Current Builders Announces Annual Holiday Fundraising Program

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -- Current Builders (www.currentbuilders.com) is proud to announce the launch of their 16th Annual Holiday Fundraising Program. This year, the goal is to raise $75,000 to donate to Toys for Tots, Habitat for Humanity, Rebuilding Together Broward, Best Buddies, and the Dolphins Cancer Challenge. The award-winning general contractor established a foundation in 2005 to increase their community involvement, and to date they have donated over $400,000 to benefit deserving nonprofit organizations and to fund scholarship programs.

"This year we are increasing our fundraising goal and challenging our employees and construction colleagues to help us donate even more to these deserving nonprofits," said Michael C. Taylor, CEO. "These events of the past couple of years have been detrimental for many local charities, so this time, we are encouraging giving with a company challenge."

Current Builders has launched a friendly competition among the employees to incentivize giving. The department or construction project that brings in the most donations will be rewarded with a day of Paid Time Off for its members.

Current Builders' spirit of giving is an important part of its company culture; however, it is not just an end-of-year tradition. The construction firm takes part in numerous activities throughout the year to further the community including mentoring high school students, offering free in-house education programs for its employees, and building homes for those less fortunate.

Current Builders Launches ESOP to Retain and Attract Top Construction Employees

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -- Current Builders ( https://www.currentbuilders.com/ ), an award-winning general contractor based in Florida, has announced an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) as part of the company's strategy to retain and attract top construction employees. The shortage of qualified workers in the construction industry continues to be a persistent national issue, but Current Builders' CFO Rick Colandreo believes that initiatives, such as his company's recently launched ESOP, will place his firm in an advantageous position to meet the tremendous demand for multifamily and mixed-use housing in Florida.

"According to the state's CFO, Jimmy Patronis, almost 1,000 people a day have been moving to Florida, so the need for new construction is enormous," stated Colandreo, whose firm has offices in both the east and west coasts of Florida. "To meet this demand, we felt that creating a benefit-rich environment for our employees was essential. After months of research and consulting with leading professionals in the realm, Current Builders is proud to have launched this employee stock ownership plan."

As CFO, Colandreo is tasked with long-term planning for the company, including succession planning and expanding opportunities for growth. After conducting a valuation of the company, reviewing past performance and the future potential, Colandreo and CEO Michael Taylor approached the partners about selling a percentage of their shares to launch the ESOP. The partners retained 51.2% of the company, therefore allowing 48.8% of the stock to be sold in the ESOP.

Credits will be allocated to employees based upon longevity and salary. Eligibility begins after one year of employment and is open to a wide range of employees, including hourly laborers, receptionists and all levels of management, as long as the key criteria have been met. This program is above and beyond Current Builders' already generous benefit programs which include a 401k, health insurance, disability insurance, life insurance and a bonus program.

"We chose an ESOP because it rewards diligence and loyalty," continued Colandreo. "Employees who remain with our firm long-term will reap tremendous financial benefits and will feel an even greater sense of pride because they are not just a person who works for a construction company, they are a part-owner of Current Builders."
