The construction company that built the world’s tallest skyscraper has resumed operations.
The company, the world-famous Skyscraper Group, said Wednesday that its new chairman, James H. Gorman Jr., had been named chairman.
Gorman, who has been the company’s chairman for the past three years, was hired by the company as a director of construction, construction management and operations.
He previously served as vice chairman and chief operating officer.
In a statement, Gorman said he hoped the company “will return to its former glory as a leader in high-quality, sustainable construction projects and an institution that encourages innovative thinking and the highest standards of ethical conduct.”
Skyscraper has been at the center of an international firestorm since its construction in 2001.
The company’s management has been accused of using the firm as a front for prostitution and corruption.
A number of high-profile people have come forward with allegations of corruption in the construction of the $2.6 billion tower.
