Donohoe Announces New Leadership


As The Donohoe Companies, Inc. implements its long-range strategic planning for the continued growth and success of the Company, it has announced the following organizational changes for 2018:

Christopher A. Bruch has been named Chief Executive Officer and President of The Donohoe Companies. Chris is in his 30th year at Donohoe, having started as a Project Engineer with Donohoe Construction, then working his way up through four of the Company’s five operating divisions.

Robert B. Donohoe, Sr. steps down as CEO after nearly 40 years at Donohoe. Bob will continue to be involved in the Company as Chairman of its Board of Directors.

Eric Maggio succeeds Gerard M. Goeke as Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of The Donohoe Companies. Eric joined Donohoe in 2015, bringing with him 30 years of real estate finance experience. Gerard has retired after 32 outstanding years of service to the Company and will continue to serve on its Board of Directors.

Robert B. Donohoe, Jr. has been promoted to Senior Vice President and Chief Investment Officer of The Donohoe Companies. Bob, in his 12th year with the Company, has been involved in nearly $1 billion of real estate development, acquisition and financing activity.

“Earlier this decade, Donohoe began its transition from the fourth to the fifth generation of leadership over the Company’s 134-year history, “ said Bob Donohoe, Sr.  “As Donohoe evolves, this new generation of leaders is charged to continue to carry out our values of integrity and vision.  Chris is the second head of the Company to be named outside of the family; he is a proven, dedicated leader who has previously served as President of Donohoe Hospitality and President and COO of The Donohoe Companies. I am confident that Chris, Eric, Bob Jr., and our seasoned corporate team will promote the growth and success of the Company.”

Tracy Caswell has also been hired as Vice President and Treasurer of The Donohoe Companies. Tracy joined Donohoe in 2017 having previously worked for Carr Properties and Madison Marquette.
