“I have worked with Shane for almost four years now, and that entire time he has been my primary mentor, and a great one at that!
Shane has done it all, and his loyalty is unmatched. He has been working with the O’Brien family for the last 25 years, and in that time, he’s built everything from high rises, tilt-up warehouses, schools, hotels, restaurants, breweries, and more.
Shane embodies O’Brien’s Core Values in all manners. I can trust Shane to do his job and to do it well. He always provides help and solutions when asked, even outside of work.
Shane is one of the biggest advocates for collaboration and delegation, as he tells me all the time, ‘You can’t do it all, you have to delegate.’ At the same time, if I need help or advice with a task, especially in regards to completing physical work or estimating, Shane is the first person I speak to.
Shane is innovative, and he has a truly brilliant mind. He’s still learning and using new tech every day, while I’ve seen so many others show so much hesitation to adapt. Also, if there’s any sort of issue that requires a creative solution, like how to shore up a building from the exterior to perform interior beam and joist repairs, he’s my man! His experience combined with the mind he has developed throughout his life is truly amazing.
Shane’s future is rock solid, and largely up to him. Shane has worn a lot of hats, including senior project manager and general superintendent, so I know he can do whatever he sets his mind to!”
