Gregg Preteroti Promoted to Chief Operating Officer At Songer Services — Initiative To Expand Heavy Industrial Contracting Footprint Underway

PITTSBURGH, Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Effective January 1, 2016, VP of Operations Gregg Preteroti will assume the position of Vice President and Chief Operating Officer (COO) at Songer Services in Washington, PA.  The promotion of the 12-year Songer veteran validates a renewed focus on expanding Songer’s well-known industrial contracting footprint beyond integrated steel maintenance and repair.

“I’m proud to take another step within the Songer Services organization,” said Preteroti. “We’re staying within the heavy industrial space, certainly, but are eager to prove that our integrated steel experience as an innovative general contractor with in-house engineers and a 100% Union Labor force offers advantages that other companies just don’t have.”

Songer Services, a fifth-generation heavy industrial general contractor known worldwide for heavy industrial installation, maintenance and repair for such companies as AK Steel, Arcelor Mittal and U.S. Steel, employs over 70 key management individuals, with annual revenues of over 100 million dollars

Preteroti will report to Songer President and CEO Joe Meneskie, who stressed that this type of career advancement is part of a long-standing corporate philosophy.

“We believe in training tomorrow’s leaders many years in advance,” said Meneskie. “Gregg has taken on roles of increased responsibility consistently for over ten years, and his twenty-seven on-site blast furnace repair projects have given him critical understanding and insight into both the operations and commercial view of our challenging climate.”

Preteroti credits the family-like atmosphere of the company, along with its attention to the hard detail work of project management and safety, as real difference-makers in current project negotiations.

“Songer Services is already under final bid consideration for heavy industrial jobs that will help us expand our footprint.  We’re excited to put all this talent, expertise and procedural knowhow to work for people who really understand what industrial construction is all about,” said Preteroti.
