Dan Polito

100% employee-owned general contractor ACCEND Construction is pleased to announce that Dan Polito is joining the firm as Preconstruction Manager. In his role, Polito will guide clients through the preconstruction process to seamlessly plan, budget and execute commercial construction projects. Dan is an experienced preconstruction and construction management executive with a focus on tenant improvement projects in the technology and professional services sectors.

“Dan’s reputation in the marketplace and his deep relationships make him an all-star addition to our team,” said Andy MacGregor, President of ACCEND Construction. “Dan and I started working together almost eight years ago, when he led construction of a high-tech manufacturing facility for a Fortune 20 Company. Dan is a powerhouse – he is deeply committed to helping his clients and teammates reach success. His work ethic, attention to detail and dedication to the industry will add tremendous value to everyone he interacts with.”

A Chicago native with more than a decade of construction experience, Polito has built over 1.5 million square feet of space for the region’s leading companies including University of Chicago, Motorola Mobility, Capital One, and Constellation Brands. Prior to joining ACCEND, Dan spent the last five years in the San Francisco Bay Area building relationships and constructing innovative spaces for technology and financial firms including Google, Prezi, Instacart, Flexport, Glassdoor and JPMC, amongst many others.

“I’m honored to join ACCEND and I’m looking forward to returning to my Midwest roots,” said Polito. “It is my vision to create the industry’s most sought after client experience, re-inventing how customers perceive and interact with construction companies. Through careful project planning, lean construction principles, continuous improvement, over-communication and the strongest work ethic, I know the ACCEND team will deliver on all promises.”

ACCEND, a people-first construction company, specializes in building commercial interiors, labs, new construction and heavy renovations. The company exists to optimize the construction experience at all levels by making projects easy, transparent, efficient and fun. The ACCEND team knows how to lead complex and wildly creative projects and are ready to dig in to help clients as an ally and partner. By utilizing an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), ACCEND is one of the only general contractors in the nation to offer every single employee the opportunity to be an owner. ACCEND is also a member of the Skyline family of companies, which provides a national footprint, but with a more personal feel than large, national construction companies.
