Meet: Jake

This month’s employee spotlight features Jake McNary. Jake works in Nello’s “war room” as an estimator and bids each project with a Goonies-like mentality because “Goonies never say die.” While his background includes project budgeting and being a union carpenter (L.U. 84), Jake’s primary responsibilities include vendor relations and keeping Nello’s field operations team busy.
