SEATTLE - Howard S. Wright, a Balfour Beatty company, congratulates Washington State Division President, Dan Peyovich, for being named one of ENR Northwest’s Top Young Professionals. The second-annual competition features young professionals who have distinguished themselves as innovative thought leaders in the Northwest construction community.
ENR highlighted Peyovich’s inventive endeavors like the conversion of a conference room into a “collaboration suite” equipped with two 60-inch touch screen monitors that contain a "Dashboard" home screen. The “Dashboard” provides employees access to all pertinent information related to a project and can be adapted for foremen and superintendents to use with their smart tablets in the field.
“Not only is Dan a strategic thinker, he is a natural leader,” stated Eric Stenman, regional CEO for Balfour Beatty Construction’s West Region. “Working alongside him, I have watched him develop a leadership team that operates on the cutting edge of our industry.”
