In our continued effort to recognize some of the industry’s leading ambassadors, Commercial Construction & Renovation‘s first CCR Awards pays it forward. This issue highlights four women, nominated by their peers, who not only help continue the indusry path forward, but also play vital roles in their communities. In November, we will salute men doing the same.
Betsy Sears Sullivan
Director, Business Development & Marketing
Inherent Commercial
Engaging. Energetic. Hard-working. As Director of Business Development and Marketing for Inherent Commercial, Betsy Sears Sullivan has earned all of those accolades, and more.
With more than 11 years of sales and marketing experience, she took on her role at Inherent—an Indianapolis-based full-service construction manager/general contractor—to be able to combine her love of commercial real estate and building relationships. Along with her industry responsibilities, her community work includes an initiative she spearhead for a new community development department, which continues to grow brand awareness and build goodwill within the Indianapolis community. Other projects Betsy worked on included A Greener Welcome, performed in collaboration with Eli Lilly and Company.
When she is not working, you can find Betsy with her husband and kids hanging in their front yard with friends, family and neighbors.
Lauren Kriner
VP, Business Development
Capitol Construction Services Inc.
In an industry bent on the power of connections, Lauren Kriner continues to make her mark as great connector of people. As VP of Business Development for Capitol Construction Services for nearly eight years, she works with myriad industry professionals—including brokers, business owners, property managers, designers and retailers—to coordinate construction projects. Capitol Construction specializes in office tenant finish, ground-up retail centers, restaurants and auto dealerships.
Along with her construction team, Lauren ensures projects are completed in a timely manner, with high-quality, at a competitive price. In addition, she oversees all of the company’s marketing efforts, including website, social media, association involvement and construction site signage. Her promotion efforts include Capitol’s monthly e-newsletter as well as weekly real estate email blasts.
In her free time, she is active in groups like IndyCREW, where she is a past-president. She also is a volunteer for St. Augustine’s Home for the Aged and serves on the facilities committee at Cathedral High School.
Stephanie Roldan
Corporate Lean Manager
Rosendin Electric Inc.
Twenty one-plus years into her career and Stephanie Roldan continues to be a pioneer—one who takes the moniker of trailblazer to new heights. Known for her creative, fearless leadership style, she is not afraid to try innovative methods to tackle age-old industry problems. Her secret weapon: She keeps a keen eye on technology.
As Rosendin Electric’s Corporate Lean Manager, Stephanie trains and educates her team on the value of the process. She also is an advocate on personal and professional growth, working closely with groups like Junior Achievement (JA), where she is a current member of the Junior Achievement Ladies Day to Play committee.
Her accomplishments and accolades include being an “2020 ATHENA Awards” nominee, “Lead Up For Women’s Trailblazer,” and founder of Rosendin’s Women in Construction Affinity Group. Stephanie also spearheaded the CoreClarity at Rosendin, along with being involved in charitable organizations like Arizona Foundation for Women and The Casa.
Chelsea Thompson
VP of Operations
Rebar Development
When it comes to excuses, Chelsea Thompson does not accept them. To get the job done, she believes you must rise to the expectations of the job—whatever it is. A seasoned construction professional, she has carved her niche overseeing public and private sector projects.
As VP of Operations at Rebar Development, Chelsea currently manages more than $70 million in projects, seeing them through development, design, entitlement, pre-construction and construction. Her day-to-day responsibilities include managing all of the company’s construction partners and projects on behalf of ownership and the investment teams.
Growing up in the industry on job sites and construction trailers, Chelsea has always been a natural when it comes to the job. She believes it is exceptionally important to normalize women being in project meetings, making decisions, walking the jobsites, being in the job trailers, and wearing the construction site boots and hardhats.
