Ted Herb joined GLY in 1987 as a Project Engineer, rising to Vice President of Operations by 2008, and has served as President since 2016. Today, as both President and CEO, he brings a sincere understanding of the diverse skills and perspectives that contribute to successful project delivery at every level within the general construction industry. In addition to leading numerous projects that help shape the story of the City of Bellevue’s growth, including Lincoln Square real estate development projects and Overlake Hospital’s expansions, he has played a pivotal role in shaping the company’s cultural focus on safety and continuous improvement. Ted has always demonstrated a deep empathy for the welfare of everyone on his project team, and tirelessly advocates for work/life balance and professional opportunity at GLY.
Project teams benefit from Spencer’s hit-the-ground-running attitude and determination in finding the best solutions for the task at hand. His natural ability to facilitate a collaborative environment by asking questions and bouncing ideas off team members often results in creative solutions for the tasks at hand. He enjoys applying many of the same concepts to parenting, as he raises his young daughter with his wife Taylor.
Anita began her career in architecture and has since migrated to the construction world where she enjoys collaborating with design teams and subcontractors to work through constructability issues while achieving design intent. She employs advanced technologies throughout a project’s lifecycle from early design estimates to virtual project handover and closeout. Anita also supports our project teams by coordinating MEP and running clash detection.
Jon attributes his appreciation of craft and hard work to working as a carpenter for a Spokane-based general contractor while earning a BS in Construction Management from Washington State University. Since joining GLY in 1999, he’s honed his expertise as a healthcare and high-tech office project manager and team builder. When he’s not piecing together complex logistics plans, you’ll find Jon cheering on the Seattle Sounders or casting a line. If he could talk his wife into selling everything and living in a trailer down by the river, he’d be there already.
Chris leads GLY’s Accounting department with an enthusiasm for a supportive and tight-knit team culture. He views accounting as a new puzzle to solve each day and enjoys working through the challenges that accompany them. In his spare time, you can find Chris continuing to exercise his mind while reading, writing, and playing board games and video games.
When Joe joined GLY in 2016 as Director of Finance, he brought 15+ years of industry experience with him, along with a refreshing angle on the ideas of service, integrity, and value. In late 2018 he was named CFO. In this role he supports GLY’s ongoing pursuit of positive development and champions new technology to improve processes. A Chicago native, Joe still roots for the Cubs but is more likely to be seen on the soccer field or swimming bleachers cheering for his three daughters.
