Timothy O'Brien, son of company founder Eddie O'Brien, serves as President of O'Brien Construction. Tim, who holds a Bachelor of Science in Construction Engineering, began working for the company in 1976 as a laborer and carpenter. Sweeping floors, doing jobsite cleanup, and swinging a hammer were regular parts of Tim's day during those early years. As he applied himself, Tim worked his way up through the company, operating in the roles of Estimator, Project Manager and Vice President before becoming O'Brien Construction's President in 1995.

Registered as both a Professional Engineer and Licensed Builder in the State of Michigan, Tim's commitment to excellence, integrity, and an unwavering work ethic sets the standard for the entire O'Brien Team. His first-hand experience in all facets of construction and extensive knowledge of the industry have stimulated record growth and success for O'Brien Construction, even amidst an unstable economy. Under his leadership, the firm serves a historically large and varied list of clients while maintaining our commitment to quality relationships built on mutual trust and respect. Committed to giving back, Tim fosters an atmosphere which encourages the entire O'Brien Construction team to enhance the quality of our communities, both in the field and in daily life.
