Day promoted to Chief Estimator

Allan Day was recently promoted to Chief Estimator at Brubacher. Allan has worked his way through the ranks at Brubacher and most recently was Project Manager/Estimator for Utilities. Allan said that he applied for the position of Chief Estimator because he was ready for a new challenge.

Allan shared, “During my time at Brubacher, I’ve felt that I can bring new vision to the estimating team.” When asked about his goals for the new position, Allan explained, “I plan to change the approach of the position by providing more support to the department at all levels. I also plan to work closely with the Director of Operations on process improvements that can impact the success of our bids and awarded projects.”  

Allan continued, “Lastly, one of my priorities is to level out the peaks and valleys in project awards so that we can ultimately improve employee morale and minimize employee turnover.” Allan recognizes that while he can’t make change happen immediately, he is committed to working with the leadership team to make the changes necessary to work toward this goal.

Allan has displayed several qualities in his increasing levels of responsibility that will help him in his new role. He set personal goals and made them visible so others could help him continue to grow, while also setting up repeatable processes that improved the efficiency of the departments that he worked with and made others' jobs easier.

When asked why he chose Allan, Rich Muller stated “Allan works hard to improve the company by looking for ways to streamline processes and procedures while focusing on generating accurate cost information that can be used for future projects. He is driven to help others succeed and grow in their roles, which has made him a great candidate for this promotion.” Brubacher is pleased to recognize motivated, life-long learners like Allan with new opportunities.
