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.
