Vanir Construction Management, Inc., is one of the nation’s leading, privately-held full-service program, project, and construction management firms. Since 1980, we have tailored our services and teams to meet the needs and budget of clients in education, healthcare, justice, water/wastewater, public buildings, transportation and energy markets throughout the United States. Headquartered in Sacramento, Calif., Vanir has been ranked for more than 25 years by Engineering News-Record as one of the “Top 100 Construction Management Firms.”
I am Dorene Dominguez, Chairwoman and CEO of The Vanir Group of Companies, Inc. and its subsidiaries Vanir Construction Management, Inc. and Vanir Development Company, Inc. My beloved, late father, H. Frank Dominguez, founded the Vanir Companies in San Bernardino in 1964. He was a pioneer and entrepreneur, with a vision of a company with the highest ideals and practices in commercial and institutional real estate development. He also was a lifelong learner and firm believer in educational opportunities for all children. His passion for education was the catalyst for founding of The Dominguez Dream.
Vanir is a national leader in program, project and construction management and real estate development. I take great pride in our growing team of more than 400 talented, dedicated and expert executives, architects, engineers, construction managers, developers, contractors and support staff in 17 regional offices located in major cities throughout our beautiful United States. To date, Vanir has delivered projects worth more than $2.3 billion across the nation and in other parts of the world.
We continue to grow our geographical locations. Diversity is a strength of our company, getting to the best ideas and increasing profitability. Revenue continues to grow, while we raise the bar for client service, setting new records for excellence in every industry where we have a role.
At Vanir, our greatest asset is our people, encouraging and empowering our 400 employees at every level. As the CEO of this stellar group of companies, I serve on corporate boards to acquire more knowledge and ideas about Best Practices to advance to Vanir. That’s invaluable dialogue for a CEO. And, as a woman and a Latina, I hope that I can be a positive example and encourage and inspire other Latinas and all women to achieve their dreams and break through the glass ceiling in nontraditional roles.
Additionally, I am the board chair for The Dominguez Dream, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit I established that is dedicated to empowering children in underserved communities to achieve their full potential in literacy and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics). Through partnerships with school administrators, teachers and staff, areas of greatest need are identified and funded, such as science labs, computer classrooms, musical instruments and exposure to the performing arts.
