Marketing and Administration Manager
Krusinski Construction Company

Krusinski Construction Company was founded in 1973 by Gina's father Joseph Krusinski. The company is a design/build general contractor and professional manager of construction services. They deliver a wide range of industrial, distribution, manufacturing, office, retail, recreational, healthcare and commercial projects in the Chicago metropolitan and Midwest regional markets.

"After graduating from college and working for a few years, I went back for an associates degree in construction technology. I entered the business when I was 26 years old as an assistant in accounting and as a project manager. I eventually became the Marketing Manager. I am responsible for putting together RFP's, coordinating press releases, advertising ground breakings, publicizing company events, and our web site. I am also responsible for Human Resources."

Active in Family Business Activities
"I encouraged our family to get involved with the Unversity of Illinois at Chicago Family Business Council. I have been involved with a forum -- a small peer group -- for ten years. We have learned many "do's and don'ts" which have been critical to our business. We meet as a family twice a year for a full day, with spouses, to talk about the business, the future, and lessons learned. We meet monthly with key leaders regarding what is going well, what could be done better, changes in technology, and what is coming up. We have learned to be more open -- even though we are privately held -- so that colleagues can make the best decisions. This approach came as a result of listening to other Family Business Council members."

Gina's father, uncle, and two younger brothers are also in the business.
