Inspiring Hiring | Sean McCreanor at Assignar

In part one of my conversation with Sean McCreanor, the co-founder and CEO of Assignar, he talked about his project management solution specially tailored for the construction industry.

In this second part of our conversation, Sean discusses some of the unique problems he had early on, selling to companies that were still using computers like glorified calculators. He also offers some thoughts on how developing the right hiring technique helped lay the groundwork for their current success.

Sean McCreanor is the CEO and Co-Founder of Assignar, a cloud-based construction operations company. He is a technologist at heart and is passionate about helping construction implement & leverage technology.

Sean started his career in IT in the late 90s. After starting a specialist IT firm with some colleagues and then successfully exiting that business in 2005, Sean went on to co-found (and still owns) a specialty civil & rail sub-contracting business that now has over 80 pieces of heavy equipment and over 250 workers across 4 states. 

After an exhaustive search for an operations platform in 2014, Sean McCreanor developed Assignar for his railway subcontracting business with co-founder Marko Tomic.
