About the Founder
Jennifer Pinck was one of the first women to break into the construction industry, working in the building trades in the late 1970s and as a construction superintendent for a major Boston construction firm in the 80s. She earned an MBA from Simmons Graduate School of Management in 1986, the same year she received an ABC Boston Building License – becoming the first woman in Massachusetts to do so. Jennifer was among the few women in leadership positions to work for two of the country’s largest, most complex, and heavily scrutinized public works projects: the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority’s Boston Harbor Project – a $4 billion court-ordered sewage treatment plant, and the Big Dig – the most technologically challenging highway project in the country’s history.
In 1998, Jennifer identified a growing niche in the industry and was one of the first firms to begin providing owners and developers with project management oversight for their construction and renovation projects. Pinck & Co., Inc. was launched with a mission-based focus to help build better communities and primarily serve the affordable and senior housing markets. Today, the firm has a diversified and robust portfolio that includes construction and renovation projects in the education, health care, multi-housing and institutional sectors.
Jennifer has been featured in dozens of news articles and as a keynote speaker for numerous events and workshops. She has been recognized for her accomplishments as an entrepreneur, mentor, and community advocate. Among her many honors, in March 2018 she received the AGC MA's BWiC Mentor of the Year Award. Pinck & Co. has grown every year for the past 20 years, has managed more than $5 billion in construction value, and has won numerous community and industry awards for its growth and accomplishments.
“The New England Center and Home for Veterans undoubtedly made the right decision to partner with Jennifer (Pinck & Co.) as Owner Project Manager for our $35 million construction/renovation project. Jennifer brought a depth and wealth of knowledge that went beyond our project. She had the ability to look several steps ahead and identify the potential problems and find the right way to solve them."
