O’Neill has worked for the Marion, Mass.-based contractor since 2015, starting as a construction site supervisor and promoted to project manager and then business development executive.

A construction veteran with international experience, O’Neill has worked in supervisory and laborer roles on construction projects in his native Ireland, Australia and the U.S. During his tenure at South Coast Improvement, he’s worked as supervisor on renovations at Harvard University, Northeastern University, Boston College, MIT, Milton Academy Milton Academy and numerous other projects.  His business development accounts include projects at Concord Academy, the Perkins School for the Blind, the Atria in Stamford, CT, Brookdale Senior Living and a number of other SCI projects.

O’Neill cut his teeth in the construction industry as a glazier back in his native homeland of Ireland. His supervisory career began as crew manager for Clifton Formwork in Melbourne, Australia in 2009. When arriving to Boston in 2011 he learnt the skills of carpentry, drywall and veneer plastering, which helped prepare him for the site supervisor role he took on when joining South Coast Improvement in 2015.
