Bezanson joins Garver as Program Controls Manager
With the recent addition of Matt Bezanson to Garver’s Project Controls Team, Garver is building on a year of growth and taking another big step forward while expanding both its Project Controls and Alternative Project Delivery (APD) services.
An infrastructure professional with a broad range of experience including project finance, risk management, design, and construction management of major public works projects, Bezanson brings to Garver a wealth of knowledge – including experience on more than $6 billion worth of privately financed infrastructure transactions that have reached financial close.
"Matt’s role at Garver isn’t just a win for the Project Controls Team – it’s a win for all of Garver,” said Garver Program Controls Manager Mark Schwartz, CPM. “By providing a conduit between Project Controls and APD, he’ll utilize his in-depth understanding of project finance to further define what it means to be our clients’ most trusted advisor.”
In addition to having leading roles on more than $20 billion of alternative delivery projects, Bezanson also has extensive experience in quantifying, pricing, managing, and negotiating risk allocation for large complex infrastructure projects.
As Garver’s Project Controls and APD services expand, Bezanson will be focused on developing new metrics and reporting that are transparent, real-time, and appropriate for alternative delivery models to help leadership make informed data-based decisions.
“With Matt joining Garver, our combined Project Controls and APD Groups will be able to offer services to our clients that are virtually unheard of,” said APD Group Lead Adam Sheets. “By utilizing a range of innovative analytics platforms, he’ll help keep projects transparent and accountable – offering clients an accurate picture of where their funds are going at any given time.”
Additionally, Bezanson will be an in-house project finance expert to expand Garver’s capabilities in alternative delivery. Bezanson brings experience in structuring and closing TIFIA loans, Private Activity Bonds, private equity, and various other forms of innovative financing.
