Looking forward to another three decades of success, PWGC is announcing that our founder and executive chairman, Paul W. Grosser, PhD., PE, PG, has retired from the firm after 33 years. Over the last five years Paul G, as he was referred to around the office, had ceded the responsibilities associated with President and CEO titles to Paul K. Boyce, PE, PG, and James Rhodes, PG, who is now PWGC’s COO.
“I am enjoying my retirement and look forward to pursuing my many hobbies,” said Grosser, who is an avid sportfisherman and has begun playing golf. “I have great confidence in the firm’s new management and its future.”
“I’d like to thank Paul Grosser for all he has done on behalf of PWGC for the last three decades,” said PWGC President and CEO Paul K. Boyce. “His mentorship has helped prepare me to lead PWGC into the future.”
“Paul’s positive influence on PWGC will be felt for years to come,” noted PWGC COO James Rhodes. “We wish him all the best in his retirement.”
Between the two of them, Paul Boyce and James Rhodes account for more than 60 years of experience working on behalf of PWGC. That experience and knowledge of the firm has allowed for a seamless management transition and will allow the continued growth of PWGC in the New York Tri-State region.
To ensure a seamless transition, PWGC had taken a number of steps to prepare for Paul Grosser’s retirement, including the successful establishment of an employee stock ownership program (ESOP), which now owns the majority share of the firm.
