Stephanie Roldan’s involvement in the electrical construction industry began nearly 20 years ago. She began her career as a journeyman apprentice, rising quickly through the ranks to her final field position as a foreman. She joined the Rosendin team in 2004 as an Assistant Project Manager and was assigned to a complex, highly visible project at a large semiconductor manufacturing facility in Chandler, Arizona. The unique demands of this project became the foundation of Stephanie’s working knowledge of the processes and best practices for successful Construction Management. The success of this project was in part based on the development of her leadership skills. Stephanie’s promotion to Project Manager for additional projects for the same owner was swift and she has successfully managed multiple electrical base build and conversion projects since 2006. Stephanie served as a Senior project manager on a large-scale design-build project located in Mesa, AZ. Her primary responsibilities included assisting the design process, pre-construction coordination of the Architectural, Mechanical, and Electrical work, and managing construction for a significant portion of the project. Stephanie is currently serving Rosendin, as the Director of Lean Culture. In this current role, she trains and educates teams on the value of Lean construction and Lean culture. She has been an influential member of leadership as she has made Respect for people and Continuous improvement a focus of the enterprise and not just a project level goal. This focus can be found in her work as she teaches about personal and professional growth.
Stephanie lives in Tempe, AZ with her husband and three children. She enjoys playing golf and can be found using hip hop lyrics as leadership lessons.
