The Highland Group Announces Two New VP Promotions

March 20, 2023 (Foley, AL) – Scott Shamburger, President and CEO of The Highland Group, a leading real estate development and commercial construction firm, is proud to announce the promotions of two longstanding members of its senior leadership team.  As the group continues into 2023, Ryan Long is the new Vice President of the AL and FL Gulf Coast Markets and Josh Brock has accepted the position of Vice President of Preconstruction Services.

Long has been with the firm since its inception as the VP of Preconstruction Services.  Through his leadership, Highland’s preconstruction department has flourished and the leading construction company has effectively doubled in size each year since its founding in 2005.  With Long at the helm as Vice President of the ever-growing Alabama Gulf Coast and Northwest Florida territories, he will be able to provide a hands-on level of direction, continue to exceed customer service goals, and provide leadership for seamlessly integrated project deliveries.  

“I’m proud to accept this leadership role in our company and honored to be able to better guide Highland’s market reach for the considerable future,” said Long. “I have the utmost trust in Brock’s ability to lead our Preconstruction team going forward and am excited to be able to assist him in making the transition to this new role in our firm’s AL Gulf Coast office.”

With over 15 years of background experience in construction project management, business development, and estimating & procurement; Brock has made a sizeable impact within Highland as the Senior Project Manager and interim Vice-President of Northwest Florida since joining the company in 2021.  Since his acceptance of the Vice-President of Preconstruction Services position, Brock has immersed himself into Highland’s preconstruction processes and procedures and is excited to further his commitment to the fast-growing firm.

“I’m honored to assume this role, and sincerely appreciate the trust this company has placed in me,” exclaimed Brock. “I’m excited about what’s ahead for the company and embracing my role and efforts in contributing to the success ahead.” 

“It gives me greater confidence in knowing that Ryan and Josh will continue to support each other as they transition out of their current positions and into their new roles at our head office in Foley, Alabama,” remarked Shamburger. “Highland is extremely fortunate to have these two exceptionally bright and talented individuals on our senior leadership team. It’s through their efforts that we are in a position to continue our growth into 2023, and I couldn’t be prouder of them,” finished Shamburger.
