John Spight, Operations Manager for the Colorado division, ranked in the Top 20 in ENR Mountain States. John has benefited from strong mentorship his entire life, starting with his grandfather, who taught him the basics of carpentry. He has elevated Swinerton’s college-recruiting efforts, helping to operate an intern program that targets the country’s best construction management programs.
“John’s philosophy is as direct as he is: genuinely care about others, surround yourself with good people, develop them in the way they need to be developed, and never let anybody down. With this foundation established firmly, everything else falls into place despite challenges that arise,” said Division Manager Tim Kretzschmar.
Winners of the 2020 ENR Mountain States Top Young Professionals competition are presidents, architects, engineers, constructors, virtual design experts, and project managers, but also people deeply committed to improving the industry and their communities.
