Todd Guthrie

President (Colorado)

With a natural inclination for building teams, Todd established the Colorado regional office for the O’Neil family of companies in 1999. He grew up one of four sons with a father who put them to work renovating their home. In his younger years, Todd learned the value of hard work, camaraderie, and to take pride in completion. “Seeing WEO projects around town,” he says, “knowing we contributed to permanence throughout a city like Denver—that’s a feeling like no other.”

Over his 30 years in construction, Todd has excelled in specialties like strategic planning, risk management, and organizational development, but he considers his greatest reward that of achieving employee ownership of the company.

An ESOP, or Employee Stock Ownership Plan, is a game-changer for employees, and Todd believes that one of W.E. O’Neil’s values—“WE Own It” —uniquely captures how. To “own it” speaks to the individual’s commitment to every client, to valuing yourself as a team member, and to literally having ownership of the company itself. Todd strives to develop leaders who understand what a unique opportunity we have as employee-owners—both to grow as individuals and to achieve wealth.

I learned from Rich Erickson (former W.E. O’Neil President and CEO) the importance of being grateful, of shining a bright light on our people, and understanding how, by developing whole individuals, you develop a whole company.
