Thomas N. Iovino                                                          2012 Member Award                Press Release

THOMAS N. IOVINO was born on June 15, 1952 in Brooklyn, New York. He earned both Bachelor (1973) and Master Degrees (1974) from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He started his career as a project engineer with J.D. Posillico, first working during winter and summer vacations, and later, upon college graduation, becoming a full time employee. In 1977, he joined Nanco Contracting in New York City, as a project engineer and then as superintendent and general manager.

In 1981, while continuing to work for Nanco, Tom formed his own company, Judlau Contracting, naming it after his wife, Judy, and his daughter, Lauren. In March 1983, he left Nanco to put his full efforts into Judlau. Starting with small sewer and water main contracts, within its first 15 years, the company’s annual revenues reached $50 million.

In recent years, anticipating the growth of niche markets, Tom has formed affiliate companies, which perform track construction, signal systems, traffic information systems and mechanical construction. Today the company has revenues in excess of $425 Mil.; has successfully completed over $1 Bil. in transportation and transit work; and is working on some of the most prestigious projects in New York City, including the major tunnel contract on the East Side Access project.

The Judlau Companies rank among the Top Ten Contractors in New York State, second in the Transportation category and eight among General Contractors in the region.

Tom has served as President of the General Contractors Association of New York; as a Member of the Board of Directors and Executive Committee of the New York Building Congress; as First Vice President, Contractors Division of the American Road & Transportation Builders Association; and as a Member of the Board of Trustees of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). He is a Licensed Engineer in the State of New York.

Tom’s achievements are not only in the construction arena. He puts as much energy into his philanthropic efforts as his work. He served as a weekly volunteer at Huntington Hospital for 20 years; has served as President of the Suffolk County Family Service League; and in 2006 formed the IF Foundation, a philan-thropic organization of which he is President.

Tom and his wife, Judy, live in New York City. In addition to his daughter, Lauren, he has a son, Michael, who will be 30 years old this month.
