Founded in 2007, Team Ghilotti Inc. (TGI) was established on a single philosophy: that a company is only as good as its employees. Since day one, that simple idea has been the driving force behind the way we do business, inside and out.
Team Ghilotti brings generations of local, family construction legacy together with top performing specialists to expertly inform, execute, and evolve all of our service areas.
Teamwork is the foundation of our success amongst our experienced staff and in serving our client partners on concrete, paving, grading, underground utilities, and emergency response jobs.
With a name synonymous with construction excellence and experience, our story begins with our late founder and third generation construction worker, Glen Ghilotti. Glen was raised in the trenches and established an enviable reputation as a virtuoso out in the field with unbeatable standards. Throughout his 30 year career at Maggiora & Ghilotti – the general engineering contractor firm his father Henry J. “Babe” Ghilotti, co-founded – Glen developed the passion and ability to master any piece of equipment or project, and jumped at the call of duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As a talented leader, Glen earned wide respect as someone who cared deeply about the product and the people, which always came first.
In Glen’s very same footsteps, Kevin was raised working summers in the field at Maggiora & Ghilotti. There he learned tools of the trade and a community-first ethos of leadership built on mentorship, honesty, and trust working alongside Glen. After helping Maggiora & Ghilotti grow to annual revenue of $25 million, Glen set his sights to establish the next generation of Ghilotti family entrepreneurship with Kevin as his partner.
In 2007, Team Ghilotti Inc. was formally established in Petaluma, California. With Kevin and Glen’s daughter, Jennifer, joining the leadership team, TGI continues to grow year over year, with our thumbprint on small and large projects throughout Northern California. True to our mission and philosophy, TGI is actively involved in events and charitable giving in Petaluma and throughout Sonoma County.
Get it Done Right –Glen’s Legacy
In 2018, the company suffered a great loss with the sudden passing of Glen Ghilotti. As the maker and master of the “no scream team” – a company saying that underscores our amazing internal culture – Glen’s influence leaves an indelible mark in the hearts and minds of our staff.
Those that knew Glen remember him as a happy and perpetual optimist; he was a fearless visionary that could make the impossible happen. Glen’s authentic passion for construction work, the people, and the equipment he loved to operate was the fuel behind his forward momentum to be bigger, better, and braver. For Glen, there was no shortcut to quality, no obstacle that couldn’t be tackled, no problem that couldn’t be solved. His mantra of “get it done right the first time” was true when it came to his work, and when it came to helping a friend, employee, or responding to the needs of the community. He was a mentor to many, with a philosophy of leadership which meant that the door swings both ways. You could come to Glen for anything, and he’d always listen.
Glen was compassionate and thoughtful beyond measure. His incredible work ethic, integrity, resilience, and legendary tales of kindness remain at the core of Team Ghilotti’s mission, philosophy, and operations – yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
