Angela Simon


President  |  Western Allied Mechanical

 

Angie has been a leader in the Bay Area construction industry for many years. Starting as a young 22 year old project manager in the late 80’s, when there were very few women in construction, to becoming the president of a $70 Million Mechanical contracting firm with over 220 people. She has taken on the challenge over the next 4 years to elevate the awareness of women in construction. She formed a Women in Construction Leadership Committee within National SMACNA (Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors) to work with both the contractors and the Union to encourage and promote the role of women in sheet metal.

Angie was honored to be asked and excited to accept the position of National SMACNA Vice President. She will go through the chairs and in 2019 will be the first ever woman National President for SMACNA which represents over 1800 contractors in the US and Canada.
She has committed to continuing to mentor not only within her own firm, but on a national level as well, hoping to encourage women to get and stay involved in construction.

As current President of Western Allied Mechanical – a premier HVAC contractor in the Bay Area employing over 200+ people – Angie has increased the volume of business to over $35 Million. She is responsible for many successful projects including The Packard Foundation Net Zero Head Quarters, SLAC – Science and User Support Building (awarded DBIA award) and Stanford SESI Energy improvements.
