Paul McLaughlin, Manager of Continuous Improvement for the Butz Family of Companies, which includes GBCA member Shoemaker Construction Co., has been a member of GBCA’s Construction Leadership Council Steering Committee since 2020. Representing the CLC, he has also served on GBCA’s Government Affairs and Education Committees.

While he was introduced to the construction trades from his family, it was during his freshman year at Drexel University that he cemented his pursuit of a career in construction. Upon learning that Construction Management was a major and after sitting in on a class, he immediately changed his major. Now in the industry, he values seeing the tangible results: The most rewarding thing for him is being able to see a project materialize from design through to a finished product.

With COVID-19 restrictions lifting in the City of Philadelphia, GBCA’s Construction Leadership Council has come back together in-person! On June 10, 2021, the CLC hosted an in-person workshop and networking event at a local brewery.

After 15 months of virtual meetings, virtual workshops, and virtual “meet-ups,” the CLC wanted an opportunity to rethink networking, and get a refresher on making business and industry connections. Matt Blank, Director of Business Development of Friedman LLP, spoke about building business through networking and relationships, as opposed to a hard sell. This approach to business development and relationship-building starts with a strong conversation.

Christina Pasquariello, Project Manager for P. Agnes, Inc. in Philadelphia, has been a member of GBCA’s Construction Leadership Council Steering Committee since 2019. She also sits on GBCA’s Membership Committee, which leads GBCA’s member recruitment and retention programs.

Christina’s interest in construction began at a young age, when her father, Patrick Pasquariello, III (pictured with Christina), would take her to job sites on the weekends. Early on, she knew that she wanted to work in the family business and follow in her father’s footsteps. Like many construction professionals in family businesses, she earned a degree outside of construction (in her case, marketing), and found herself wanting to return to the family business and learn more about the construction side of the business. Today, she is one of the first women in the family to pursue a leadership position in the company.
