Lloyd Silberstein

Vice President and Executive Director, Capital Construction and Facilities Management

Lloyd Silberstein was appointed vice president and executive director for capital construction and facilities management services in January 2013.  This is a new position at the university, consolidating responsibility for managing all of USC’s building and infrastructure at the University Park and Health Sciences campuses, and reflecting plans for the most extensive growth in USC history. He oversees an internal staff of 500 responsible for planning, design and construction of several billion in new capital improvements and renovations, as well as operations and maintenance of 300 existing buildings on 240 acres of grounds and services.

Lloyd joined USC with three decades of experience leading several of the nation’s largest construction programs. He has been responsible for constructing a wide variety of facilities in more than 25 cities, 12 states, South America, Asia and the Middle East. Those projects range from historic restorations of city halls for Los Angeles and Beverly Hills; studios and performing arts venues for Warner Brothers, Capital Cities/ABC, and the Hollywood Bowl; to banking, office and hotel developments in Singapore, Mexico City, Hong Kong and Taipei.

Educational facilities for university, college and K-12 institutions throughout California have been his focus for much of the last 15 years. Most recently, he served as senior vice president for URS and Director of BuildLACCD, leading the team of companies responsible for delivering the $6.0 billion program for 300 new and renovated facilities at nine separately accredited college campuses. He was credited with successfully reorganizing and instilling confidence and trust in the massive building program, and working closely with the Board, faculty and administration to assess the most appropriate use of remaining funds during a period of dramatic state budget cuts.

Prior to that he served as senior vice president of Parsons where he headed operations in the western US. Those duties included overseeing the company’s work on the $27 billion Los Angeles Unified School District building program as well as seven other K-12 districts and 70 other college districts in California.

Earlier in his career, he was responsible for several hundred million of new facilities and infrastructure work that initiated the 20 year master plan for the University of California at Los Angeles. Originally from New York, he came to Los Angeles in 1990 and joined Lehrer McGovern Bovis where he went on to become senior vice president of operations for the west coast.

Lloyd received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida, College of Architecture, School of Building Construction; and subsequently studied for an MBA at the University of Houston. He is a licensed general contractor and sits on the board of several organizations.
