Gilbane Honors Grant Goebel with Core Values Award
On April 14, Controller Grant Goebel was recognized at Gilbane’s annual Business Unit dinner as the 2016 recipient of the Greg Honzo Core Values Award. This award was instituted in Greg’s name to honor the Cleveland or Columbus Business Unit employee who illustrates Gilbane’s Core Values with their professional and personal lives and who continually exceeds expectations through their dedicated service to the company.
Grant Goebel has been in the construction industry for more than 28 years and joined the Gilbane team in 2007 as a controller. Grant was named Vice President in 2009 and has an MBA in business administration from the University of Missouri. Grant is a dedicated leader who exemplifies honor and integrity in every aspect of his life. Over the years, he has been committed to a one company approach and is always quick to lend a helping hand to other offices and even take on international assignments.
“Grant’s knowledge of our overall business, management strategies and accurate financial reporting are exemplary. His guidance, leadership and commitment during the last several years have been instrumental in our success. I am grateful to have him on our team and he certainly represents the true meaning of the Core Values Award!” said Brett Meyer, Vice President
Vice President Scott Orr also added “Grant is a true champion for Gilbane and his knowledge of our financial systems and commitment to accurate and honest reporting is outstanding. Grant always goes out of his way to make sure we understand our financial responsibilities with his instrumental leadership to keep us all in line and looking ahead. Grant is always willing to put in the extra hours, committed to helping everyone learn the financial side of our business, and a great overall person that I enjoy working with every day.”
At the dinner, Grant was very moved by the recognition. He noted, “As you all know, being a controller can’t be done without a team effort, and I really appreciate everyone on this great team.”
The Core Values Award was created to honor Greg Honzo who was a project executive in Ohio and loyally served Gilbane for more than 25 years. Greg passed away in September 2007 after a three-year battle with breast cancer.
