Under the leadership of Mike Rallo, Jr., PARIC Corp. is tackling the 2024 construction marketplace with a new approach. While still serving nine unique markets, a more focused, client-centric approach to four key sectors of Industrial, Institutional, Living and Special Projets is underway. This new structure will position PARIC to better meet our clients’ changing needs, provide greater focus and accountability at the sector level, enable greater flexibility for the company and provide mentorship, learning and growth opportunities for our next generation of leaders.

With a concentration on continued, deliberate growth, Rallo and Chief Operating Officer Todd Goodrich have promoted five employees to senior management and business development teams to lead these sectors.

“These promotions align with our strategic plan of promoting from within,” Rallo said. “We are ever-expanding our internal leadership development opportunities to support promotions at all levels of the company and we’re proud to announce our next generation of leadership,” he added.
