Valley native takes key role at MCR
COLUMBUS – Columbus-area builder MCR Services, Inc. has named Scott Gallagher, a native of Bridgeport, as vice president. In his new role, he will lead daily operations and help prepare the company for their next phase of development.
MCR has been a strong player in the Ohio construction industry since 1995, with a mixed portfolio of commercial and residential and a focus on large-scale supportive housing. They weathered the economic downturn with a focus on “methodical, strategic growth”. The firm has grown their workforce by 300% over the last 18 months, and is now well-positioned to take on key projects in the central Ohio area and beyond.
Gallagher’s appointment will allow founder and president Wade Hungerford to focus on strategic growth and business development. “Just as in building construction, when growing a company it’s important to make sure the foundation is strong. That’s what we’re doing with our growth strategy and Scott’s promotion,” says Hungerford.
Gallagher, the first CPA in the history of the firm, has served as controller since joining the company in May of 2011. In his new role, he will retain this title and take on additional operational responsibilities. Prior to joining MCR, he worked for M/I Homes, Casto, and a large site/concrete construction company in various roles, including auditor, property controller, and land development estimator. Hungerford says that this diverse background will serve the company well. “His experience allows him to see things from different perspectives. He has a unique ability to build consensus and inspire teams.”
Mr. Gallagher grew up in Bridgeport, Ohio and attended St. John’s High School. He graduated from Wheeling Jesuit University in 1992 with a B.S. in Accounting. He now lives in Columbus, Ohio with his wife, Julie, and two children. When he is away from work, he coaches volleyball and basketball at St. Pius X in Reynoldsburg. Gallagher says he brings lots of lessons from coaching to his business philosophy. “You’ve got to focus on the fundamentals, on doing things right. If you get the most important things right, everything else falls into place.”
