We have many outstanding individuals who have served on ABC MA's Board for a number of years and are excited to announce six new members who were elected to the Board for 2017. Their new ideas and energy will be a welcomed addition.
This week, we spoke with Brian Kennedy, owner of B.W. Kennedy & Company based in Boston, MA.
Brian’s family worked in the construction industry since he was very young, leading him to follow the same path. His career began in the field as a carpenter’s apprentice. There he acquired hands on building experience and a passion for building. He quickly moved through the construction ranks to become a project executive and manage construction of large projects, including a new 55,000 sq. ft. music center and a LEED Gold residence hall. Brian has since founded B.W. Kennedy & Company, a firm of builders who share his building passion.
B.W. Kennedy & Company joined ABC MA several years ago on the recommendation of a peer and Brian has increased his engagement over the years. He joined the ABC MA Board of Directors to participate in the leadership of the construction industry and take a more active role in the field. He expects to learn a great deal across all aspects of the construction industry – from safety to insurance, legal to business strategies - and hopes to bring his entrepreneurial insight about starting and growing a construction business to the organization.
In his free time, Brian likes to ski and play baseball. He vacations on Cape Cod in the summer with his family where they fish and enjoy water sports.
