Ryan Heeter, a construction industry veteran with more than two decades of experience, has been named senior vice president leading XL Construction’s healthcare and corporate office business groups.
Heeter joined XL Construction in October 2020 to co-manage and begin transitioning the leadership of the corporate office business group from longtime industry veteran Ron Paradies who will be retiring at the end of this year.

In his new role, Heeter will be responsible for broadly managing and building the company’s healthcare business group. Prior to joining XL Construction, he served two years as the chief operating officer at GE Johnson Construction Company. Before that, he enjoyed a 20-plus year tenure at McCarthy Building Companies, where he held several posts including his most recent as executive vice president.
Heeter is passionate about improving the construction industry for all participants with his greatest business passion in Lean, Design-Build and alternative delivery models. Years ago, he co-founded the Sacramento, California-area Design-Build Institute of America.
