boston area, the natural progression is to establish an office in Boston," noted Lorenzo Vascotto, Founding Partner and Managing Director of VVA. "We have enjoyed very strong, long-standing relationships with our clients across the Americas and across the world, and are very excited to be able to offer a robust local presence in New England."

Chris Petryshin, former Director of Real Estate and Facilities of Ropes & Gray LLP, will serve as Managing Director. As a local resident who has called Boston his home for the last six years, Chris will be an invaluable asset, skilled at serving the needs of the region's very active real estate market.

VVA was founded in New York City in 1994 and has expanded its reach throughout the Americas with offices in Washington DC, and Sao Paolo, Brazil. In 2011, VVA enhanced its global service capabilities by establishing VVA Sweett, Inc., a joint venture unifying the forces of VVA and the Sweett Group, a premier global project management and cost consultancy firm.

VVA Sweett's global platform provides clients with access to over 1,400 professionals across more than fifty offices in the Americas, Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. The Boston presence marks the first official VVA Sweett office in the Americas, and advances an already successful initiative. VVA Sweett Boston is a key component in serving a New England client base while leveraging our firm's global expertise and resources.

Dean Webster, Chief Executive Officer of Sweett Group, said, "I am very pleased with the speed at which we have been able to develop our joint venture with VVA, which has already resulted in a number of cross-referrals and joint projects, not only in North America, but also across our network of offices in China, India and the UK."

VVA has grown consistently over the years, having welcomed new professionals to the New York HQ and DC offices in 2012. This year promises to be one of continued development in terms of staff and expanded footprint. In January, VVA welcomed John Di Girolamo, formerly a VP Project Executive at Morgan Stanley, to the New York team. This month marks the opening of the long awaited Boston office and later this year will mark the firm's launch in Los Angeles, California.
