McKinstry increases presence in West Coast market

SAN DIEGO — McKinstry recently announced the selection of Tom Bowen to lead the establishment of its new Western regional headquarters, located here, and direct its Energy and Facility Services operations.

Bowen, former vice president of Sempra Energy Services in North America, is in charge of helping McKinstry grow its California client base while offering a comprehensive suite of energy-related solutions that includes energy procurement, energy efficiency, demand response, sustainability, design/build, facility operations, contractor selection and management, carbon footprint reduction, retro-commissioning, energy modeling, and performance-based contracting.

A California native, Bowen brings 20 years of energy services experience to his new role, having managed successful teams throughout North America focused on energy and environmental initiatives. A former board member for the National Association of Energy Services Companies, his knowledge in diverse markets will allow McKinstry to position its unique brand of services in the state. Bowen’s knowledge and experience in diverse markets will enable McKinstry to create value for local customers while expanding McKinstry’s presence.

Joining Bowen is Michael Moriarty, former director of project delivery for Sempra. Moriarty’s project development and implementation experience provides McKinstry with a strong leadership foundation to guide the expansion.

Bowen and Moriarty plan to expand further into Arizona and Nevada, servicing clients with sustainability programs that have come to characterize McKinstry.

In 2008, Barack Obama brought McKinstry into the spotlight by citing the company as a “Model for the Nation” for its thorough leadership and advocacy of moving the country towards a greener, more sustainable economy. With Bowen and Moriarty as part of the leadership team, McKinstry will continue to solidify its position as an industry leader in energy efficiency and sustainable design/build services.
