Dan Vos Construction Superintendent Named ABC Craft Professional of the Year
WASHINGTON, DC Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) names Scott Walters of Belding, Michigan, Superintendent at Dan Vos Construction Co., its 2016 Craft Professional of the Year.
"Scott demonstrates an uncompromising commitment to safety, the professional development of his colleagues, the highest quality of construction and the satisfaction of his clients," said 2016 ABC National Chair David Chapin, President of Willmar Electric Service, Lincoln, Nebraska.
As the 2016 Craft Professional of the Year, Walters received a brand new 2016 Ram Tradesman Crew Cab truck from the award's exclusive sponsor, Tradesmen International, with custom upgrades donated by ABC business partner Ram Commercial.
"I really respect the fact that Scott is watching out for our younger people, training them and making sure they understand what it means to do things the Dan Vos way," said Dan Vos, President and CEO of Dan Vos Construction, Ada, Michigan. "Our people trust in him and want to work hard for him. He truly cares about people, and wants to see them succeed. Scott is a perfect example of living out the merit shop philosophy; this award couldn't be more fitting."
Walters began his career at Dan Vos Construction Company as a Carpenter in 1988 and has grown into his current role as On-Site Supervisor. During the last five years, he has supervised more than $99 million in construction without any lost-time incidents - an excellent safety record.
His community involvement includes volunteering in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life and Gilda's Club Grand Rapids, which provides free emotional care to children and adults coping with cancer or the loss of a loved one. Walters also donates work to St. Patrick's Church School in Parnell, Michigan, and serves on the board of directors of the Lowell Youth Football League.
Walters was selected from among four finalists, all of who received a tool kit from Bosch.
