Balestrieri project managers Alex Balestrieri, Richard Heyer, and Nathan Kawlewski attended AGC of Greater Milwaukee’s Learn from the Legends Luncheon Tuesday, May 25th. This four-person panel was moderated by AGC of Greater Milwaukee’s Chief Executive Officer, Mark Kessenich, with a panel consisting of Berghammer Construction Corp.’s President & Principal, Jim Parks, J.P. Cullen & Sons, Inc. Former Vice President (Retired) Larry Rocole, Jens Construction Corp.’s CEO & Project Manager Dave Jones, and CG Schimdt, Inc.’s Executive Vice President & COO Mike Abuls.
The four construction legends shared their wisdom and career lessons they learned over the years.
Key takeaways for Alex Balestrieri were that it takes more than financial decisions to run a successful company. It takes a group of like-minded people with a shared goal. Additionally, it’s not what you say, but how you say it. Other takeaways included the importance of strong communication, striking a
work/life balance, and welcoming curious and creative thoughts.
