Hunzinger Construction Company is proud to announce that our own Joan Zepecki, Hunzinger’s Diversity and Community Outreach Coordinator, was awarded the Golden Champion Award for Leadership in Minority Business Development in the Wisconsin Construction Industry. The National Association of Minority Contractors awards professionals that exceed diversity and inclusion goals within the industry.
Zepecki is proud of Hunzinger’s $360 million worth of contracts with minority and women owned businesses, other contracts are with small or disadvantaged firms. Joan’s Hunzinger experience goes back to pre-construction of the Wisconsin Center and Miller Park projects. There she successfully worked with the owners, their boards, government officials, community members and subcontractors to develop successful inclusion strategies. She continues to build on those action plans ever since, with great results.

The National Association of Minority Contractors (NAMC) is a non-profit trade association that was established in 1969 to address the needs and concerns of minority contractors. While membership is open to people of all races and ethnic backgrounds, the organization’s mandate, “Building Bridges – Crossing Barriers,” focuses on construction industry concerns common to African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans.
