CEO Message

[An annual message from our CEO, dated 1/5/24]

The past year at Tighe & Bond was one of continued growth and innovation. We surpassed 500 staff members for the first time in our firm’s history, with expansion across all of our disciplines. This growth and multi-disciplinary expertise allows us to expand and deepen our services to meet the needs of our clients.

In 2024, we remain committed with unwavering dedication to our mission:

“To provide innovative and practical solutions that foster vibrant, healthy communities while protecting and enhancing our environment.”

This commitment to our communities and environment is reflected in the recent acquisition of Coastal Engineering Co. (Coastal), which furthers our ability to focus on projects in environmentally sensitive coastal areas.

Our outlook for 2024 also reflects our vision of being an excellent workplace, a trusted advisor to our clients, and a choice investment for our employee owners. Some of our priorities include:

  • Focusing on talent acquisition and retention across the organization.
  • Affirming our core belief in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) and continuing to promote an inclusive, welcoming workplace.
  • Further growing our digital services and advanced technology offerings.
  • Expanding within our core geographies to meet the market’s growing needs; this includes the Coastal acquisition and a new office in the Capital District of New York.

Make a Difference

Volunteering and giving back is a core part of our culture; through our “Make a Difference” program, employees volunteered for over 150+ organizations this year. Our commitment to our greater community continues through our support of non-profits like Water for People and STEM scholarships to educate the next generation –in addition to our named scholarship with the National Society of Black Engineers, we recently added two new scholarships with the Boston Architectural College and UMass Lowell.

A Note of Appreciation

I would like to start by thanking our clients and partners for their trust, collaboration, and loyalty. Partnering with our clients to see a project come to fruition makes this work so fulfilling. To our employee owners, thank you for your thought leadership and excellent work for our clients, and your continued embodiment of our core values.

Tighe & Bond's six Core Values: Integrity, Excellence, Reliability, Commitment, Respect, and Safety.

As we reflect on the moments that made 2023 special, I think back to our all-employee holiday party, as well as our largest ever Lobsterfest, maintaining our social culture as we continue to grow, and, of course, our impactful project work and related recognition. Check out some of the highlights in our year in review book.

It’s a tremendous time to be in our business and we look forward to working with all of you in 2024.

I wish you and yours a safe, healthy and rewarding year ahead.
