Employee Spotlight: Jonathan Costello

Kathleen Maxwell

Originally from upstate New York, Jonathan Costello set out to attend college at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge. After earning his Bachelor’s Degree in industrial engineering, Jonathan joined the Louisiana National Guard as an electronics technician, where he served in both Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm. When he returned to Louisiana, Jonathan got a job in the oil and gas industry, eventually taking on a project management role in offshore construction in the Gulf of Mexico. After 25 years in oil and gas, Jonathan desired a change. He had heard good things about Nashville and began looking for project management opportunities in the city’s booming construction industry. After meeting with the Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. family, Jonathan knew he wanted to be a part of the team, and the opportunity presented itself in January of 2017.

Current Role:

As a project manager, Jonathan works closely with the project estimator, project superintendent, general superintendent, and sheet metal lead to ensure that roof construction runs smoothly. “We are all working with the common goal of executing a project safely, per the specifications, on time, and within the budget,” says Jonathan. After he meets with his project management team, Jonathan works with superintendents to address any issues on current projects and to plan for upcoming projects. He oversees everything from the creation of work and safety plans to making sure that construction crews have the materials they need to do their jobs. Jonathan also works with a variety of clients, including property management firms, general contractors, building owners, and engineers to keep them up to speed on their projects. Because he doesn’t work on project estimates or pre-planning, Jonathan can focus all his efforts on project execution.

Why Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal Inc. Stands Out:

Jonathan loves the accessibility of executives and managers at Maxwell Roofing, especially in that it allows him to get answers to questions and to get issues resolved quickly. Jonathan attributes Maxwell’s flat organizational structure and informal work culture as a key factor in helping team members get things done efficiently. “At Maxwell Roofing, everyone works for a common goal with no agendas,” affirms Jonathan.

Personal:

Outside of work, Jonathan is an avid cyclist. Several times, he has ridden 100 miles in a day to raise money for charity. He also enjoys backpacking, hiking, and kayaking. Jonathan and his wife, Jena, have been married for 30 years. They have two sons, Ryan and Evan, and a brown lab/chow mix named Hershey. A true New Yorker, Jonathan likes Italian food and New York-style pizza.
