About Us: Management Profiles
Ultimate Responsibility: The ultimate responsibility for all Triune employees is client satisfaction, safety, risk management, profit/loss, repeat business, and business development.
Vince Fudzie, MBA, CPA
Vince utilizes his wealth of experience in analysis, development and overall management in the overseeing of Triune. His vast experience in the construction industry began in 1988 as a business assurance consultant with Deloitte & Touche’s Real Estate Construction Group. With a Masters in Business Administration from one of the world’s top business schools, he was soon hired as a consultant in the business turnaround unit of Price Waterhouse-Coopers (PWC). At PWC, Vince was responsible for developing and analyzing extensive operational reconstruction plans, business plans and the final projection of commercial and residential construction firms in distress.
A decade later, Vince set out on his own with a vision to oversee a company that would incorporate the best practices of the multitude of clients he had served over the years. He was determined that Triune would not be your typical run-of-the-mill firm. Instead, it would be a company grounded in the necessary principles to achieve superior customer satisfaction while maximizing value for all. He wanted the company to base itself on a Relationship Oriented Approach (ROA©) to construction which would result in the highest quality for clients and positive experiences for the company.
Vince holds an MBA from the University of Michigan, a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) degree, BS in Accounting from the University of Washington, and is a Certified Insolvency and Restructuring Advisor (CIRA)
