Colleen Martindale has built a HOME in the pre-construction group at McCarthy while creating a path for other women in the construction industry. 

In this episode of The Zweig Letter podcast, we speak with Colleen Martindale. She is the Senior Pre-Construction Director with McCarthy based in Dallas, Texas. With more than a decade and a half of experience, Colleen has found success in a historically male-dominated industry.  

In her words, “When you look up the org chart, and nobody looks like you, that can be pretty intimidating.” 

She started in the intern program at McCarthy and has never looked back.  Colleen and her pre-construction group get to work on earthworks, bridges, energy projects, and so much more. She has had the chance to gain face time with many of the leaders at McCarthy as several members of the company's C-suite are based in the Dallas office.  

According to Colleen, women make up 25 percent of the organization at McCarthy in all phases of the business. She said that they are trying to make sure that McCarthy is the employer of choice for everyone. 

Tune in to hear this and much more on this episode of The Zweig Letter Podcast.
