Congratulations to Illinois General Foreman Steve Arrigoni who just retired and a tremendous thank you for spending your last 13-years with INTREN!
Steve performed a variety of work for INTREN, mostly in faults, as well as cable replacement, storm response, cable injection, fiber, and overhead, as well as regularly attended community and stewardship events on the company’s behalf.
“Steve was not only a professional lineman fully committed to excellence in his craft and safety, but he was a great teacher and mentor to the young apprentices,” said Executive Vice President Matthew Turk. “He worked in a number of our school programs with the Junior Achievement organization of Will County and gave countless school demonstrations to motivate young people to get into the trade. Steve was always full of humor, always happy, and always willing to share. He will be tough to replace. We are so grateful he was part of our family.”
Prior to INTREN, Steve had worked for Local Union 9 since 1981 and for two other construction companies, first as a Journeyman Lineman, then a Foreman, then a General Foreman, where he worked primarily on URD distribution and CTA projects.
"INTREN gave me the empowerment to be myself and run work as if I owned the company," said Steve. "I wanted to be the best."
And, Steve, you were ‘the best’! We will miss you!
