Hiring a PM That’s Never Swung a Hammer with Alison McLennan and Marsha Hanna – [The Tim Faller Show] S5 E2

The Tim Faller Show live from Summit! Alison McLennan and Marsha Hanna joined Tim and Steve on stage for a discussion. Alison talked about how McLennan Contracting hired Marsha as a Project Manager, who didn’t have any carpentry experience. However, Marsha’s non-construction skills made her an excellent choice for the role. They also discuss what a business owner sees in someone that makes them take a chance on a critical role.

Alison McLennan is President of McLennan Contracting, an award-winning design-build remodeling company in Lancaster, PA. Alison and her husband, Tim, co-own the business and are passionate about creating a company culture that is characterized by collaboration and continual learning. Over the last 20 years, Alison has worn many hats at McLennan – mostly working behind the scenes – but in 2021, her Roundtables peer group encouraged her to accept the role of president, and she accepted. Her focus is now on growing as a leader and cultivating a workplace that empowers and enriches the lives of McLennan’s team.
