New York, NY (September 20, 2021) – Construction management firm STO Building Group has named Rick Khan its first Chief Innovation Officer, a new role to help the company continue to find new and smarter ways to help advance the construction industry.

“Innovation is a driving force behind how we operate at STO Building Group,” says STO Building Group Executive Chairman, James Donaghy. “We created this role and brought in Rick to help us continue to foster our culture of innovation and further explore new ways of working and how we can better leverage big data to make smarter decisions that improve outcomes for us and our clients.”

Khan has spent the past 26 years in the business of helping people through innovation, with the last 16 years dedicated to the construction industry. He is an internationally recognized AEC industry thought leader whose background includes innovation strategy, design thinking, architectural design, computer graphics, graphic design, talent development, and communications. He began his career working for his father in the trades as a pipefitter foreman, where the mindset of working safer and smarter, not harder, sparked his passion for innovation. After attaining his architecture degree, he developed new ways of visualizing architectural design to key project stakeholders. He then moved into the world of computer graphic industry as a technical producer, serving the gaming and film markets. This experience led him back to construction to find new ways of improving the lives of frontline workers.

“We are incredibly excited to welcome Rick to our team,” says Greg Dunkle, STO Building Group Chief Administration Officer. “We are constantly exploring new technologies, ideas, and partnerships, and Rick’s oversight will certainly help us strategize those ideas in a way that challenges norms and pushes the envelope of how our industry operates.”

Khan is based in the New York City headquarters of the STO Building Group family of companies.
