New Herrero Builders President Mark Millitello Champions Culture of “Always Learning, Always Teaching”

San Francisco Herrero Builders, a San Francisco-based general contractor and leader in Integrated Project Delivery, Lean construction, and Value Creation, promoted Rick Millitello to President. The promotion is part of Herrero Builders’ plan for strategic growth, underpinned by its commitment to value integration and an award-winning culture.

Millitello has more than 40 years in the construction industry. Since joining Herrero in 2018 as Knowledge Area Leader of Operations, Rick has overseen Herrero’s continued success in the healthcare, education, and commercial sectors, and has been instrumental in the firm’s expansion into life sciences.

“As a lifelong builder, I am truly honored and humbled to lead a company as authentic as Herrero. Their commitment to discovering and delivering collective value — for external customers and staff alike — is sincere,” says Millitello. “In addition to steering Herrero’s accelerating growth, I am committed to giving back and mentoring the next generation of construction industry leaders, just as others mentored me.”

As CEO and Chairman for the company founded in 1955, Mark Herrero will focus on continued development of firm culture and strategy, deepening industry relationships, and fulfilling Herrero Builders’ mission to “discover and deliver collective value better than anyone in any industry.”

“Appointing Rick as President aligns with our company mission. In fact, it fortifies and promotes it. His infectious drive to continually improve, to champion our ‘Always Learning. Always Teaching.’ culture, and his genuine respect for peers and colleagues makes him the right choice to lead Herrero Builders,” says Herrero. “I am grateful for the synergistic partnership Rick and I have enjoyed during his first three years at the company, and I am excited about the future. Together, we will continue our mission to discover and deliver value for all customers: owners, design and trade partners, employees, and all others in the real estate community.”
