McCarthy has promoted Amanda Corbet to Senior Manager of Contracts and Community Outreach for its Southern California Division. Corbet will serve as a key team member supporting client relationships and McCarthy’s commitment to diversity through work with Disabled Veterans, Small, Minority and Women Business Enterprises (MWBE).

Corbet began her career with McCarthy over 10 years ago, first assisting in the field as a Project Engineer and later becoming a Project Manager overseeing construction operations. Corbet has background in managing small- and large-scale projects in an array of areas including education, healthcare, research laboratories, and parking such as the San Diego County Administrative Center Waterfront Park.

In her new role, Corbet expand our relationships with small business and DVBE/MWBE clients that will support McCarthy’s commitment to establishing a diverse network of industry partners. She will also lead community outreach efforts for Southern California and look to establish strong relationships and provide educational opportunities for subcontractors and community leaders in the area. In addition to these external efforts, Corbet will continue her role of integrating efficient processes within McCarthy that will elevate the company’s client and project communications.
