H. Dennis Hill

Senior Vice President

Since joining the firm in 2002, Dennis has completely transformed BEAR Construction Company’s role as a strategic advisor and partner to clients. Throughout Dennis’s 40+ year career he has worked for Architecture, Development, Subcontracting and General Contracting firms which gives him a well-rounded insight into all aspects of the industry. Through his leadership of the preconstruction & estimating team, Dennis transformed the way BEAR predicts costs and labor upfront in order to see the entire life cycle of a project from start to finish before ever beginning the work. This degree of accuracy allows BEAR to find efficiencies within the work and build in cost and schedule savings for BEAR’s clients. Dennis is an integral part of BEAR’s executive leadership team, providing seasoned and steady leadership across all segments of the company’s operations. Dennis was a driving force behind BEAR’s involvement at the Old Chicago Post Office, the hugely successful renovation of the iconic structure that anchors Chicago’s entrance from the west. Dennis holds a degree in Applied Science from the College of DuPage and is ASPE Certified. Dennis is a member of the Chicago Boys & Girls Club Advisory Committee, a Choose DuPage Board Member and is actively involved with the BEAR Foundation. He has personally helped raise millions of dollars for many of the charities that BEAR supports.
