Q&A session with: Ed Paparone

What inspires you?

Optimism.  I seek out individuals with a “can do” attitude. A team of positive people can achieve anything.

Why did you first get into construction?

I followed in my father’s footsteps. He was a great and respected builder in our industry who I have always tried to emulate. He taught me early on that the success of a project is a reflection of the team brought together to build it.

What are the things you depend on or that just make life easier?

Family. I was raised in a very tight family that always supports each other.  My wife and I strive to maintain the same loving environment everyday with our direct and continually expanding family network.
