-- CEO and Chairman of leading Northern California construction company Joseph J. Albanese, Inc. (JJA), Kevin Albanese announced he is transitioning away from the company to pursue other interests. After taking over as President and CEO in 2014 after his father passed away, Kevin and the committed JJA team grew the company into a thriving business ranked in 2020 as one of the top family-owned businesses in Silicon Valley by the Silicon Valley Business Journal. Carrying on this family legacy, his brother Phillip Albanese, President and COO, will replace Kevin as CEO.
"As a result of our committed and professional team and coupled with Kevin's leadership, we are poised for great things to come," said Phillip Albanese. "We wish him and his family the best in this new chapter of their lives."
Kevin has been recognized for his leadership and contributions to the industry and the community. Recognitions include being recognized as Silicon Valley Power Executive by the Silicon Valley Business Journal, top 20 under 40 by the Engineering News Record, Businessman of the Year by The Silicon Valley Organization, and Business Honoree by the Operating Engineers Local 3 Community Service Fund. Kevin lives in San Jose with his wife Julie and their two sons, Connor and Aiden.
"I'm looking forward to the break and being able to spend more time with family, pursue other interests, and figure out what's next," said Albanese. "Taking over after my father passed and leading this company has been a true honor. Although the pandemic slowed down plans for my transition, as we head into the end of the year, business is thriving and the timing is right to pass the baton."
