Here is today’s WIC profile!
Stacy Roman, Commodore Builders
Stacy Roman grew up in a family of doctors and lawyers and naturally assumed she would follow the same path. With the guidance of her mom and dad, she opted for a different road and attended Wentworth for architectural engineering.
Prior to graduating from WIT, she co-oped at Harvard University, Gale Associates, and A.J. Martini. Due to the recession, she then moved to Florida after graduating and joined Skanska for four years as assistant project manager. During this time, she married her college sweetheart, who is also in the industry as a senior project manager. They picked up and moved back to Boston, where she signed on with Shawmut for two years as an APM. After the second recession in 2010, she began her career at Commodore Builders and has never looked back.
Roman admits that although the work has been demanding, she could not enjoy it more. Every day brings a new challenge and, as a PM, you are the “president and CEO of your projects.” Whether it’s managing material procurement, change and cost management, or client services, it all comes down to accountability and building relationships.
Because she is a mom, she has to be selective of how she allocates her time after hours. Networking and building relationships are critical in the industry, but it’s difficult to attend all of the networking and social events that are out there. She joined BWiC because of the committee’s much-focused mission of supporting other women in the built environment in Massachusetts. As the first chair, she has a selfless vision and desire to establish a resource that will support all women in the industry in building their career paths. Her role as BWiC Chair has also given her the opportunity to sit on the AGC MA Board of Directors.
