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

Wharton-Smith has been a valued partner of the Central Florida Zoo for more than 20 years. I cannot possibly say enough about the trust, ethics and reliability of Wharton-Smith. Most importantly, Wharton-Smith understands the unique challenges of building and operating in a zoological park and act like a partner when engaged in a project, not just a contractor. They have “been there” for the Zoo repeatedly over the years and are an absolute pleasure to work with. Joe Montisano, CEO, Central Florida Zoological Park
Your team handled the project with the utmost professionalism and with constant consideration for adjacent residents. The on-site team went above and beyond giving tours to politicians, participating in filming the process and answering the questions of passers-by. Kristin Caborn, Former St. Cloud Parks and Recreation Director.
