Javier has been with PSI for almost thirty years and in that time has worked every job at the firm.

Although in his youth Javier thought he would go into architecture, after a year in the field, he discovered that he was fascinated by the process of construction and decided to change career paths. In 1993, he joined PSI, where Javier’s first position with the company was as a truck driver.

After a year of delivering materials for PSI, Javier moved into the apprenticeship program. While serving as an apprentice, he learned the roles of a foreman, and quickly appropriated those responsibilities to his skillset. Over the years he mastered each position and opportunity he was given, rising the ranks from Foreman to Superintendent, then to Project Manager and Vice President, ultimately becoming President of PSI in 2013.

Javier attributes his professional ascent to his attitude of progress. He consistently looks for ways to improve, to help the company, and to move forward. According to Javier, “If you’re doing the next job, you’ll end up there.” It was this drive to always do the next thing, and do it well, that put him on the radar of PSI leadership and ultimately landed him in the executive position.

Javier is proud to have had the opportunity to grow at PSI. He credits the mentoring and support from company leadership for his longevity with the company. Throughout his time coming up, Javier appreciated that management and leadership was always fair, setting clear expectations and offering a sense of security. He has made it a goal to maintain these values during his presidency.

Javier enjoys working for PSI in part because of its continued growth. The ESOP encourages every member of the company to be an engaged participant in the company’s success, and Javier is glad that there is always new work to be done to support and strengthen PSI’s success.

In his free time, Javier enjoys working on home improvements. Although he always finds new renovations projects for his house, he guarantees that he will finish it one day. Javier lives with his wife of twenty-five years, and they have two adult children. The couple is actively involved in their church, where Javier serves on the building committee and where his wife is employed.
