GILLIAN HALEY-MEIERBACHTOL, MRED
Vice President, Halley Construction
Gillian spent her summers as a kid tagging along with her dad Tom Haley, second generation co-owner of Haley Construction, to job-sites. She explored the footings and climbed the framing of what would become beautiful homes and new commercial buildings all over the Prescott area.
By 12 she was doing odd jobs in the office, and by 18, she was ready to see the world. After living in many different towns and big cities, her roots and the allure of the wonderful quality of life in Prescott brought her home to join the family business. She began with Haley Construction in 2008 after completing her master’s in real estate development from Arizona State University and returning from a finance position with a corporate law firm in London, England.
While working on the restoration of the Elks Opera House Theater in 2010, alongside Allan Crary who was the project manager, and her step-brother, she and Allan found common interest in owning the company and formed a deep trust that ultimately led to becoming business partners in 2014 when they became the third generation owners of Haley Construction.
As vice president, Gillian heads up business development including building relationships, community outreach, marketing, strategic business planning, and helping to shape future company development goals. She is familiar with real estate development principles such as market analysis, land planning and entitlements, design fundamentals and construction.
Gillian’s passion for design led her to take a leave from the company and complete an architectural interior design program in 2017. Her background in interior design is a bonus to Haley’s clients. She offers the ability to assist owners in the finish selection process if needed.
In 2018, with support from the entire Haley Team, she started her own independent interior design firm and is currently working with a number of wonderful clients.
While completing the interior design program, she and her husband, Matt Meierbachtol, learned they would be adding a new addition to the family. In July 2017 they welcomed their first child, Addison Haley Meierbachtol, and when not working, she and Matt can be found enjoying time and new adventures with Addison.
