Haydon Building Corp announces new leadership

Haydon Building Corp, one of the leading general contractors in the Southwest, announced the promotion of Katie Haydon Perry to Executive Vice President and Matt Carpenter to Chief Operating Officer. Current president, Gary Haydon will remain actively involved in the day-to-day operations of the company as he works closely with Perry and Carpenter to successfully transition them into these new roles.

As part of the strategic succession planning for the company, Perry and Carpenter’s promotions are one of the first steps in ensuring the successful future of the company. Over the past 28 years, Haydon has become a leader in the construction industry through integrity, accountability and strong business relationships. Continuing the company’s success into the next generation will require continued strategic leadership and development of the entire organization.

Perry has over nine years with the company, beginning her career in the financial area of the business and growing into a leadership role through the development and continuous improvement of the culture and people at Haydon. Her main responsibility in this new role will be focused on strategy to successfully position the company for sustainability and growth for the next 30 years. Perry’s experience working closely with Gary Haydon and the entire leadership team has prepared her well for this role. 

“These two have the passion necessary to take this business into the next generation. They are good counterparts to each other, spend a lot of time and effort growing the people around them and look for ways to expand the presence and operations of Haydon. I am excited to watch them grow in their new roles,” said Haydon, President of Haydon Building Corp. 

Carpenter started with the company as a college intern and has spent almost all of his 19-year career with Haydon, working in a variety of roles. Carpenter developed professionally under the mentorship of Mark Eklund, VP and Partner at Haydon, learning the business through a number of management and leadership positions. In his new role, Carpenter will have a more strategic focus on market trends and identifying new opportunities to grow the business. One of the things he is looking forward to accomplishing through the growth of Haydon is providing the opportunity for the next generation of employees to achieve the personal and professional growth they desire.
