“I’ve worked with Loretta for 27 years and this is a fantastic acknowledgement that you can build a company on the foundation of stewardship,” said INTREN Executive Vice President of Customer Solutions, Matthew Turk. “She has always inspired us to do business differently and she continues to set an example to her 1400 employees to do the same. Our goal at INTREN is to be the company of values and integrity she wants us to be.”
