McCarthy Building Companies Announces New Hires

McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. (McCarthy) recently hired two new associates within the Southwest division based in Phoenix.


Stephanie Dohn, Vice President of Government Affairs – National Renewable Energy Group


With nearly 10 years of experience in government relations and advocacy for renewable energy sources, Dohn will aid McCarthy and its clients in representing renewable energy opportunities before government stakeholders.

Through her previous experience, Dohn established invaluable industry and government relationships while also working with trade partners and NGOs to bridge the gaps between stakeholders involved in the planning, development, construction and operation of renewable energy sources. Her knowledge of the regulatory processes that drive solar energy will allow Dohn to inform McCarthy’s project teams and client representatives of legislative requirements and key policymaker concerns.


“Renewable energy remains a growing topic of conversation as well as a source of hesitation for some,” said Scott Canada, executive vice president of McCarthy’s renewable energy group. “Having Steffanie advocating for our industry and educating decision makers about environmentally sustainable infrastructure will help further our goal of building renewable energy projects that provide immense value to communities and end users around the country.”


Dohn earned her bachelor's degree in political science from Lake Forest College, and her master's in social ecology from Goddard College. Early in her career, she developed a passion for environmental improvement, intertwined with the economic and governmental policies that propel or hinder expanding renewable energy infrastructure.



Ashley Hatley, Business Development Director – Education Services, Southwest Division

Hatley’s primary focus will be on serving the higher education and K-12 education sectors. In this role, she is responsible for relationship development with clients in the education sector and assisting regional leaders in identifying and pursuing new project and partnership opportunities. Additionally, she will be working with the Operations and Preconstruction departments to support McCarthy’s business development efforts with the objective of providing clients with the best services and options to deliver upon their needs and budget.


Hatley has nearly a decade of experience in business development roles with a focus on building relationships, capturing market expansion and championing operational efficiency. She is a member of The International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories (I2SL) and The International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE).

She earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of South Dakota.
