Employee Spotlight-Meet Bud Stewart

Meet Bud Stewart


 

Start date and current position with Dayhill Group: I joined the Dayhill Team in January of 2010. Currently, I manage the Funds Control Division.

What I like best about working for Dayhill Group: The spirit of comaraderie. Knowing that I’m working with people who care for me, and I for them, motivates me to work my hardest.

Best job I ever had: As a teenager, I worked as a ticket taker at Philadelphia’s Veteran’s Stadium. The pay wasn’t very good, but I was able attend all the Phillies and Eagles games free of charge.

Worst job I ever had: I worked as an apprentice pipefitter. Backbreaking work, but I learned what I DIDN’T want to do the rest of my life.

Favorite place to live: Growing up in South Philly, there was always a street hockey game I could join in, even in the summer time. When I got tired of hockey, which didn’t happen often, I could always play “halfies” or “wire-ball”.

 

I’m happiest when: I’m able to spend time with family and friends.

What I fear most: I would never want to disappoint people who rely on me.

I’m Proudest of: When I look at the quality people who voluntarily associate with me (i.e. friends and business partners) I know I must be a pretty good guy.

Favorite sports or pastimes: I love to fish, but I seldom find the time to. I also love to read history.

Motto or Personal Mantra: “I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.” ― Helen Keller

The Top 3 Highlights of my Life:
1) June 20th, 1992 – The day I married the love of my life.
2) August 8th, 1994 – The birth of my lovely daughter
3) I’ll have to update this one frequently. While I’ve experienced many exciting events, and met some wonderful people, I’m looking forward to seeing what great things the future has in store me.

People would be surprised to know these things about me:
1) I hate onions
2) I am a numismatist, and I specialize in Roman Denarii.
3) I was a recreational pilot, but gave it up when I discovered how this hobby of mine terrified my fiancé (now wife)

If I could do it all over again, I would: I don’t think that way. The best thing about making choices is that you’ll never know what horrors waited down the path you chose not to travel.

Pet peeves: Let me put my bag down and take my jacket off, before hitting me with million questions.

Favorite song, movie, book, or comedian:
Song: Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Hear”
Movie: Monty Python and The Holy Grail
Book: George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty Four”
Comedian: The Marx Brothers

 

Favorite Memory: January 11, 1976 – At the invitation of the team, I attended a players & family only party held by the Philadelphia Flyers to celebrate their victory over the Russian National Hockey Team. – I was just 14 years old.

Best vacation: Surf Fishing on Cape Hatteras

Favorite vehicle: Subaru Forester, of course.

If I were a super hero, my name would be: The Budanator

Before I die, I would like to: Visit Europe

Despite Record Spending On Public Projects, Contractors Still Struggle

Public construction projects legally require a contractor to post a Performance and Payment Surety Bond, which is a barrier to many contractors seeking to win public projects. A bond is a tool used to protect taxpayer dollars from the contractor’s mishandling of project funds, or project failure. Between contractors who are new to public work and those whose financial integrity is in question, there are a lot of contractors who are struggling to secure the necessary bond programs needed to operate their companies. However, there are solutions designed to help contractors obtain bonds and win projects. Tools like Funds Control are a perfect solution to protecting against the greatest risk faced during construction, while still being able to use the most qualified contractor for the job. Besides the obvious protection for the surety or the bank, the contractor in Funds Control can continue to grow their business, and secure their future and hopefully outgrow the need for Funds Control. “In this economy, the lack of cash flow causes job borrow, which ultimately can lead to project loss. This is the biggest risk surety companies and public entities face,” said Kevin Deasy, CEO of Dayhill Group.
