Looking Back on 25 Years and Forward to the Next 25
After celebrating 25 years of building great things, DPR co-founders Doug Woods, Peter Nosler and Ron Davidowski reflect on setting out to build something different in an industry traditionally resistant to change.
D, P and R expressed the importance of balance and continuing to adapt quickly as the company continues to grow. Why? "Being both entrepreneurial and disciplined has helped us become one of the leading builders in the country. If we can maintain that balance through our next phase of growth, there is nothing we cannot accomplish in the next 25 years and beyond."
When employees asked what advice they would give the next generation of leadership, they said it was simply about having the “right whos in the right seats” and providing them with the right opportunities and monstrous challenges to continue to develop and grow.
Finally, when questioned if DPR has truly "made it" yet, Doug, Peter, and Ron responded with, "For us, there has been no single defining moment but a series of opportunities and challenges that have impacted the company DPR is today and made us stronger. Not quite sure if we’ve 'made it' yet, but one thing is for certain, we will never stop trying."
