South Coast Improvement Company (SCI), a design-build general contractor serving New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, recently promoted Sean J. Whalen to senior vice president.

In his new role at South Coast Improvement, Whalen will take on additional responsibilities in building relationships and strategic alliances, channel development, expanding the company’s sales markets and overseeing the sales team.

“The client experience defines our business and has been the leading factor to the growth and repeat business we’ve enjoyed over the last several years. Sean has been an integral part of that,” said Tom Quinlan, president of South Coast Improvement, Inc. “In fact, we could list the many things Sean does for our firm but when you get right down to it, his primary responsibility is ensuring the client experience on a senior level. He’s very good at it and worthy of this promotion.”

Whalen began with South Coast Improvement in 2012. Prior to that, he worked for more than two decades in business development for large public and private corporations as well as start-ups.
