President | Consolidated Construction Inc.
Al is the real deal. Why do I say this, because while he is well read regarding the latest leadership theory, he couples that with years of knowledge from the actual doing of the hard work that was required to play an instrumental role at the Executive level of a highly regarded firm. Through it all, Al has remained a man of humility who engages the people he works with, and inspires them to be a better version of themselves. Most importantly, his coaching and facilitating of our people has created a healthier, more productive team.
