  1. I’ve been watching e-Builder for +20 years long before I was an employee, and it’s amazing to me to see a technology company still run by the same 2 brothers who founded the group. Ron (and Jon) are never just “phoning it in”. Ron is actively involved in managing this company and inspiring his employees on a daily basis. Ron sends out a weekly company newsletter that is personally edited by him — and we all look forward to receiving each Monday. He runs a monthly all-hands meeting where he clearly and concisely communicates our top initiatives and reaffirms the company vision. At a point in his career and the company growth where he could easily hand over the reins to a VP team, Ron has his heart on the line every day for e-Builder employees.

  2. Ron makes it a point to make every single employee a personal friend. He truly cares about the well being of all employees and does everything in his power to make us feel cared for and respected. Not only are his cultural values incredibly present every day, but his intelligence in his field is outstanding. He takes the time to truly understand the most complicated parts of the construction industry as well as the technologies we are building to help this industry. This allows him to make the best decisions for all of his clients!

  3. If I could have given Ron 6 stars on culture I would have. It is so important to him that the company represent our values consistently that he has made it core component of all levels of organization training, it is worked into most departmental and company meetings, and is incorporated universally into all employee goals. Second, Ron is a masterful executor. We are fanatical about clearly defining and communicating goals at all levels of the organization and focusing on achieving those.

  4. Ron has done an amazing job building a small, niche software vendor into an industry giant over the last 20 years – bootstrapped! He leads by example – his high energy and positive, never-say-die attitude filter down through the company. Most of all, he’s approachable, humble and cares personally about the employees at his company.

  6. In most companies I’ve worked for, the CEO is usually not in-touch with the employees. Ron Antevy is very different though, as he wants to know the employees by name and on a personal level. You get a genuine sense that Ron Antevy truly cares about all of the employees, and wishes the best for them.
