We are pleased to announce that Robert (Bob) Murray, SVP has expanded his region to provide leadership throughout the Midwest, including the Downers Grove office in the Chicagoland area. Jim Wegman will continue to serve as VP/GM for the office in Rosemont, IL. Bob started his career at Alston in 2006, serving as Sr. Project Manager on the iPort 12 project in New Jersey.

In 2012, Bob was promoted to Operations Manager for the office in Edison, NJ. During this period, Bob did an excellent job in developing key Owner relationships with Medline Industries which challenged him to provide oversite for this key client across the entire Alston footprint of 23 offices nationwide.
