Enclos announced the promotion of directors of preconstruction Justin Russell and Justin Yen to vice presidents. In their new roles, Russell will oversee preconstruction activities for the western region along with Yen, who will manage opportunities to evolve the company’s global sourcing delivery options.

“We are excited to have two talented and hard-working individuals lead our preconstruction efforts in the west region,” says Steve Danke, executive vice president of preconstruction for Enclos. “Their disciplined approaches to sales and global sourcing position them to add tremendous value to any owner or general contractor’s project team.”

Russell has more than 15 years of experience in the glazing industry and holds a Bachelor of Science in construction management. Russell trained under his father and grandfather in their family business from an early age. There he held a multitude of operational positions that set the platform for his current role as the preconstruction lead on some of Enclos’ most recognizable projects, including the Chase Arena and Office Towers in San Francisco. Russell is a LEED accredited professional and has managed projects ranging from hotels, residential, transportation, offices and healthcare across the West Coast and Hawaii. He will oversee preconstruction efforts for the Western region.

Yen has more than 17 years of experience in the glazing industry since completing a Bachelor of Arts in architecture from the University of California – Berkeley.  He spent the first five years of his professional career working as a project manager for several notable facades in the Los Angeles and San Francisco regions. Yen’s work and successes led to his promotion to senior project manager. In 2012, Yen moved over to preconstruction at Enclos. He worked on several significant projects such as Park Lane Ala Moana in Honolulu, Pacific Gate in San Diego, and the most recent Oceanwide Plaza in Los Angeles. Yen is an associate AIA with a technical understanding of materials that make him a great asset to projects with custom building enclosures, according to the announcement. Most recently, Yen has become a key player and direct liaison for global procurement and will continue to lead these efforts in his new role.
