At Joseph J. Albanese, Inc., we are committed to getting the job done safely with relentless and deliberate execution. Our team is devoted to bringing the highest level of quality to every project we do for our clients.

Alexis Susnow,
Project Executive

I love that Joseph J. Albanese is a family-owned company. The CEO knows by name each one of his nearly one thousand employees. You definitely don’t feel like a number here.


Alexis started as a project engineer in 2013. Over the past eight years, she has been promoted four times, from senior project engineer to project manager to senior project manager to her current position as project executive. Alexis brings her own special touch to managing projects and getting them done safely.

“Women often bring a problem-solving attitude to an old-school industry. Our diversity of thinking helps solve problems.”

Whittney Williams,
Project Manager

“Women often bring a different mindset to construction, including positivity, creativity and attention to detail. We embrace new technologies and create new solutions to get the job done.”


Whittney joined as a project engineer in February 2020 upon graduating from college. Growing up, she lived in several developing cities and enjoyed watching the buildings going up. Today, she manages projects from the ground up and plays a key role in seeing them built.

“When men and women work together, we find revolutionary ways to build any type of construction.”

Vanessa Aspera,
Project Manager

“Whether it’s project management or field jobs such as carpentry, there are lots of opportunities for women in construction, especially here at Joseph J. Albanese.”

Vanessa joined as an intern in 2019. Upon graduation from college, she was promoted to project engineer when she formally joined the company. She was recently promoted to senior project engineer. The first college graduate in her family, Vanessa is proud of her accomplishments but even more proud of her contributions to the community.

“Women are generally great communicators, which is a great skill in construction as you work with a lot of people both internally and in the field crew.”

Kiera Mezzetti,
Senior Project Manager

“As a family-run business, our company management understands when I need to care for my children and also trust that I will get my job done. This means the world to me.”


Kiera joined as an intern in 2013. Since then, she has been promoted three times, from project engineer to senior project engineer to her current position as project manager.

Mother to two young children, Kiera appreciates the company’s flexibility so she can take care of her children’s needs and still get her job done.

“Construction is great career for women because of its opportunities for long-term success. At Joseph J. Albanese, you also get the opportunity to grow and be promoted.”

Advice to Future Women in Construction:

Don’t feel intimidated. It’s all about your attitude and how much of a go-getter you are.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Ask and learn.

There are mentorship programs to help you learn and grow in construction.

Be a sponge! Everyone here is willing to share and help you.

Be open to new ways of doing things. Apply what you learn to different projects and different situations.

Learn from the experts. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.

It’s challenging but rewarding. You get out of it what you put into it.
