Terri Smith – The Edge Fitness Clubs

As a stay-at-home mom, Terri Smith found it challenging to keep up with her gym routine. She had less time to work out and struggled to find someone to watch her two young kids while she did. When she found out the Edge Fitness Clubs offered childcare to members, she was thrilled to finally get […]

Tom Pelis – Oswego Health

Financing and staffing during COVID-19 is tough in the healthcare business. Still, Tom Pelis is juggling both so Oswego Health’s facilities can continue several necessary construction projects, including an $8 million renovation of its surgical wings. “Whatever the project is, the goal is always the same: delivering excellence in care,” says Pelis, Oswego Health’s director, […]

Tim Singleton – Wellesley College

Walking around Wellesley College’s campus just outside of Boston, students have been treated to a pastoral landscape that has changed little since 1875. Stone and brick buildings are nestled between groves of woodland trees and winding paths hug the shoreline of Lake Waban. That made the redevelopment of Science Hill—including a new redesign of historic […]

Thomas Roche – Bristol Health

It’s becoming more of a rarity, the independent community hospital such as what you’ll find in Bristol, Connecticut. A full-service, 154-bed facility, Bristol Hospital—which is part of Bristol Health—is noted for being the Nutmeg State’s top-ranked when it comes to protecting patients from infections. Only its aging Emergency Center was due for upgrade. That upgrade […]

Tim Andersen – C&S Companies

There are many metaphors related to seeing colors: Everything is golden when all goes well; red if you’re angered; green when financial success is well in hand. As C&S Companies grows across the U.S., Tim Andersen sees teal—an emerging business paradigm introduced in 2014 by author Frédéric Laloux, that defines success through better self-organization and self-management. For more than 50 years, Syracuse-based C&S has provided design-build services in upstate New York, taking projects from […]

Travis Kowalke – US Pharmacopeia

These days, there’s a certain comfort in taking medication, knowing that whatever went into the bottle adheres to the rigorously tested standards from United States Pharmacopeia. Improving global health through public standards and related programs that help ensure the quality, safety and benefit of medicines and foods is the mission of this Maryland-based nonprofit, currently […]

Thomas J. “T.J.” Quatroni Jr. – Abilene Inc.

There was nowhere to go but up. Contracted to install a new boiler and HVAC system in lower Manhattan, the leadership team at Abilene Inc. quickly realized this wasn’t a typical job, even with their decades of experience. Because basement areas where the company typically installs its custom-built boilers weren’t available, the team had to […]

Tom Cahill – Donnelly Mechanical

They start working after everyone else has gone home for the night or called it a weekend, and the jobs are not pretty. The heating and cooling units are bulky and sensitive, sometimes weigh tons, and probably will be installed in a tight space with bad lighting. Doors and windows often need to be removed […]

T.N. Ward Company

You could say the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino placed a safe bet in the hands of Thomas Falvey and the T.N. Ward Co. team headed up in Atlantic City by Executive Vice President John Devecchio. A large one, to be sure—the resort chain entrusting them to wager $1 million per day over the span […]

Todd Barnhart – Gardiner

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. Bill had spent the last five years selling heating, ventilating and cooling products for Trane, one of the largest […]
