BOSTON– Kaplan Construction announced that its president, Nathan Peck, has been named to Engineering News-Record (ENR) Magazine’s National Top 20 Under 40 list.
An independent panel of judges reviewed the top-scoring regional honorees from ENR’s 2018 Top Young Professionals list to select a National Top 20 Under 40 list to represent the industry’s top rising leaders. Previously one of 11 honorees from across the New England region, Nate was the sole ambassador from the New England region to be named to the National list.
“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized nationally for my industry commitment and I’d like to congratulate the other 19 honorees,” said Nate. “This prestigious award represents my dedication to providing the Greater Boston area with the exceptional quality, service and professionalism that Kaplan Construction has offered for more than four decades.”
Kaplan’s services include preconstruction, general contracting, construction management, and design/build for a variety of clients, including multi-family, commercial, healthcare, historic rehab, institutional, recreational, and worship. In 2014 Kaplan announced the culmination of a three-year management transition in which Nate was promoted to president. In this role, he is responsible for providing strategic direction, fostering and maintaining client relationships, and overseeing the management of projects.
The smooth implementation of time-saving processes and new technologies have become a hallmark of this transition. Under Nate’s leadership, Kaplan Construction’s volume has tripled and the number of staff has doubled. During this time Kaplan has been recognized as a Best Places to Work by the Boston Business Journal for four years in a row and a Top 100 Women-Led Business in Massachusetts by The Commonwealth Institute. Kaplan has also been honored as a Massachusetts Family Business of the Year by the Northeastern University Center for Family and a finalist at the Family Business Association Awards for Massachusetts by The Warren Group.
Nate utilizes his skillset to help improve conditions for both industry and local organizations. His community involvement includes serving on the Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) Massachusetts Chapter’s Board of Directors, the Brookline Building Commission, the Brookline Community Foundation’s Building Committee, and the Brookline Teen Center Board of Directors. Nate co-chaired the Brookline Community Mental Health Center’s annual Believe in Brookline Kids Gala at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston with his wife and Kaplan COO Jane Kaplan Peck in 2016. Out of the office, Nate shares his love of sports with his children, coaching his son’s hockey and lacrosse teams.
Award winners were featured in the July 26, 2018 issue of ENR.
