The Construction Industry Alliance for Suicide Prevention announced it has hired Sonya Bohmann as executive director. Bohmann will lead the next phase of CIASP’s growth and organizational development to fulfill CIASP’s mission to save lives by eliminating suicide in the construction industry.

Bohmann will oversee implementation of the CIASP strategic and business plan, as well as the development and execution of comprehensive annual plans.

She will also participate in future strategic planning and develop strategies that align with CIASP’s mission, vision, values, beliefs, and goals.

“The construction industry’s most valuable resource is our hard-working, dedicated, skilled workforce,” said Greg Sizemore, 2023 chair of CIASP and vice president of health, safety, environment and workforce development at Associated Builders and Contractors. “Sonya brings to CIASP the leadership experience and skill set to strengthen the mindset amongst every construction worker that every suicide is preventable. She will be instrumental in ensuring CIASP continues to equip and empower industry leaders and employees with the tools and resources they need to recognize the risk factors and create a zero-suicide construction industry.”

Bohmann has served in leadership, strategic and operational roles with BrandPoint Services since 2003, most recently serving as the general contractor’s executive vice president of culture. Bohmann also serves as the Board Chair and advocacy chair of the Greater Philadelphia Chapter of The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and an executive board member of both the Delaware County Suicide Prevention Task Force and the TKD Foundation.
