We are proud to announce the promotion of Dan Polito to Project Executive. Previously serving as Preconstruction Manager, Dan will continue to build on his client-facing experience in his new role, while also developing staff and creating high-performing teams to deliver on clients’ expectations. As Project Executive, Dan will oversee the work of all project teams from start to finish, ensuring success throughout the entire construction project.


“Dan has proven to be a fantastic guide for our clients through the whole construction process and we know he will be successful as Project Executive,” said Andy MacGregor, President of ACCEND Construction. “His solid reputation, ability to foster relationships, and passion for the work we do shines through in every project. His commitment to his team and dedication to the industry will continue to be valuable to our clients.”


As a Chicago native, Dan began his construction career building over 1.5 million square feet of space for the region’s leading companies including the University of Chicago, Motorola Mobility, Capital One, and Constellation Brands. Five years ago he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area to construct innovative spaces for technology and financial firms including Google, Prezi, Instacart, Flexport, Glassdoor and JPMC, among others. In 2020 he was recruited by ACCEND and returned to Chicago where he has planted roots and intends to remain.


“I’m grateful for this opportunity to continue helping our clients’ construction needs become a reality,” said Dan. “I’ve really enjoyed my time at ACCEND, especially working directly with clients and our project teams to achieve their goals. I’m thrilled to take on my new responsibilities as Project Executive.”
