St.Louis—McCarthy Holdings recently announced that Felipe Manriquez will begin his activity as the firm’s first Corporate Lean Manager. In this role, Manriquez will be responsible for overseeing McCarthy’s comprehensive Lean program for the family of McCarthy companies. He is based in McCarthy’s Southern California regional headquarters in Newport Beach, Calif. Currently, McCarthy is implementing Lean principles on nearly 100 active projects.

With 15 years of experience in the construction industry, Manriquez joined McCarthy in 2008 as an assistant project manager. Since then he has helped deliver a variety of projects in the healthcare, education and entertainment markets. In 2014, he was promoted to project manager to help oversee the construction of the $82 million Chapman University Musco Center for the Arts, implementing Lean construction practices to maximize efficiency and deliver increased owner value.

“Starting to implement Lean early in the design phase helps us deliver greater certainty for clients throughout the entire process. Streamlining the best of what works, eliminating what doesn’t, and doing so in a collaborative way that respects the people pulling it all together is what makes Lean so powerful. I’m looking forward to working with client and project teams to put the power of Lean to work,” Felipe Manriquez said in a statement.
