JACKSONVILLE, FL – Haskell is pleased to announce the appointment of Matt Gulden as Consumer Products Division Leader in the Industrial project delivery group. Following a series of executive promotions in January, Gulden’s reassignment is a significant next step in implementing Haskell’s growth and diversification strategy. As Division Leader, Gulden is responsible for the oversight and expansion of the current and prospective client base by providing facility, process, packaging and material handling solutions in support of client needs.
Having worked with clients like Kimberly-Clark, Clorox, and Church and Dwight, Haskell is no stranger to the consumer products industry, and Gulden brings a wide variety of Haskell experience to this role. Gulden joined the Haskell team as an Assistant Project Manager in 1996 and was quickly promoted through the ranks of project management to General Industrial Division Leader before becoming the Consumer Products Division Leader last month.
“The consumer products market presents great opportunity for Haskell,” said Gulden. “The wide variety of products produced by clients in this segment represents the core of the modern consumer economy. By providing turn-key, total facility solutions to our manufacturing customers, Haskell is well positioned to help clients achieve the aggressive goals required to support this segment’s growth.”
Haskell has always believed in integrated solutions. The firm was a driving force in the development of the Design-Build project delivery methodology and led the formation of the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA). Recently this methodology has been expanded to include systems in addition to the facilities in manufacturing applications. “Through recent acquisitions Haskell has added manufacturing system design and integration expertise to our portfolio,” said John-Paul Saenz, President of Haskell’s Industrial Group. “We have assembled the best in the business into a single offering targeted at client focused solutions that deliver certainty of outcome in project execution.”
“Our Engineer, Procure, Construct (EPC) Delivery method allows us to provide single source accountability for entire manufacturing centers for our clients,” said Gulden. “I am excited that we are in a great position to offer the strength of our total portfolio to clients in the Consumer Products space. We believe our method offers better cost and schedule control as well as reduced risk and outcomes that are right in line with client expectations.”
Matt Gulden is a graduate of Pennsylvania State University, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Architectural Engineering. He is a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) and has 16 years of experience in the industrial and consumer products industries.
Haskell, one of the industry’s leading integrated design, engineering and construction firms, offers client-focused solutions in the commercial, industrial and civil infrastructure markets. With more than $550 million in annual revenue and over 1,500 completed projects to date, Haskell serves a multinational client base from strategic points across the United States and in Mexico.
