Meet Lee Summers, Electrical Project Manager, C Mechanical Services!
How has your involvement in ABC Keystone provided you value in your professional life?
I have been involved with ABC since my apprenticeship started back in 2006. From the various apprenticeship teachers I had, to my mentors training me for the ABC National Craft Championships (NCC), to becoming an apprenticeship instructor and later leading the NCC training, I have long seen the benefits of ABC. I met many people and learned so many things during my involvement at ABC. I have learned to take criticism and use it to perform self-assessment and improve, and I have learned a great deal about how politics plays into every aspect of our trade work. It’s truly an invaluable resource.
Meet Brent Droege, Financial Director & Vice President, Cedar Run Construction! With being in the early stages of my involvement with ABC I am excited to see what doors it will help open for me and the company for which I work. So far, I have met some informative people that have helped the way I look at the business and how I interact with our stakeholders. It has also opened another world of networking that I was unaware of before being a part of the construction industry and a part of ABC Keystone. I enjoyed meeting new people at the mixer in August.
Meet Donald Stahlnecker! My role is Project Manager at Warfel Construction Company in our Operations Department. Internally, I manage our construction teams on the individual projects on which I’m working, and externally, I coordinate with our clients and design teams on project schedules, costs, and constructability.
Meet Amir Boutorabi! What role do you play in your organization? I am a Preconstruction Manager for Warfel Construction Company. I work closely with clients and design consultants to create conceptual/detailed estimates while analyzing market conditions and performing constructability reviews. It is the responsibility of a Preconstruction Manager to set up a project for success from the beginning and to ensure a seamless process from start to finish.
Meet David Brubaker, Surety Client Service Associate, McConkey Insurance & Benefits! How has your involvement in ABC Keystone provided you value in your professional life? Since I work on the insurance side of construction, I don’t typically get to see all the details that go into planning and estimating. ABC has provided a fantastic forum for discussion and networking that allows my peers and I to learn about the areas of construction we don’t see on an everyday basis. I feel that with each meeting, I gain knowledge and experience that I can use to better serve my clients.
Meet Kyle Lukoskie, CB Construction Services, Inc., Operations Coordinator! How has your involvement in ABC Keystone provided you value in your professional life? For several years, I have predominantly taken advantage of the vast educational opportunities offered by ABC Keystone. Of these, the Leadership Development Series and the Superintendent Training Series are among my favorites. Moreover, ABC Keystone also provides a viable opportunity to network with individuals and companies from all corners of the construction industry and related businesses.
Meet Katy Landis, Saxton & Stump Lawyers and Consultants! Tell us about the role you play in your organization: I am an associate attorney at Saxton & Stump Lawyers and Consultants, where my practice is (almost) exclusively dedicated to the construction industry. I routinely advise contractors and subcontractors on risk mitigation and general matters related to their operations, including reviewing and revising construction contracts. On occasion, risk mitigation turns into litigation, which I also handle for our clients. Although I started my legal career as an Assistant Public Defender in York County, and I’m no stranger to the courtroom, I strive to reach practical, real-world solutions—even in litigation. At the end of the day, the project must go on!
