Skepton Construction Announces Promotion of Robert Perose to President and Chief Operating Officer

Appointment Positions Construction Company for Next Phase of Growth

Lehigh Valley, PA — Skepton Construction Inc., a commercial construction company with decades of experience specializing in responsible commercial construction by providing clients with a true partnership on general construction, construction management and design-build projects, today announced the promotion of Robert (Bob) Perose to President and Chief Operating Officer. Perose was a key member of the company’s leadership team after founder Franklin E. Skepton passed away a few years ago and played a critical role in successfully leading the company through one of the worst economic times.

Perose is taking on Kevin Frantz’s previous role. Frantz will be leading the company in his new role of Chief Executive Officer.

In his new role as the company’s President and Chief Operating Officer Perose will be responsible for the overall management of the day-to-day operations of the business.


“Bob will be actively involved on every job, every day from estimating to purchasing to close up. This is not typical in our industry, but it’s a key ingredient in the successful operation and growth of our business. It allows us to keep a pulse on what’s happening,” said Frantz, Skepton Construction’s Chief Executive Officer.


Bob Perose has over 20 years of commercial construction industry experience in a variety of roles including estimating, project management and ownership.

Although his expertise spans many areas of commercial construction, Robert is well known for his innate ability to prepare detailed project cost estimates for Owners and Architects.

Robert has managed projects across many industries, specializing in institutional, industrial and commercial construction throughout Eastern Pennsylvania.


“Skepton’s rich tradition in public competitive-bid work has allowed for our company’s progression into private commercial work – a successful transition thanks to our unwavering dedication to meeting schedules and tight budgets. We want to continue to expand our work in the private sector to continue to deliver tremendous value to owners. This is an area that we see a lot of opportunity in because of our strong background with public competitive-bid projects,” said Perose.
