Baffer adds operations and project management to the Senior Vice President role at the Delray Beach company

Kaufman Lynn Construction, a full-service construction manager and general contractor company based in Delray Beach, recently hired Ben Baffer to serve on its Leadership Team as Senior Vice President. With 34 years of experience in the building industry, Baffer is a seasoned operations and project management expert who has worked with mid to large-size general contractors across multiple markets and sectors. Baffer’s broad range of experience includes project management, construction and budget planning, directing design teams, risk management, contract negotiations and working with owners and developers in the pre-construction phases of projects.

“Ben is rejoining our firm at an exciting time as we continue to grow at a robust rate with new and exciting projects throughout the region,” Michael Kaufman says, founder and CEO of Kaufman Lynn Construction. “His extensive operations and management experience paired with the strong relationships he’s built throughout the South Florida community will truly complement our team.”

Baffer returns to Kaufman Lynn Construction where he was part of the firm for more than 11 years, starting as a Senior Project Manager and later promoted to Vice President of Operations. He left the company in 2019 for his most recent role as Senior Vice President of Operations at Plaza Construction Company in Miami, where he spearheaded notable projects in hospitality, entertainment and Class A office buildings. Earlier in his career, Baffer held various Project Management positions at companies based in Florida and Washington, DC. He is also regarded as one of the region’s foremost experts in historical restoration projects.

“I’m thrilled to be returning to Kaufman Lynn Construction in this new leadership role,” Baffer says. “I look forward to collaborating with such a talented team of building professionals, and it’s great to be back in the Delray Beach community.”

Baffer received a bachelor’s degree from Virginia Tech and a master’s degree from the University of Florida, both in Building Construction. He is heavily involved in the Delray Beach community, where he has resided with his family for the past 21 years, currently serving as the Chairman of the City of Delray Beach Historic Preservation Board.
