Sevan Celebrates Grand Opening of New Office in Houston

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. (Thursday, January 26, 2023)—Sevan Multi-Site Solutions, Inc. (Sevan) opened a new office in Houston, Texas to further expand and support the organization’s operations.

Sevan, a global leader in innovative program management for clients with multiple sites, is headquartered in Downers Grove, Illinois near Chicago and has a European office in the United Kingdom. The new Houston office was established to better serve clients and partners in the region, create a hub for Sevan’s area team members, advance career development opportunities and increase teamwork and collaboration.

The office primarily houses Sevan’s Architecture & Engineering and Survey & Facility Assessments team near the Houston Metro area. However, the new space is set up to fully support all teams across Sevan including Program Management, Real Estate & Development Services, Technology & Data Analytics, Construction Services and various support departments.

“Opening our new office in Houston is a tremendous milestone for Sevan,” said Jim Evans, Founder and CEO of Sevan. “This expansion, along with establishing a new scholarship with Prairie View A&M University, is a fresh reminder of our footprint across the multi-site industry and commitment to providing excellence for our clients and team members everywhere.”

Sevan has many clients and dozens of team members located around Houston, and throughout Texas and the Southwest. Sevan is a strategic and agile partner in putting capital to work via powerful, data driven approaches to create speed and scale while ensuring quality and efficiency.

“We are thrilled to establish this physical presence in Houston,” said Nick Peters, Senior Vice President of Operations at Sevan. “It will enable our growth across multiple lines of business, facilitate career development and further strengthen our wonderful relationships with local universities.”

To further academic initiatives in the area, The Sevan Charitable Foundation created a scholarship in partnership with Prairie View A&M University to be given annually in honor of Lieutenant General (LTG) Calvin Waller. Along with being a distinguished Prairie View alum, LTG Waller spent 32 years in the United States Army and served in the Vietnam War, holding a variety of staff and command positions including the Deputy Commander-in-Chief for military operations during the Persian Gulf War. Waller is buried at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia.

“The Sevan Charitable Foundation’s scholarship, in honor of Lieutenant General Calvin Waller, will serve as a great incentive for our students to continue their successes in the classroom,” said Dr. Bruce Bockhorn, Director of Construction Science at Prairie View A&M University. “Recipients of the scholarship are reminded of LTG Waller’s legacy and Prairie View A&M’s rich history as a Historically Black College or University (HBCU)—we are excited for the opportunity!”
