As General Superintendent, he is the director of onsite activities and is in control of all labor coordination.

BACKGROUND & EXPERIENCE

With over 35 years in the construction industry, Tony brings a great deal of knowledge and experience to the ACCEND team. Even at a young age, Tony always knew that he wanted to work in construction. At 14 Tony developed an interest in the building trades. In high school he participated in a building workshop that built addition’s and garages in the community. Tony’s love for construction quickly grew and influenced him to pursue an apprenticeship at Washburn Trade School. There was no stopping him from there. He went on to work for various construction companies and has assisted in the successful completion of many projects in the Chicagoland area.  Tony’s passion for construction and hunger for knowledge are two of the many reasons he is so valuable to the ACCEND team. He truly loves his work and takes pride in every one of his projects. He is focused on meeting client needs and making the construction process easy and fun.

Tony values teamwork above all else. He knows that it is necessary for everyone to work together in order to have a project run smoothly. Because of this, Tony encourages communication and collaboration. He puts worth in creating an open environment that allows team members to speak their mind and provide valuable input.
