Our Journey of Reinvention
Presenter: Mark Stebbins
Chairman and CEO, PROCON
Huddleston Hall, Durham, NH
Time: 8:00AM – 10:00AM
Mark Stebbins is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of PROCON and partner in XSS Hotels. Mark is the third generation to lead Procon, the family business in its 81-year existence. When Mark took the leadership position at PROCON, the company performed construction services only and had sales of less than $4 Million. He and John Samenfeld, President, transformed the company into the largest design and construction company in the Northeast, with 60 design and engineering professionals and 140 construction professionals.
Stebbins is a managing partner in one of the largest hotel development companies in the Northeast, XSS Hotels, with a pipeline of over 20 projects. Mark Stebbins formed Schleicher & Stebbins Hotels with Mark Schleicher in 1995. In 2008, S&S Hotels teamed up with Leo Xarras, hospitality industry veteran to develop hotels under the XSS Hotels platform. Stebbins currently serves as President of The Marriott Residence Inn Advisory Board.
PROCON’s notable projects include Portwalk Place in Portsmouth, Renaissance and Hilton Garden Inn at Patriot Place in Foxborough, Madbury Commons at UNH and eight Brightview Senior Living Communities throughout the Northeast.
Mark will talk about how through constant reinvention of what was a $2-million-dollar local family owned construction company, he and his team built it into what is now a large design and construction management company that does over $200 million dollars of business with projects from Maine to as far South as Virginia along with founding one of the largest Hotel Development Companies in the US.
Mark graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in Economics and worked as a loan officer for the Chase Manhattan Bank after graduation.
Stebbins and PROCON are dedicated to a long history of giving back to the community in which employees live and work. They generously donate time and money to charities like Child and Family Services, United Way, and the YMCA.
