Lane Leadership


 

Robert E. Alger

President & Chief Executive Officer

Bob has been in the construction industry for more than 35 years, all with Lane. The combination of his executive expertise and standard of excellence has been instrumental in the growth and success of the company. Since assuming his Presidency, yearly revenues have nearly quadrupled. The company’s domestic geographic footprint has also vastly grown, as Lane went from a company located primarily in the Northeast part of the United States, to now being a U.S. construction leader. Noteworthy awards include the Outstanding Project and Leadership (OPAL) Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) in 2013, and the Moles Award for Outstanding Achievement in Construction in 2011.
