Peter J. Poulos

Principal Consultant

I offer over 30 years of progressive leadership experience within the Chicagoland construction materials and real estate arena. I execute a strategic, results-oriented and consultative approach to facilitate client, personnel and business needs through effective liaison communication, cost-savings initiatives, realization/operational enhancement, seamless integration of sales, operational and IT functions. Spearheading the development of new products and distribution channels, I have been able to consistently drive performance and capitalize on new growth opportunities.

My qualifications include a broad working knowledge of the concrete construction industry and its competitive landscape. In addition, I possess extensive experience in directing the seamless merger/integration of VCNA’s prominent affiliate, Prairie Material Sales, Inc. in 2008. I pride myself on facilitating profitability through strategic planning and key initiative integration, EBITDA management as well as fostering loyal, long-term professional relationships with key market leaders. As the founder and managing broker of Peter J. Poulos Real Estate, I've helped many clients achieve multi-million-dollar conversions of their real estate portfolios.

I am an effective team-builder and communicator, serving as a leader and liaison between internal personnel to exceed client expectations and generate bottom-line-revenue for the organization.

In addition to my professional endeavors, I am actively involved in professional, community and non-for profit affiliations, including the Helmets for Hardhats Proclamation, Northern Illinois Ready Mix Materials Association, Leading Economic Employment Development (LEED) Council and Younglife.
