BELLEVUE, Wash. (February 7, 2019) – GLY Construction named Joe Bonacci as its new chief financial officer.
Bonacci joined GLY Construction in 2016, and served as Director of Finance for the last three years. He succeeds Steve Peterson, who retired in late 2018 after 16 years with the firm.
“We’re excited to have Joe on our team,” said GLY President Ted Herb. “He’s the perfect fit to move our ambitions to transform GLY into a data-driven organization forward, and to meet our value of continuous improvement.”
Bonacci grew up in Omaha, Nebraska, and received an undergraduate degree from University of Kansas in Accounting and Business Administration, and a MBA from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. He moved to Chicago in 1998 to pursue a finance career in the building industry, where he spent over 15 years working for various specialty subcontractors and suppliers. His positions continued to increase in responsibility, from project accountant to senior financial analyst, to regional controller and chief financial officer. He relocated from Chicago to Seattle in 2013, and he was financial manager for another general contractor before coming to GLY.
“It’s an honor to be in this position,” Bonacci said, “and be able to contribute to GLY’s legacy of service, integrity, and value.”
He says much of the focus of his new role will be working with other company leaders to leverage new technology to improve various processes. “We recognize our industry is historically slow to change, but we don’t have to accept that. We’re committed to seeking out ways to build faster, make things easier for our clients, and just create a better experience for the whole project team.”
Rooted in the Pacific Northwest culture of innovation and creativity, GLY is one of the most respected locally-owned general contractors, celebrating 50 years in 2017. Projects span a wide range of markets, and the firm is known for adapting thoughtfully and purposefully, building on a strong foundation of smart technology, integrated delivery, LEAN practices and responsible sustainability.
