A Passion for Building

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.

“Like many people who have come to Power, I came because of the company’s reputation for outstanding performance, its local focus, and its small company feel.  I want us to never lose that sense of being a family.”

Enjoying the Great Outdoors

1st Construction Job:  Working for my brothers, one owned a carpentry company and another owned a landscape / concrete company.  I learned a lot from my big brothers, from hard work to customer service.  It’s a large part of what shaped my foundation in the business.

Best career advice received:  Measure twice, cut once.  What I didn’t realize at the time is how it relates to so many situations.

Words of wisdom for a new person:  Put yourself in the other person’s shoes.  You can always gain better insight by viewing the situation from a different perspective. 

Biggest lesson learned and why:  Do the right thing…enough said.

Best thing about living in Chicago:  There so many different neighborhoods and parts of the city to enjoy and each has their own unique vibe including the people, food and architecture.
