Lori Rosenthal, vice president, principal and group leader at GRAEF’s Milwaukee headquarters, started as a project structural engineer at the firm nearly 30 years ago. She now oversees the facilities group, the firm’s largest and fastest growing division. 

Rosenthal also serves as a representative on both GRAEF’s pandemic committee and the company’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council.

Rosenthal is also an elected member of GRAEF’s board of directors and is involved in various growth initiatives for the firm. 

“She is ambitious, high-achieving and always on the go,” Kissinger said. 

Rosenthal travels the country to develop and maintain client relationships and mentor developing staff on best practices, how to run efficient meetings and how to navigate project-management financial systems.

“Lori is a sought-after mentor and has influenced the lives and careers of many, both men and women at GRAEF,” Kissinger said.
