“We succeed where our passions lie.” An avid believer in this adage and as President from 1990 to 2019, and current Chairman, Paul leads the company in just this way. He is passionate about living the basic fundamentals of the human spirit – integrity, honesty and patience. He’s equally passionate about carrying these qualities throughout our corporate culture, and you see it in the steady growth of our project type, quality and variety. Clients trust him with their most challenging projects, knowing they’re in good hands. Humbling as that compliment is to him, Paul is inspired by leading by example for the rest of the firm. It’s his passion, pure and simple. He’s had plenty of opportunities to lead by example outside of the office as well with four children and nine grandchildren.
