Valerie Peterson, Project Coordinator

Valerie joined the team a year and a half ago. She was highly recommended by her son, Richard Peterson, Gramercy’s Vice President (pictured below with his mom). Valerie spent her career as an insurance broker and realtor. She felt like she needed more stimulation and wanted to grow in her career.

In her role with Gramercy, Valerie handles our insurance, bonding and recently began taking on another role, assisting our project management team with their projects.

She is a hard worker and always willing to learn new things. Outside of work, she is blessed with two sons and one granddaughter. In her spare time she likes to walk, hike, bike, dance, and paint. Thank you Valerie, we are grateful to have you as a part of our team!

Teamster Tomasz Zajac

Tomasz has been driving for Gramercy for a year, although he has a long history working in construction. Beyond driving, Tomasz has been an asbestos supervisor and still maintains all of his licenses.

He says he likes doing something different everyday so that’s one of the reasons he enjoys construction and driving. Tomasz is the youngest of eight children and moved to the US from Poland at the age of 16. He met his wife, who is also from Poland, here in America. In his spare time, he enjoys hiking, snowboarding and biking.

Thank you Tomasz for being a part of our team!

Joseph DePaola, Project Executive

Joe joined the Gramercy Team in 2021. Joe is our project executive on our DEP Throgs Neck Pump Station Project. We are so appreciative of his knowledge, experience, hard work and what he has added to our team.

Besides being a hard worker, he has a great sense of humor and has brought much-need laughter to the office. In his spare time Joe loves spending time with his beautiful wife Phyllis and their two girls. 

Joe wanted to share his thoughts as well:

“It’s a privilege working with an organization that acknowledges and appreciates hard work from its employees. The team at The Gramercy Group is energetic, smart and dedicated. The owners are a pleasure to work for as they treat their employees with respect and work hard to create an atmosphere that promotes loyalty and success” 

Thank you Joe, for being a part of our team!
