Stephen Cooper promoted to Director of McCrory Construction’s Greenville operations

January 3, 2022

McCrory Construction announces the promotion of Stephen Cooper to Director of Greenville Operations effective January 1, 2022. Most recently, Cooper held the position of Senior Project Manager. With more than 10 years of project management experience, Cooper has led some of McCrory’s most demanding projects from early-stage preconstruction efforts through completion. Much of his focus has been on design-build delivery of sizable industrial and commercial projects – both new buildings and facility upgrades. As the newest member of McCrory’s senior leadership team, Cooper will be responsible for the overall management of the company’s Greenville office.

At 104 years old, McCrory Construction is the oldest general contractor in the state of South Carolina. Headquartered in Columbia, McCrory is ranked among the Southeast’s largest and most respected construction services providers and consistently listed as one of the Top 40 Privately Held Companies in South Carolina.

“This is an exciting time for the Greenville office, which continues to exhibit strong and steady growth. I am confident in Stephen’s ability to take on the challenges associated with running a business unit – and I have no doubt that he will lead his team in a way that will exceed the expectations of current and future clients,” said Allen Bridgers, President of McCrory. “As Stephen assumes responsibility for Greenville’s day-to-day operations, Executive Vice President Don Warren, who has been an invaluable mentor to Stephen, will transition to a corporate leadership role.”

Last year, Cooper was recognized as one of Greenville Business Magazine’s Best & Brightest 35 and Under – an elite group of young professionals who are making a difference in their workplace and community. Cooper had the distinction of being the only construction operations executive in the 2020 Class of Greenville’s “Best & Brightest.”

Cooper is a 2011 Graduate of Clemson University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Construction Science and Management (CSM) and a minor in Business. He is a member of the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA), a well-established, highly respected industry association. He is currently studying for the rigorous exam required to become a DBIA Certified Professional, a prestigious industry credential. Cooper lives with his wife and two children in Simpsonville.
