Greg L. Butz
President and CEO
Alvin H. Butz Inc.
Butz has been president since 1995, “following four generations dating back to the mid-1800s, and looking forward to passing it to the sixth generation.”
He is also CEO of Shoemaker Construction Co. and Alexander Building Construction Co.
His job, Butz said, is to execute a vision that is “dedication to superior project delivery, build(ing) on our tradition of excellence with an unwavering commitment to quality, to make sure we perform with integrity, honesty, reliability and enthusiasm, and most of all, make sure we maintain a commitment to our community.”
That community commitment stands out, Butz added. “While there are many business accomplishments like year after year being the only local firm to be recognized as a top 400 (construction management) firm in the country, I’m most proud of the all-star team of employees we’ve assembled and special relationship we have with local charitable organizations and trade partners.”
His recommendation? “If you surround yourself with successful people and seek advice from them, you’re more than likely be successful at work and in life. I’ve been fortunate to have had a good network of employees, business associates and friends to help me.”
As for finding ways to take a break, that’s a challenge when you’re responsible for 200 employees and $1 billion of work across multiple states, Butz said. “So I look for things to do to relax and de-stress. Those things include golf, traveling, watching sporting events and enjoying my grandchildren.”
