Welcome Brett Dolan, Chief Human Resources Officer

We welcome Brett Dolan, SPHR to W.E. O’Neil as Chief Human Resources Officer.

After nearly 100 years of steady growth and topping $1 billion annual revenue, W.E. O’Neil created the new role of CHRO to enhance continuity of service to their employee-owners as we continue to grow across 12 offices in six states.

As CHRO, Brett oversees all human resources functions, including developing and implementing HR policies and procedures, supporting strategic operational objectives, employee relations, employee benefits and wellness, employee development and succession planning, compliance, total compensation, and recruiting and retention.

Brett reports to Chief Operating Officer John Finn, who is expected to take over the role of CEO in 2025 during our 100th anniversary.


Brett Dolan brings to W.E. O’Neil extensive knowledge in human resources in the construction industry, specifically large national HR departments which deliver services at a unified and elevated level. Brett is particularly skilled in growing a more cohesive department, coming most recently from a family-owned company of similar size. We look forward to leveraging his knowledge and we will all be better for Brett joining our company.

John Finn


With 22 years of experience in human resources in the construction industry, Brett leads through collaboration, consensus building, and attentive employee relations. He brings current methods and creative approaches to the traditional tasks of HR while collaborating with all stakeholders to improve efficiency and accuracy in policies, processes, and compliance while also working to enhance employee experience.

W.E. O’Neil’s family values and balance of pragmatism and caring was a perfect fit for me. I look forward to contributing to the enhancement of W.E. O’Neil’s existing reputation for creating an optimal employee experience, leading to exceptional results for our clients, industry, and community partners.
