John Short

Superintendent, Portland

John’s motto is, “plan your work, work your plan.” After three decades in construction, what John enjoys most is seeing a well-developed construction plan come together for the success of all team members in the pursuit of a common goal. He maintains safety as his top priority on every job—continually looking ahead and anticipating issues before they become a reality—enabling him to expertly manage schedules with minimal risk. When not at work, John enjoys being outdoors with his family and friends, and you can usually find him hunting or fishing.
