Vincent Bruzzese – Brookfield Properties

They’ll be back. Vincent Bruzzese can’t predict exactly how or when, but he knows many are returning to their offices and more will, as COVID-19 abates, and a vaccine is developed. As a director on New York-based Brookfield Properties’ construction team, Bruzzese helps guide interior reconstruction projects throughout the city, most notably at the company’s Manhattan headquarters. Change came to office landscapes well before the coronavirus pandemic. Cubicles and paneled conference rooms are […]

Caitlin Summers – MOM’s Organic Market

This grocery chain’s latest opening had some curve balls thrown its way. COVID-19 has had such effects on construction projects everywhere, but it wouldn’t unduly delay MOM’s Organic Market from expanding to Abington, Pennsylvania, this past Sept. 4. Oh, it took some pivoting, acknowledges Caitlin Summers, the new director of construction and facilities who oversaw […]

Jana Fain-Rossen – Zwift

It’s not every day that someone gets her feet wet in facilities management in an office where pigs wearing tutus mingle with some of the funniest people in show business. But not everyone is Jana Fain-Rossen. Fain-Rossen, a native of Atlanta, got her start working for a production company in Beverly Hills before moving to […]

Billy Graves – Citi Trends

During recent bouts of looting and civil unrest in cities like Chicago and Minneapolis—in response to police killings of unarmed Black men and women—several Citi Trends stores were destroyed. But, like Billy Graves has always done in his nearly four-decade career with the company, he got the damaged retail spaces repaired and reopened in a […]

Gina Belleci – Sift

A pandemic still in progress, it might seem like an inopportune time for a company to be moving into new offices, but Gina Belleci says otherwise. She’s been part of other office relocations that have essentially been done on the fly. “The standard office move? Over the weekend and little attention to detail,” the friendly […]

RJ Kosadnar – Empyrean Benefit Solutions Inc.

Such a moving target, this responsibility of outfitting facilities for maximum production. So many factors affecting it, maybe especially so around the Texas Gulf Coast where hurricanes can be an annual event. But if Mother Nature becomes as unfriendly as in 2017, at least Empyrean Benefit Solutions is well prepared. RJ Kosadnar has seen to […]

Ronnie Mewengkang – Solomon Page

It’s bound to lift, or at least mitigate, this pandemic that’s so disrupted the world as we know it. But even if the risks of COVID-19 are deemed manageable enough for employees to return to work, Ronnie Mewengkang’s very proactive sanitation measures won’t rest. In just a few months, he’s come too far as facilities […]

David Dickson – Dickson Company

It’s been sent to the so-called dustbin of history, and nobody’s likely to have mourned the demolition of the old King County Youth Services Center in Seattle. Especially with the new Judge Patricia H. Clark Children and Family Justice Center having opened late last year to critical acclaim and reflecting a more progressive approach to […]

Comico Hadden

When it comes to pulling together construction projects, Comico Hadden got a formidable lesson from two strong-minded women in her life who taught her anything can be achieved with hard work and persistence. She learned that firsthand when her mother and grandmother bought an affordable fixer-upper in northern New Jersey and taught the 8-year-old how […]

Duane Boris ‒ Northern Tool + Equipment

During the economic downturn and recession in 2008 and 2009, just before Duane Boris came to work at Northern Tool, the Minnesota-based construction equipment provider faced a choice: Continue as it had or adapt to the changing marketplace. It did the same thing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Boris says. “Even though we’ve been […]
