Marking its growth in a thriving construction market, Phoenix-based Stevens-Leinweber Construction (SLC) – one of the Valley’s most active ground-up and tenant improvement contractors – has expanded its leadership team with the addition of industry veteran Nick Litwiller.

Litwiller will oversee the management of key improvement initiatives and operations for SLC’s thriving project pipeline, which spans millions of square feet of office, industrial, retail and amenity space in metro Phoenix’s hottest growth markets and within many of its most prominent developments.

Prior to joining SLC, Litwiller served as Director of Real Estate for Iowa-based SHYFT Collective, where as head of the Arizona office he was responsible for managing the company’s Southwest project portfolio. This included leading the development, amenity operations and relocation of a new 450,000-square-foot regional headquarters for Nationwide Insurance in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Litwiller has also served in roles including Senior Project Manager and Planner, Investment Asset Analyst, Commercial Mortgage Analyst and Leasing Agent for several notable, Midwest-based commercial real estate entities.

Within the industry, Litwiller enjoys a network of strong and mutually respectful relationships with owners, landlords, brokers, vendors and institutional and corporate real estate tenants.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Iowa Tippie College of Business, is a licensed Arizona Real Estate Salesperson and a designated Project Management Professional (PMP) from the Project Management Institute.
