Bertram Receives Ethics Award

Gary Bertram and David W. Wood

New Ipswich, NH – Gary Bertram, retired executive of Hutter Construction, New Ipswich, recently received the 22nd annual New Hampshire Construction Industry Ethics Award at the AGC Safety Awards Dinner at The Derryfield Country Club.

The award honors the “individual, business or organization that, through its words and deeds, best demonstrates a commitment to upholding the highest ethical standards in construction.”

In addition to a handsome plaque, the award carries with it a $1,000 donation to the recipient’s charity of choice. Bertram requested that the donation be split between Teen Challenge New England, which brings life-changing hope to addicts and their families, and the American Heart Association.

The New Hampshire Construction Industry Ethics Award was established and is underwritten by David W. Wood, a former nationally recognized writer, publisher and marketing consultant specializing in the construction industry. His newsletter, Words from Woody, won 25 awards, including being a three-time recipient of the Construction Writers Association’s prestigious T. Randolph Russell Award. In 2005, Wood was presented with the Silver Hard Hat, that organization’s highest honor.
