On Tuesday May 8, Atlas lost its mentor and friend, Ted Kennedy. Ted was an Atlas Operating Partner, a distinguished engineer and an accomplished business leader. Perhaps most significantly, Ted was a man of enormous character whose moral clarity set a standard for all of us.
Ted was an understated leader who achieved tremendous success by virtue of great intellect, vision, a wonderful sense of humor and an innate understanding of the needs of those around him. We are far better at what we do as a result of knowing Ted and appreciating his lifelong commitment to workplace safety, training and upgrading workplace skills and proactive programs to identify and recruit women and minorities into the engineering and construction business. We have been incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from Ted and we will miss him immensely.
