Member Spotlight: Beth Harris, CPSM


Beth Harris has been selected as the February Member of the Month for her hard work on the Owner’s Roundtable joint program last month with CMAA, as well as for facilitating the Chapter’s current CPSM Study Group.

SMPS is my home base. As a business developer, I attend many different associations and conferences, locally, regionally and nationally. It’s always exciting to run into one of my SMPS peers at a SAME or DBIA conference. SMPS feels like home, it’s where we go to get educated on the latest trends and research; it’s where we are mentored by some of the best in our industry, it’s where we connect with other business development and marketing professionals; it’s where ideas are freely shared and where there is an atmosphere of camaraderie and acceptance. SMPS is my family in the A/E/C industry, and I feel most fortunate to be a part of such a vital organization.

Beth is the Director of Business Development at Hermosa Construction Group, a SBA certified 8(a) DBE/MBE construction management/general contractor. Hermosa was founded in 2001, as a boutique program management firm, with focus on Outpatient Medical Centers. Today, the firm has grown into a full service construction management and general contracting firm with a proven track record of success throughout the Southeast. Vertical markets include Federal Construction (with focus on Design/Build), Healthcare and General Commercial Construction.
