Shannon Testa

Vice President of Operations, Seattle

Shannon loves challenging projects, building great teams, and having fun along the way. “I’ve been fascinated with buildings since I was very little and always knew that this is what I wanted to do,” she says of her career.

As vice president of operations in Lewis’ Washington division, Shannon promotes operational excellence in Washington and supports the continued growth of the company’s commercial market sector as well as the company’s self-perform subsidiary, Crutcher Structures.

Since joining Lewis’ Seattle office in 2007, she’s played a major role in delivering Lewis’ marquee commercial projects, including high-rise office, residential and hospitality projects that have reshaped the city’s skyline. Starting in 2014, she led construction of the Rainier Square Redevelopment, shepherding the project from its initial design to a first-of-its-kind “SpeedCore” structure in what is now among the city’s most recognizable buildings.

Outside of work, Shannon enjoys traveling with her husband and son.
