Building a Better Way Since 2000

Maria is responsible for identification and analysis of The Weitz Company’s transferable risks; development of risk mitigation programs, policies, procedures and tools; and procurement of all insurance programs (including captive, surety and claims). She moved into the risk management department in 2009 after 10 years working in operations managing high-end clubhouse construction projects.

Prior to joining The Weitz Company, Maria spent seven years in commercial construction administration roles in Ecuador, South America, where she worked for local construction firms that built condos and commercial projects such as the World Trade Center – Guayaquil.

What makes Weitz such a great place to work?
So many things! Our people are wonderful … they make work feel like your second home. That is important when you consider the hours we spend at work. At Weitz, our company culture and core values are not just in print. In 17 years at Weitz, I have experienced what it means to “live out” our core values. I have seen tough decisions made at all levels by asking a simple and honest question: “What is the right thing to do?”

What is one thing everyone should know about The Weitz Company?
The Weitz Company offers more than 160 years of experiences, expertise and innovative solutions for construction projects. We go out of our way to ensure our customers and partners have the best experience during the process and are delighted with the final product.

Something unique or interesting about me is …
I am fluent in English and Spanish … something I am thankful to my parents for and that has been very useful in my personal and professional life.
