Happy New Year – Looking Forward to 2019 and Beyond!
On January 1, it was my honor to become Tighe & Bond’s ninth President and CEO. It is an exciting time at our firm with record growth, a strong culture, robust and broad employee ownership, and superb staff all supporting our strategic vision. I’d like to extend a special thanks to our former President and CEO Dave Pinsky, whose leadership and vision have been instrumental in guiding Tighe & Bond to where it is today. My focus will be on helping Tighe & Bond continue to develop and execute strategies for our growth and success throughout the northeast, as well as helping our clients achieve their goals. The outlook is bright for our firm in 2019, and I hope for you too.
Our Vision: Choice Employer, Choice Consultant, Choice Investment
Now and in the years ahead, Tighe & Bond’s vision is to be the “choice employer, choice consultant, and choice investment.” Our goal is to be a great place to work, a trusted advisor to our clients, and a firm where employee owners willingly invest both their time and capital. Besides providing excellent engineering and environmental services to our clients, we are equally committed to our people and our communities. Our intent is to expand upon all the good things our organization has accomplished already.
Tighe & Bond has been recognized multiple times by the Zweig Group as one of the best engineering firms to work for in the nation. Continuing to invest in our people with a multitude of learning and growth programs is a win-win for us all. Our goal is to create a work place that inspires, motivates and rewards employees. Our firm was also named a 2018 Circle of Excellence member by PSMJ Resources, Inc. as an industry leader in top-notch business practices and sustainable business results. Our goal has always been to run an extraordinary client and employee focused organization, as well as an exceptional and high performing business. In addition, Engineering News Record annually ranks Tighe & Bond among the top design and environmental engineering firms nationally. These awards illustrate our commitment to both our employees and our business.
These are great accomplishments and we are committed to taking this to the next level. This means becoming an even stronger learning and growth organization, increasing our focus on safety and health, and expanding our services in areas such as transportation and asset management. We are also evaluating new geographies in the northeast, and increasing our focus on technology, to better serve our clients. As always, Tighe & Bond is committed to staying nimble and sensitive to industry trends and technology advances. This is essential to providing exceptional services to our clients and engaging the highest quality staff.
A Commitment to Our Core Values and Our Communities
Integrity, excellence, reliability, commitment and respect are the core values that infuse Tighe & Bond’s culture and business practices. Even as our firm changes and grows, we remain committed to these core values and our communities.
An employee-owned firm, Tighe & Bond has more than 370 team members who are committed to being difference makers – in both our work and the communities we serve. Our generous staff believe strongly in helping others and serving the communities in which they live and work. This giving back helps make us a stronger, more caring and fun place to work. More than 200 organizations benefited from Tighe & Bond employees’ time and talents last year in our “Make a Difference” service program. It was truly another wonderful year of making a difference together.
A Note of Appreciation
I would like to acknowledge and thank all our clients and business partners for all of their support and trust in our company, and in the individuals who serve them. I would also like to extend my deepest appreciation to Tighe & Bond’s exceptional staff. Our success is due to both our clients and the commitment and talents of our dedicated staff. Together we make great things happen.
