    The Build Up Podcast Featuring Atul Apte, CEO

    Posted on January 12, 2024

    Check out our CEO, Atul Apte, CCM, LEED AP, DBIA, on the latest episode of The Build Up with Kyu Jung, Co-Founder of Procon Consulting! 

    “You're a media company first, a fill-in-the-blank company second.” That's just one of the insights Atul Apte shared on the latest episode of The Build Up. While at this year's CMAA National Conference, Atul and Kyu sat down to talk about how the construction industry's people problem remains and what smaller firms like Procon and APSI Construction Management, can do to compete for talent alongside the industry's biggest names.

    Message shared by Kyu: “You never stop (networking)…you’re always building new bridges.” That was just one of the many poignant quotes from Atul Apte, CCM, LEED AP, DBIA, CEO of APSI Construction Management when I had him on the The Build Up.  He summarized perfectly how we met at the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) conference in 2017 and how we’ve both chosen to approach business.  Rather than viewing everyone as a competitor, we’ve built a real connection and collaboration. It may feel like a risk at first, but you learn with time that the real risk is everything you miss out on trying to do it alone. Thank you Atul for all the great wisdom you shared on the podcast. Nearly every line was quotable and I really enjoyed our conversation. Whether you are a business leader, work in the construction industry, or just need some good life advice, this episode is well worth your time.
