It takes a team to perform even the most minor operation, and a major one was about to get underway a couple of years ago at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The patient being the flagship Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion of the huge hospital. The locale being urban Los Angeles, the stakes couldn’t have been much higher […]

He’s manned the night shift at some of New Jersey’s biggest casinos, saving patrons from the occasional jammed elevator. He once oversaw operations for an iconic theme park, where he maintained roller coasters and made sure the lions and rhinos had a warm place to sleep. In a behind-the-scenes kind of way, Mike Zebrowski was […]

Paul Donhauser – Boston Scientific

Ever detail- and outcome-oriented, Paul Donhauser considers himself the Bill Belichick of corporate real estate management, although he may be more charismatic than the New England Patriots’ famously taciturn coach. He’s also much less secretive about his game plan. Donhauser might even like to see other companies, including competitors, borrowing from the winning strategy he […]

It’s a fact of construction life that the bosses have been bemoaning for years. Though the trades are teeming with opportunities, there’s not a rush of young men and women to be electricians, mechanics, pipefitters, masons, painters, plumbers, carpenters and all the other vocational roles so necessary in bringing a blueprint’s intent to fruition.

As company monikers go, “the eagle that carried Zeus’ thunderbolts” is pretty tough to top—particularly so when the title in question is cast in all uppercase letters. However, the firm’s management says the name AQUILA has less to do with Greek mythology, and more to do with eagles’ keen eyes. “We’ve always prided ourselves on […]

The cartoonist Scott Adams might never know what a savior he’s been to office workers in all four corners of the globe.

The Fernandes brothers, Joe, David, Julio and Victor stood around one another at a family party in New Bedford, Connecticut, when it hit them—the idea that would change their lives. They had spent years working alongside their father with masonry subcontractors throughout New England. Why not go into business for themselves? They had the experience, […]

When the Hyatt chain opened one of its newest resorts near the Caribbean paradise of Cancun on Mexico’s eastern shore, Carl Kernodle, vice president of planning and design, practiced his own method of quality assessment. “I walk the property and talk to the people, asking them where they’re from, how they’re enjoying their vacation and […]

When Bill Gardiner bought the controlling assets of an HVAC service and distribution company in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1962, he took great pride in being able to dictate the priorities and future of his new business.

Gary Wood – Stryker Construction

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It seemed a risky move back in late 2011 when Gary Wood, all of 30 years old and tired of toiling for others, went forth with his own construction company at a time when builders in the greater St. Louis area were having trouble finding work. “I had a lot of people tell me it […]
