STERLING HEIGHTS Mich. – June 21, 2023 – Roncelli, Inc. – one of Michigan’s largest construction services companies,  with operations in the U.S. and Canada – today announced recent changes to its executive leadership team.

Effective Jan. 1, 2023, Gino Roncelli has been named the company’s new president and CEO.  He continues the family legacy created by his grandfather, Skip Roncelli, who founded the company nearly six decades ago.  The growth of Roncelli, Inc. has been nurtured throughout the years by Gino’s father, Gary Roncelli, who has retired as CEO but retains a position as chairman of the board, and Tom Wickersham, president emeritus and current board member, whose career with the company spans more than three decades.

“It’s a proud moment to see my son, Gino, a third-generation of the family, take the helm as president and CEO of the company,” said Gary Roncelli.  “He has truly grown up in this industry, and his passion for the business, commitment to the mission and culture of our brand and dedication to customer service, are a combination for certain success.  I look forward to the great things he’ll surely help us accomplish as he steps into this new opportunity.”

As president and CEO, Roncelli is responsible for overseeing the firm’s internal operations, strengthening customer service relationships, maximizing the firm’s performance, driving company culture and ensuring the firm achieves its financial goals.  Prior to his role as president, Roncelli, a LEED®-accredited professional and licensed attorney, served as vice president of Roncelli, Inc.  Before that, he was principal and general counsel with the company.

Roncelli, who has more than a dozen years of construction services experience, is a graduate of Wayne State University Law School and the University of Michigan, where he earned a BBA degree in Finance from the Ross School of Business.  A passionate supporter of Detroit, he enjoys volunteering with The Parade Company, the Boll Family YMCA and other city-based NGOs.

In additional c-suite promotions, all part of a transition to the company’s next generation of leadership, James (Jim) Carnacchi, Paul Day and Jereme Poxson, each have been promoted from their roles as director to positions of vice president.  Carnacchi is now serving as V.P. of Estimating, Day is V.P. of Construction Operations and Poxson is V.P. of Healthcare.

“Jim, Paul and Jereme represent the best that our company, and our industry, have to offer,” said Gino Roncelli.  “Their collective experience is unmatched, and individually they each bring to the table a unique set of talents and passions.  In their new executive leadership roles, I know we can expect nothing but great things for Roncelli’s future.”

As Vice President of Estimating, Jim Carnacchi is responsible for Roncelli’s bidding strategies and achieving the firm’s yearly estimating goals.  Additionally, he also oversees the firm’s trade partner network, relationships and prospects.  Carnacchi, who began his career with Roncelli in 1995 as a junior estimator, is a graduate in Construction Management from Ferris State University.  He is LEED® AP certified and holds a Michigan Builders License.

Paul Day, Roncelli’s new V.P. of Construction Operations, provides guidance and leadership to planning, schedule management and staff development.  He also supports the firm’s overall project operations and performance, ensuring critical goals are met and client expectations are exceeded.  Day boasts 33 years of construction industry experience, nearly 30 of them spent with Roncelli, where he began as a project engineer.  He earned a master’s degree in Engineering Management from Oakland University and a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from Michigan State University.

Roncelli V.P. of Healthcare, Jereme Poxson, is responsible for developing and nurturing the company’s healthcare market segment.  For more than a decade, Poxson, who joined Roncelli in in 1998 as an estimator, has focused solely on healthcare construction and its unique complexities.  Poxson graduated with a background in Construction Management from Western Michigan University.
