Key Management Bios

The Meehan Group's staff brings a broad range of facilities-related backgrounds to each relocation project we undertake. Our teams provide an unparalleled level of integrity and dedication to client advocacy; they are trained to implement our sophisticated methods and procedures on every assignment we are awarded.

We invite you to read about the six members of our senior management team.

Tracey Meehan, Principal

Tracey MeehanAfter earning her Bachelor's Degree from Assumption College, Tracey Frank was hired by Meehan Relocations Inc. as an Assistant Project Manager. So thoroughly and rapidly did she expand her skills and knowledge of the business that, within one year, she was promoted to the position of Project Manager, and assigned the exclusive management of all Goldman, Sachs & Company projects. From 1988 to 1991, she was responsible for all on-site project implementation encompassing the entire retro-fit and re-stacking of over 1,000,000 square feet of office space within Goldman, Sachs' 85 Broad Street location. Her exemplary performance was rewarded with a promotion to a vice presidency in 1990.

Tracey's organizational skills, work ethic and dedication to excellence are unequalled in the industry, as evidenced by her implementation of many complex projects for such clients as CS First Boston Corporation (1,800,000 square feet), Avon Products, Inc. (400,000 sq. ft.), Swiss Bank Corporation (700,000 sq. ft.) and numerous others.

In 1994, Dennis Meehan assisted Tracey in establishing The Meehan Consulting Group, Inc. In 1998, Dennis and Tracey were married, and Tracey became the sole owner of the firm, while Mr. Meehan continued his role as CEO – positions they still maintain to this day.

Dennis J. Meehan, Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

Dennis Meehan

Founder

Dennis began his career in the relocation industry while serving in the U.S. Navy. Working in the Transportation and Facilities Management Office, he was able to learn all facets of local and international moving through planning and implementing major divisional facility relocations overseas and throughout the United States. Upon his return to New York in 1977, he began his career in the private sector of the moving industry as a Quality Control Director for Universal World Wide Movers. He went on to work for one of the largest commercial office movers in New York City. During his five-year tenure, he was the preferred on-site Project Supervisor for the firms' major projects. As he became more familiar with the moving industry, he recognized a need in the corporate community for assistance in coordinating, managing, and auditing the entire process.

Dennis established Meehan Relocations, Inc. in 1983 – as the sole employee of the firm. Dennis grew his firm carefully, selecting only the very best people to represent him in serving his clients. In 1994, Dennis assisted Tracey Frank (lead Project Director at Meehan Relocations) in establishing the Meehan Group, Inc. In 1998, Dennis and Tracey were married, and the new Mrs. Meehan remained the sole owner of the firm, while Dennis continued his role as CEO.

Today, nearly one hundred percent of his firm's ten million dollar annual revenue is generated through word of mouth – or simply as a result of reputation. He has consulted on many of the most substantial and prestigious relocation projects in recent New York City history. He is a frequent lecturer for many professional organizations, and he has written several articles on the subject of facility relocation management. He is also an active participant in and contributor to many national non-profit organizations.

John Avrutis, Chief Administrative Officer (CAO)

John Avrutis19 Year Tenure with Meehan

John holds a degree in Data Processing and Computer Science.  He joined the firm in 1994, bringing ten years of managerial experience in the moving and storage industry.

His career has touched all aspects in our field including warehouse and facilities operations, fine arts, commercial moving sales, project management, computer software development and maintenance as well as corporate administration.  

Currently, as Managing Director and CAO, John is instrumental in the initial setup and implementation of most of our major projects acting as executive liaison with senior management and key project personnel.  John will coordinate the key project team assuring all aspects of the relocation are covered.  He serves as a Compliance/Audit officer to ensure all aspects of both Meehan’s contract with the client as well as the movers and liquidators contracts are adhered to and achieved.  He also serves as Director of Technology; his role was pivotal in developing the firm’s proprietary The Meehan Relocation Management System Software™.  Additionally, John frequently serves as an on-site Senior Project Director for many of The Meehan Group’s major accounts.

John has developed a specialty in medical and laboratory relocations, and has managed all aspects of these type projects to include creating scope of work, all bid procedures for qualifications and retention of qualified movers and specialized and OEM vendors, preparation of inventories, overall move schedule and management of the project teams during move implementation.

Michael Isaac, Chief Operations Officer (COO)

Michael Isaac17 Year Tenure with Meehan

Mike graduated Manhattan College with a BBA in Accounting and Business Administration. He brings over 25 years' experience in the field of transportation, warehousing and relocation management to each project. His experience is extremely diverse, and is highlighted by logistic and operations expertise.

Prior to joining The Meehan Group, Mike held a Senior Project Manager position for a national move management consulting firm. During his tenure, Mike coordinated a substantial number of national facility relocations for a diversified client base. Facilities relocated under his direction included executive offices, law firms, data centers, laboratories, manufacturing plants and research and development centers, many of which were for Fortune 500 companies. Also included in this experience was a substantial relocation for Lehman Brothers in Chicago.

Mike joined The Meehan Group in 1996. His first major assignment was managing the relocation of 1,100 people into 226,000 square feet of office space for BlueCross BlueShield of North Carolina. One week following the completion of this project, our CEO received a glowing letter from the senior move coordinator for BCBS. The letter cited Mike's professional demeanor, and went on to describe a "trouble-free" move as a result of Mr. Isaac's personal involvement. Later that year, Mike coordinated a multiple-phased move for Goldman Sachs & Company in Dallas and Paine Webber in Manhattan and the feedback remained consistent. It was not long before Mike earned the position of Director of National Operations for the firm and took charge of coordinating all of the firm's national projects and, in most cases, serving as an on-site Project Manager. Accordingly, he spent the majority of his time in different cities across the United States.

Notable projects managed under his direction include a 160,000 square foot relocation for Goldman Sachs within the Sears Tower in Chicago in 2001; UBS Paine Webber migration in Phoenix in 2002; and a major relocation project encompassing 1,000,000 square feet of multiple relocations for JP Morgan-Chase in Columbus, Ohio.

Mike has since graduated to become the firm's Chief Operations Officer, principally managing projects for UBS Financial Services, Goldman Sachs, Citi, and AIG.

After graduating from Boston University in 2008, Ryan began a full-time career working at The Meehan Group.
