How did you first get involved in construction?
Jesse: I grew up in the business. My Dad was my role model. He was the head of the construction department for a residential home builder in New Jersey for 25 years. I worked with him for 11 years – learning the business inside and out. He showed me how to be the man I am today.
Tell me one of your best moments working at Fulcrum Construction:
Jesse: My first Project Manager assignment at Fulcrum was City Chic in Culver City, California. Five weeks into an eight week job, the timeline was moved up one week. We accelerated the schedule and worked around the clock to complete it on time. I knew then I was going to be a good fit here.
What qualities do you need to be successful in this job?
Jesse: As a Project Manager, you need to get everyone involved pulling in the right direction. It helps to be a good motivator. Communication is key, and good communication comes from being honest and direct. You have to take responsibility for all the areas under your supervision to make sure it gets done right.
What are some of your favorite activities/hobbies/pastimes outside of work?
Jesse: I’m from Philadelphia, and love watching Eagles football games with family and friends. I also enjoy skiing and golf.
How many donuts are you capable of eating in one sitting and what kind are they?
