McLean VA, October 21, 2015 - CMAA has presented its highest individual honor, the 2015 Person of the Year Award, to Mark Webb, CEO of Pediatric Services at University Health System in San Antonio, Texas.
The award was presented during CMAA’s National Conference & Trade Show in Orlando on October 13.
“The criteria for Person of the Year stress leadership, professionalism and a track record for making a difference. Mark Webb has truly excelled on all of these counts” remarked CMAA’s 2014-2015 chair, Sam Sleiman, PE, CCM in presenting the award to Webb.
Webb began his career with the City of San Antonio as its Aviation Director in 1994, where he focused on the continuing expansion and growth at the airport, with particular emphasis on its 10-year, $635 million capital improvement program. He then moved to University Health System, where he was largely responsible for leading UHS’s $899 million capital improvement project.
Both of these major programs that Webb led had excellent safety records, integrated project teams, and sophisticated project control processes. Both programs are very successful and bring significant value to San Antonio residents.
“Mark challenges his team to improve continuously, and he encourages all his staff who work directly in the [CM] industry to become members of CMAA and to achieve CCM certification,” Sleiman said. “Webb has shown an outstanding commitment to expanding the CM profession by using the Standards of Practice and Certified Construction Managers. He encouraged a high level of innovation in every project he has so far led at University Health.”
Mr. Webb holds a BS in Agricultural Science from Texas A&M University, and an MS in Urban Administration from Trinity University in San Antonio. He is a native of San Antonio and an active participant in CMAA’s South Central Texas Chapter.
