NASBP April 9 Virtual Seminar: "How Well Do You Really Know Your Contractor?"

03/27/2013

Mark your calendars for 2 p.m. Eastern time Tuesday, April 9, for an engaging hour with Doug Pruitt, chairman of Sundt Construction and co-author of the book "Level Headed -- Inside the Walls of One of the Greatest Turnaround Stories of the 21st Century." Pruitt will share his compelling story of how a well-respected construction firm could be nearly broke and not know it. In addition to describing how he identified weaknesses and made tough decisions about Sundt that helped bring the company back to the thriving, successful business it is today, Pruitt will explain ways surety professionals can assess their contractor clients' exposures and the importance of encouraging clients to maintain focus and to plan for their companies' future. Susan Hecker, NASBP third vice president and area executive vice president for Gallagher Construction Services in San Francisco, said Pruitt's story offers surety professionals valuable insight into their construction clients: "I lived this story with Doug. Members of the surety industry stepped up and played their own significant part in the story. The lessons learned are applicable to any business and provide a road map to success for both executives and young professionals." Pruitt has won numerous awards, including Silicon Valley's Most Admired CEO's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011 and an honorable mention in the list of Top 10 Most Influential People in Arizona for the last 100 years.
