Pen Wolf

Early in his career Pen recognized that projects with strong relationships between stakeholders were distinguished by more reliable outcomes, higher customer satisfaction, less conflict and were far more personally rewarding. However many in the AEC industry didn’t have the same view. When presented with the opportunity to move from construction management to owner representation, and a position where he could have more influence over how projects were managed, he jumped. More than 15 years on Pen has represented Cleveland Clinic on dozens of capital projects totaling several billion dollars, including the Miller Pavilion and Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi. He has been a key player in developing the way Cleveland Clinic delivers capital projects; Owner lead, high performance teams characterized by respect, trust, transparency around a shared mission.

Pen is a Civil Engineer by education, a project manager by profession and a collaborator by nature. He is active in the Construction Owner’s Association of America, Lean Construction Institute and COGENCE Alliance.
