Frontier Celebrates A Decade of Employment

Since December, 2003, John Marshall has been Frontier Construction’s Controller. He is ultimately in charge of all of the accounting aspects of Frontier: budgeting & forecasting, overseeing payroll, company investments, overseeing project accounting and financial planning.

John Marshall, Controller

“Growing up in Pennsylvania, I knew from an early age that I liked working with numbers,” remembered John. “Since running time-cards for my father in a textile plant in my younger years, I always knew I wanted to be an accountant. That early dedication and focus helped me in college and to prepare for the CPA exam.”

John graduated from Clarion University of Pennsylvania with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and earned his CPA in 1998 after moving to Chicago.

When John moved to Chicago in 1995, he began his career in the construction industry working for two large architectural firms as project accountant and assistant controller before he began his career with Frontier.

“I was ready to make the next step up in my professional career and be accountable for financial decisions,” John recalled. “I was very excited to join the Frontier team 10 years ago because it gave me the chance to step up professionally and grow with a great company.”

“The bottom line is always in John’s mind,” said Frontier President, Greg Parr. “He’s helped us focus and manage costs better in order to be a more profitable company. I look forward to another 10 years with John!”

“We’ve grown and evolved so much since I started,” said John. “I’m looking forward to another 10 years of growth and success with Frontier!”
