Our People

 

Paul Hanlon

CEO & President

I’ve been in the exhibit and event industry for over 35 years, creating and expanding two multi-million-dollar companies in the process. A true entrepreneur, I recognized that a synergy existed between high-end architectural millwork and exhibits and events, with both utilizing skilled woodworkers to manufacture quality products. With this in mind, I acquired Continental Millwork in June 2009 and have never looked back. Continental has succeeded on its own right without any reliance on the exhibits and events side of the business. And with a shop populated by the latest hi-tech equipment, it has gone on to produce beautiful craftsmanship for satisfied clients across the country.

Outside of the office, I focus my endless energy on charitable endeavors, most notably as a motivational speaker for at-risk kids. Due to my tireless work in supporting those in need of assistance—both in Massachusetts and in my winter home in Florida—I was awarded the President Bush Thousand Points of Light Award in 2002.

When asked why I winter in the Sunshine State, my answer is always the same; “I’m done with shoveling!”

 

Glen Martin

Vice President

My career in architectural millwork began over 40 years ago. Growing-up, I always had a passion for building and problem solving. I started my career path at a young age at Ralph Iaccarino and Sons. There I continued to grow and gain knowledge of the industry. Four decades later, my hard work and focus has paid off and I hold the position of Vice President of a multi-million-dollar company.

My day-to-day duties include daily contact with the estimating, engineering, and project management teams, overseeing production in the shop, as well as controlling most of the purchasing and pricing. With all these moving parts, what is most valuable to me is that we work as a team. If one person or department needs help, we are all willing to pitch-in and help each other succeed. We are very proactive with all our projects and strive to produce premium quality craftmanship. Most important of all is our commitment to building and maintaining strong communication lines between Continental and the client. I take a lot of pride in all the work that we do.

Outside the office, my most rewarding accomplishment has been raising two beautiful and talented daughters with my wife of 45 years. We now have five amazing grandchildren whom we are watching grow and develop into fine young adults. We all enjoy family vacations together every summer.

One thing is for sure; I am still working hard and my work ethics have never changed! Through honesty, commitment and co-operation we get the job done and on time.

Henry Geddes

Chief Estimator

Having spent 34 years in the industry, architectural millwork is my life’s work. As Chief Estimator, I assume responsibility for the creation of estimates, assuring accurate material takeoff and pricing, and keeping bid date deadlines. To facilitate the process, I assign responsibilities to the team before reviewing projects, plans, and specifications to confirm the complete scope. In this dynamic, I am fortunate to be working with a great group of professionals, which allows us to focus our combined energies on the product’s quality and design. Looking forward, as we continue to innovate and provide accurate bids, the team as a whole is driven to maintaining strong relationships with existing clients, while expanding our customer base.

Outside work, I enjoy spending time with my family and travelling. And as a son of Scotland, I am a committed fan of the Glasgow Rangers.

John Lasell

Engineering Manager

I have been in the industry for 23 years, and have always been involved in millwork engineering. But my ambition began before I entered the workplace. I have always loved drawing, and my father was a fabricator so I grew up in this world, working in his shop as a kid and going out to installs. It’s in my lifeblood.

I am responsible for making sure everything is scheduled on time, but I also get involved in project management, field and laser template sites, and attending site meetings. At times, I am out of the office meeting with contractors, keeping my finger on the pulse in all areas to uphold the quality we all strive to uphold.

Beyond work, my priorities are my two daughters and my family. I am lucky really; my work is the key to supporting my family, and in that way it’s a great fit. A funny fact, I am surrounded by females: my wife, two daughters, a 125lb German Shepherd, and a cat named Kitty. When I have free time, I love my motorcycles, riding as well as keeping them polished and clean.

Steve Carlson

Senior Project Manager

Millwork has been in my blood since a young age. It all began when I aced all my drafting classes at school, and my father said, “you’re going to go to college and study this.” This seminal piece of advice set the course of my life, and when I graduated from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 1981, I returned to Massachusetts to begin my career at Iaccarino & Son in Boylston, MA.

I remained at Iaccarino for the next 30 years, working under the leadership of Glen Martin. When the firm closed in 2013, Glen moved over to Continental Woodcraft and took some of his team with him, and I was one of those individuals selected. In doing so, Glen ensured he was supported by a team that not only had extensive experience in the industry, but had worked successfully together in the past and had gelled in the process. By providing this setup to the BlueHive Group, Glen could guarantee that Continental Woodcraft wood be a success.

On a day-to-day basis, I oversee projects from submissions through approvals and fabrication. I also manage a team of three project managers. However, what I enjoy most is the detail involved in the approval process, something that is ultimately reflected in the quality of work produced at Continental.

When not in the office, I often to be found on Cape Cod where I am enjoying a beautiful property left to the family by my grandparents. I am also active in the Italian Club and American Legion, overseeing pitch leagues, horseshoe leagues and other social activities.

Mike Jensen

Production Manager

Before coming to Continental, I worked in the hospitality industry, but eleven years ago I was offered an opportunity in custom millwork and accepting it was one of the best decisions I ever made. Today, I am the shop foreman, working on everything from inventory, to labor management, to engineering breakdown and workload management. People comment that my memory is impeccable as I believe in the value of organization and responsibility. Continental is an environment where you can learn and work your way up the ladder, allowing those with a skillset and a solid mentality to grow and mature in the job.

Outside work, I am the archetypal outdoors type. I love anything to do with the water and the ocean, so much so that I am a Miami Dolphins fan! It also follows that I am a huge fan of reggae and Caribbean music, but nothing compares to the love I have for my wife and son. They mean the world to me, and we look forward to growing our family.
