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.”

At home outside

With Power since: 1987

Project you’re most proud of and why?: 2 East Erie. Both the budget and schedule were big struggles in an overheated economy, but we never compromised our commitment to quality or reduced our high level of service.

Words of wisdom for a new person in the business: This is a big industry with many different opportunities. It is also a challenging one, especially if you value a high service orientation like we do. If you follow the path that you are most passionate about, and give it your all, you will most likely find the most fulfillment and have the most success—especially when times are tough.

Best view of the skyline?: Running north on the jogging path as you come around the Shedd.

Items on your bucket list i.e. place to visit, thing to do, etc.: Travel across Canada and visit Alaska.
