Leadership on the ground
That's the spirit of leadership at Power.
Power leaders take an active role in every project, working side-by-side in the field and the office. This hands-on leadership enables people to learn faster, empowers team members and promotes collaboration. And it provides clients real-time assurance that their project will be successful from start to finish.
Plus, with roots deep in the Chicago community and a passion for building what matters, our leaders have grown up, so to speak, in the Power Way. We believe it is this tradition of growing from within that ensures our company's stability, strength, and ability to thrive in the years ahead.
