Hill International, which manages construction risk, announced the retirement of Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer John Fanelli III and the appointment of Senior Vice President and Interim Chief Financial Officer, Marco Martinez.
Fanelli joined Hill as CFO in 2006 and played an instrumental role in Hill’s growth, providing oversite of the accounting, finance, treasury, taxes and due diligence functions as the company expanded its global operations. Hill is grateful for Fanelli’s years of distinguished service and helping to position the company for success. Fanelli will remain a part-time employee with Hill for three months to assist with the transition.
Marco Martinez brings nearly two decades of financial leadership and analysis experience to Hill. Martinez most recently served as senior vice president and CFO for Pernix Group, Inc., a government, commercial, industrial and power sectors construction company. Prior to joining Pernix, Martinez held several financial leadership positions including vice president and CFO during nearly an 18-year career at MYR Group, a specialty contractor serving the electrical infrastructure industry in the U.S. and Canada.
“John was an integral part of Hill’s growth over the years, and I would like to thank him for his leadership and invaluable contributions to developing our financial organization and building the firm,” said Paul Evans, Hill’s Interim CEO. “I look forward to the positive impact Marco will bring as he leads Hill into the future. His previous CFO background and experience will help ensure Hill has continued sustainability to meet client needs and grow shareholder value.”
