Carpenters Add Walsh to Leadership as COO

The North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters is proud to welcome John Walsh to its senior management team. An 18-year member of the union, Walsh joins the union administration as chief operating officer. He will work with Executive Secretary-Treasurer Joseph Byrne and other members of the senior staff to manage operations of the regional governing body of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America (UBC).

Walsh comes to the position from Samuels & Associates, a leading developer and property management company in Boston, where he was a senior construction manager. He began his construction career as a member of Carpenters Local 327, working his way up from carpenter to superintendent and earning a degree in Project Management from Wentworth Institute of Technology. Walsh worked with F.L. Caulfield & Sons and Barletta Construction before spending 13 years with Turner Construction serving in many management roles.

“John has worked his way up through the industry with great success and with industry-leading companies. His knowledge and experience will help our union maintain the efficiency and responsiveness that our members and employer-partners deserve,” said Byrne. “We look forward to benefiting from his diverse skill set and unique perspective.”

“This union has earned its reputation as a serious stakeholder in the construction industry that works hard to create mutually beneficial partnerships,” Walsh said. “I’m excited to join the leadership team and be a part of working both internally and externally to maintain and improve what we do.”
