INTECH announced a key ownership milestone today with the promotions of Phil Moses to President and Blaise Lutz to Chief Financial Officer. Beginning in 2012, INTECH co-founders Craig “Sab” Sabatino and Will Schwartz elevated new principals from within the company’s ranks. This perpetuity transition ensured that the firm would continue to be held from within, growing and evolving as a privately owned company. In the ten years that followed, this strategic transition plan saw principals take on key leadership roles, increasing INTECH’s accountability to its clients, and growing revenues through successful projects. Based on this success, Sabatino announced today that he will step into a chairman role, executing the next step in INTECH’s ownership transition, by promoting Phil Moses, Principal and Vice President, to the role of President, and Blaise Lutz, Principal and General Counsel, to the role of Chief Financial Officer. These promotions represent a milestone achievement in company management, as INTECH shifts to its second generation of ownership and remains Philadelphia’s largest locally owned construction firm.
“The promotions of Phil and Blaise reinforce the success of our strategic planning and consistency to steward INTECH into the future,” said Sabatino. “I step back with full confidence that Phil and Blaise will carry forward INTECH’s values, its company culture, and its drive toward innovation in a seamless transition. Our clients and teams have appreciated their leadership over the years and I’m sure will join me in my enthusiastic endorsement of their – and INTECH’s – future success.”
“I appreciate the trust this promotion demonstrates,” explained Moses. “As a longtime INTECH employee, I understand the vision set forth by Sab and Will when they founded the company. I am excited about the potential that, together with my partners, we can bring a new leadership perspective to our shared values of safety, excellence, diversity, community, and sustainability.”
Moses joined INTECH in 2004 as a project manager. He has led significant INTECH projects for Episcopal Academy, the Museum of the American Revolution, the Philadelphia 76ers, and the University of Pennsylvania. He oversees INTECH’s pre-construction department, including estimators, marketing and business development staff, and the company’s diversity and community engagement initiatives. Moses also sits on the University City District board of directors. He holds an M.B.A. from the Pennsylvania State University and a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Villanova University.
Lutz oversees risk management, legal, finance, accounting, and human resource departments. He joined INTECH in 1996 as an accountant, left the firm to attend law school, and returned as general counsel. He holds a J.D. from Temple University Beasley School of Law and a B.S. in Accounting from Villanova University.
“From his earliest days with INTECH, Blaise proved himself through dedication, hard work, and ability to manage many of our most critical financial and operational tasks,” said Sabatino. “Phil and Blaise understand the values and vision of INTECH and I trust them both to continue to grow and evolve the company.”
