Welcome to Webcor. Here are some personal snapshots of us, sharing our beliefs and stories that helped shape us as individuals and leaders of Webcor today. We welcome you to contact us and start a conversation for any reason.


Quote of Choice

“Getting smart people with inventive ideas in the same room is still the best recipe for developing meaningful solutions and the best way forward. After that, you set the direction and have fun executing.”

JES PEDERSEN

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Construction chose me. My dad hung drywall and I started going to his jobsites at an early age. At about 5 years old I was picking up loose nails with a magnet, and soon thereafter I was nailing off closets. In my teens, he taught me to install acoustical ceilings and eventually I got my welder’s license to install steel studs. From my hands on upbringing, I learned to take pride in my craft and was always looking for new and better ways to build.

And that idea continues today. I want people to be bold enough to challenge the status quo.  It’s a culture we are creating at Webcor because it leads to innovation.

You have to be open to new ideas to be flexible enough to deal with today’s challenges. The demands of building today are eminently more complex, requiring our teams to continuously collaborate.  And working together is paramount to finding the absolute best solutions.


RICH LAMB

CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER

We are built on trust. There was a time in the early 90s when we were down to one project. Just one. We weren’t sure if we would make payroll, let alone someday become one of the largest contractors around. We made it through and that time taught me a lot about trust. We came up with a plan to save ourselves, and we had to trust each other completely.


JOHN BOWLES

CHIEF LEGAL OFFICER

Helping people solve problems is one of my passions. More than that though, I love the diversity of problems I have to solve. It’s never the same day twice here. I knew that with a law degree and my background, I’d be valuable, but I didn’t know exactly how. My job has evolved over the years. I like being bold and proactive when it comes to solving problems, and when I mentor someone along the way, then that’s even better.


TIM LUTZ

CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER

If we have a problem, the only way to fix it is to tackle it head on, and the only way we can do that is if we understand it fully. It’s about how well you lead. When you see your team succeeding, then that means you’re succeeding, too. I also think it’s important that people work for you because they want to, not because they have to.


 

LEN VETRONE

SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT

You have to be passionate about your work to keep you going day to day in this business. The end products we deliver to our clients are rewarding, but I find just as much enjoyment and excitement in forming teams before each project. I love connecting the dots and deriving win strategies.


SHELLEY DORAN

SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT

It’s always about the team and building trusting relationships with everyone we interact with on every project. It is important that we lead by focusing on team accomplishments. Putting the team’s goals first is the best way to make sure we achieve overall success.


TONY RANGO

SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT

In this fast-paced, ever-changing business, it is essential to constantly provide clarity for your people. To use an old adage from the Army, “Any decision is better than no decision at all.” If the course of action turns out to be wrong when more information is available, change direction, explain why, and learn from it. Setting this direction is necessary to avoid paralysis and keeps jobs energized and moving forward.


MARK TURNER

SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT

Having grown up in a construction family, I understand the complexities of owning and operating your own business. This is the perspective I come from when dealing with clients and subcontractors. I am always looking for equitable solutions that keep the ball moving forward.


HANK BRASCH

SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT

In order for us to continue to improve and come closer to mastering our craft, we must be passionate about what we do and fully embrace taking chances and broadening our respective experiences.  Creating a positive team environment where all Webcor employees are supremely confident in their abilities and embrace the many challenges we will face as a company is the key to accomplishing this goal.


CHRIS PLUE

SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT

I’ve been working with concrete since the age of 16. It’s not glamorous, but it attracts people who are not afraid of hard work. I continue to be inspired by what committed individuals working together can accomplish. Construction is a team sport. Those with the best communication prevail.
