Leadership

Working together, our leaders create the vision, support the strategies, and are the catalyst for developing the individual bench strength to move the organization forward.

Our leadership team bring decades of experience and many have been with the company since its founding. Their experience has taught them that people don’t want to be managed, or driven, they want to be inspired and led. To do that leaders must provide a compelling vision. It takes a big dream to inspire people to work more effectively with existing processes but also embrace new ways of doing things. And our dedicated leaders are doing just that.

Testimonials

Environmental coordination on this project was extremely important. Wharton-Smith managed issues associated with water quality, cultural resources, soil contamination, wetlands, and flood plains. They worked closely with the site contractor and representatives from local government, the Water Management District, Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to ensure that environmental impacts were minimized.

It was a pleasure to work with people who could help redesign a project to fit within our budget. John Greenauer, VP Operations, Central Florida YMCA
