Seán joined Bradford Allen in 2024, bringing over 25 years of chief engineer experience with a proven track record of excellence in engineering operations.

Before joining Bradford Allen, Seán was chief engineer for CBRE at 150 North Riverside Plaza, a 1.2 million-square-foot, Class A building where he was part of a property management team that guided the property to the BOMA 2021 International TOBY award in the over 1 million square foot category. During his time with CBRE, Seán also received the 2023 BOMA/Chicago Gold Circle Award for Engineer of the Year and the 2022 CBRE National Engineering Exceptional Performance Award, displaying dedication and excellence in the field. Seán enhanced operational efficiency, reduced utility costs, and ensured tenant satisfaction through innovative engineering solutions. He has collaborated on cross-functional teams, led technical training programs, and contributed to industry-specific mentoring initiatives. He has participated in property transitions, commissioning oversight, and created comprehensive facility policies.

Before joining CBRE at 150 North Riverside, Seán started up 1330 W. Fulton for Sterling Bay. Navigating the commissioning process there while overseeing the ten tenant buildouts provided Seán with a unique perspective that illuminated gaps in the handoff of built environments to the property management team.

Seán served on the Chicago Gaelic Park Board of Directors from 2017 to 2021. The Gaelic Park Board’s mission is to promote Irish culture through sports, music, dance, theatre, and religion.

Seán holds a B.S. from DePaul University and is married with two sons. One son is actively involved in the performing arts scene at Lincoln-Way East, and the other is a freshman at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
