President and CEO
Location: Edison, NJ
The Conti Group has been around for 110 years, and attributes its history of success to core values like honesty and integrity, and to its employees. Over the decades, says Kurt Conti, The Conti Group has fostered an entrepreneurial spirit in employees that has pushed the company into expanding markets like environmental remediation and renewable energy. With employees and crews working around the world, The Conti Group has found ways to bridge the geographical gap through internal communication, team meetings and company-wide celebrations of major milestones. Conti employees celebrate together via an internal website called the Conti Intranet, and through a newsletter. Employees genuinely like each other, says Conti, and can often be found celebrating project wins together, getting together for BBQs or playing on the Conti softball team.
