Caspers will oversee the firm's New York City office as well as lead several business opportunities in key market sectors across the country.
"We are very excited to have Mark join our team," said Louis P. Ciminelli, Chairman & CEO of LPCiminelli. "He has managed more than $23 billion in construction over the course of his career, and is known for delivering some of the very largest and most complicated projects in the country. We feel his skill set will help us tremendously as we continue to tackle bigger projects and expand our geographic footprint."
Caspers began his career in 1982 at Perini. As his skills grew, so did his role in the company, as he worked in several positions both in the field and office. He began as a general foreman, and was promoted to superintendent, general superintendent, vice president and senior vice president of field operations.
At the end of his tenure with now Tutor Perini Corp., Caspers served as executive vice president and CEO of the Buildings Group where he oversaw five operating entities – James A.

"Louis Ciminelli is very similar in that regard and it was clear to me the DNA of a builder runs throughout the company, which made it the perfect fit for me. I believe that mentality is the key to success on a project whether it's a $5 million or $500 million job."
