Aristeo Values Awards are a prestigious internal recognition given to team members who embody our values of safety, integrity, excellence, ingenuity, grit and comradery. At our recent Town Hall, held in-person for the first time in three years, we celebrated 13 team members for their dedication and success.
Bob Mahan, Superintendent
The foremost of our core values, our safety award honors those who are dedicated to proactive safety leadership.
Bob is great at pre-planning our work with safety at the forefront of every decision; he ensures we have the right equipment, processes and plan to keep the team as safe as possible. Bob proactively communicates with his crew to ensure they know safety expectations and always looks for innovative ways to make hazardous tasks as safe as possible.
Damon Gulette, Senior Project Engineer
Haleigh Hoffman, Senior Human Resources Generalist
Integrity is pervasive throughout our company. This award honors those who display honesty, accountability, and always doing the right thing.
Damon was assigned to a difficult preconstruction process on a large project with opposing budget, design and owner expectations. He rose to the task, consistently assembling and presenting crucial information to the team and the customer all while maintaining a positive attitude.
Haleigh is an excellent example of Aristeo’s integrity value in action. She is trusted to handle our employee benefits, including FMLA and personal leaves, which requires her to be confidential, hardworking and professional. Her kindness and attention to detail are other qualities that make her an invaluable asset to the HR team and Aristeo.
Dustin DiNicola, Assistant Project Manager
Kerri Molitor, Marketing Team Lead
We always strive for excellence at Aristeo. This award honors those who achieve that goal and deliver an unrivaled customer experience.
Dustin is consistently customer focused. On each project he has been involved with, he has made it a priority to ensure the customer’s demands are met and exceeded. His knowledge of the project specifics, calm demeanor and outstanding follow-through have built our customer’s confidence in both Dustin and Aristeo as a whole.
Kerri is always ready and willing to help all departments and business units of Aristeo even when the requests are last minute and the deadlines are tight. She and her team do high quality work and go above and beyond when it comes to the final product.
Nick Jones, Superintendent
Jerry Selden, Superintendent
A hallmark of Aristeo’s construction solutions is how we apply ingenuity to all we do. This award honors those who provide bold, forward thinking solutions.
Nick and his crew had to install a 50-foot bar joist with limited room to bring the joists into the facility. With the help of our fabrication shop, Nick came up with a way of modifying one of our roof carts to safely move whole bundles of joist into the building, creating a more efficient and productive process.
Jerry was tasked with the demolition removal of a 3.5-foot-thick concrete base mat in very tight quarters. Jerry came up with the idea of creating a custom hoist system attached to a building column to remove the basement cores and partnered with our steel fabrication shop to make it a reality. This solution saved us time and ensured the team didn’t have to shut down the customer’s roadway.
Brian Hansen, Superintendent
Connor Pettit, General Foreman
We are known for our incredible work ethic, something we still value today. This award honors those who showcase pride, perseverance and hard work.
Brian always puts the company’s best interests first by building close relationships with customers and earning their trust by delivering on safety, productivity and quality. He has sacrificed many weekends and off shifts to provide the customer with the best Aristeo experience possible. Brian is always willing to support his fellow team members when challenges arise, and we’re grateful to have him on our team!
Connor has done an outstanding job managing one of our self perform concrete projects for over a year and a half. He often leads multiple crews across a very large jobsite while working long hours. Connor has navigated many changes to scope and schedule with a positive attitude. This program has been very challenging due to its scale, but Connor has shown a great deal of maturity with his leadership.
Amanda Enriquez, Executive Administrative Assistant
Dave Nadeau, Senior Safety Manager
Aristeo’s culture is of the utmost importance, both on the job and off, and this award honors those who best exemplify collaboration, trust and winning together.
It doesn’t matter who it’s for or what the challenge is, Amanda is always there to help everyone in any way she can. She always has a positive attitude, solves problems and issues with common sense and is a very good communicator.
On a recent jobsite that has a large team with many team members new to Aristeo, Dave has been a champion of going out of his way to get to know everyone on the team. Comradery is extremely important to ensuring the project team runs cohesively, and Dave has been helping out newer employees and organizing events and gatherings to get the team together after work. The work is tough, but Dave’s efforts have made it a lot of fun as well.
ONE ARISTEO AWARD:
Justin Krasnodemski, Senior Project Manager
Matt Miller, Project Manager
As a growing business with projects across the nation, it is more important than ever to stay connected. This award honors those who emphasize teamwork and working across project teams.
Justin runs all of his projects with enthusiasm and drive. While working on a recent job, he has gone above and beyond in coordinating and communicating with not only other internal team members, but our subcontractors and the end client as well. He consistently earns the respect of all those around him and works hard to ensure that all of Aristeo is successful, not just within his team.
Matt works with all of our business units and does a great job setting everyone up for success. From clearly communicating scope and schedule needs to keeping all BUs abreast with any changes, onsite contacts and any other questions that arise, the projects run smoothly because he is thinking about Aristeo as a whole being successful.
Thank you and congratulations again to our Values Awards Class of 2023!
