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.
My passion and drive to succeed has allowed me to excel and thrive while remaining focused on optimizing productivity and maintaining the highest standards of ethics, integrity and professionalism to ensure an optimal internal/external customer experience. I drive business objectives with innovative leadership and the constant challenge of excelling both personally and professionally. I will bring an unparalleled competitive spirit to your team, which will be instrumental in building and implementing winning strategies for your organization.
