George Cullen and Jeannie Cullen Schultz

Real Estate and Development | Construction
JP Cullen & Sons | Janesville

George Cullen and Jeannie Cullen Schultz were named co-presidents of JP Cullen in 2020. The children of company chairman Mark Cullen, George Cullen and Jeannie Cullen Schultz represent the fifth generation of leadership for the Janesville-based contractor. The firm, which has more than 650 employees, has worked on several high-profile projects including the renovation of Camp Randall Stadium’s south end zone, the Milwaukee Fortress development, the Milwaukee Soldiers home redevelopment and Fiserv Forum’s structural steel.

Career advice: Both: “Our grandpa (our third-generation owner) taught us the most important person in the company is the person swinging the hammer. At JP Cullen, we are a field-first organization, and everyone in the company plays a part in making our tradespeople at the face of the work more efficient.”

Favorite restaurant: George: “Casetta Kitchen and Counter. I tend to order their daily special, and it is the best place in Madison for lunch.”

Fun fact: Jeannie: “I have won five competitive eating contests. Most of my competitive eating happened when I was 18 and under, thankfully mostly pie. However, I did enter a sauerkraut eating contest at Wauktoberfest in Waunakee five years ago. Despite video evidence that showed me as the winner, I received second place. I can tell you that I will never eat a warm can of sauerkraut in less than a minute ever again.”

As you enter your office, what would you choose to be your walk-up or theme song: Both: “As graduates of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and big Badger fans, it would have to be ‘On, Wisconsin!’”
