Primera Engineers, Ltd. is pleased to announce the promotion of Mary O’Toole to Senior Vice President. Mary will continue to lead Primera’s expanding Business Consulting division out of our Lisle, Illinois office as a key member of our executive team.
Since joining Primera in 2014, she has become an instrumental part of our firm’s success. Under her leadership, our Consulting team has grown significantly from a few consultants managing a single Project Management Office (PMO) contract for a local utility to a team of more than 15 program managers, consultants and analysts with a diversified service offering and multiple contracts for large firms across the Midwest and Northeastern United States. Her expertise is the result of more than 35 years of utility and energy experience. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and a Master of Business Administration from Loyola University Chicago.
Mary’s commitment extends beyond her work. Throughout her career, she’s been actively involved in a number of professional organizations and is passionate about helping others learn and grow. Having had some incredible mentors and leaders, she’s constantly striving to do the same. Her efforts were recently recognized with the Maverick Award at the 2016 Energetic Women Conference in Dallas, Texas.
“From day one, Mary’s been invaluable to our firm and the clients she serves.” said Erin Inman, Primera President and CEO. “She leads by powerful example and is truly deserving of this recognition. I look forward to seeing what she does with our growing consulting practice.”
