Rene Olivo

Vice President of Operations

Rudolph and Sletten, Inc.

A drive down State or Union streets in downtown San Diego during parts of December may have served as a clue: Rudolph and Sletten is keeping busy in moving San Diego's new courthouse forward. But that job is one of a number of 2014 accomplishments Rudolf and Sletten — and the company's vice president, Rene Olivo — has to look back on with pride.

The market for construction has been changing, Olivo said, and he knew it was coming through 2014.

When developers like Westfield Corp. started making good on plans for expansions, Olivo knew the opportunity was there. Olivo's anticipation of the change helped Rudolph and Sletten take it, as showcased in the firm's recent award on a contract for significant concrete work at one of Westfield's planned expansions, its mall at UTC.
