Leadership

Messages from the:

Chairman of the Board & Treasurer

When Ralph H. White founded our company in 1923, his business was based upon solving his customer’s problems. And today, more than 95 years later, that same commitment to meeting our customers’ construction, operation, and maintenance challenges—whether an emergency repair at 2 o’clock in the morning or a multimillion dollar building construction—has established R.H. White as a Service Company.

Of course, this commitment to service is only possible because of our dedicated team of nearly 600 employees, the key to our many enduring customer relationships. We keep our people safe, provide them with excellent training and benefits, and give them the opportunity to succeed and advance. In turn, their depth of experience allows us to tackle the complex projects that have cemented our reputation as one of the premier construction firms in New England.

We proudly serve a wide range of market sectors, including energy, water, industrial, corporate, and institutional, giving us the breadth of experience to satisfy our customers’ needs in any aspect of their operation. We also have the ability to self-perform a significant portion of our work, giving us the ultimate control over critical activities, project quality and schedule certainty.

Our reputation might get us an introduction to a new customer, but it is our commitment to service that keeps them coming back to us time and time again. We would welcome the opportunity to deliver on our promises for you.

David H. White
Chairman & Treasurer

President & Chief Executive Officer

R.H. White has a great reputation and I truly believe it is one of the very best in the business because of our dedicated and hardworking people. I am honored and humbled to work with them every day as we develop great people and strong business relationships. We are solely focused on developing a zero-incident safety culture and exceeding the service expectations of our customers and the communities where we live and work.

Construction is a team sport and it is the professionalism, dedication and hard work of our employees that make us so successful. We have nearly 600 people who can individually and positively impact and enhance our safety, bench strength and project success rates. Our employees are true builders at heart committed to customer satisfaction, and they are safety champions, recruiters, and salespeople by the very nature of their engagement in the company.

I am proud to be this company’s CEO and look forward to paving the way for the future generation of leadership and many more years of success and development.
