Joe Malone, Director of Operations for Heavy Civil, grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He completed his Bachelor of Science in Construction Management at the Del E Webb School of Construction at Arizona State University.

Joe got his start in construction in 5th grade. Joe’s dad worked on a lot of drill rigs and would take Joe to work with him. At a young age, he was around a lot of heavy equipment and as he got older, he would work summers at his uncle’s residential construction company doing roofing projects, small additions, and demos. During his junior year of high school, he visited Arizona for a college tour of Arizona State University. After he graduated high school, he moved to Tempe, Arizona to attend the Del E Webb School of Construction.

In 2006, Joe began interning at Haydon Building Corp with the takeoff department while completing his courses at ASU. Upon graduation, Joe was hired on full-time as a Project Engineer with the Civil Division. From there, he was promoted to Senior Project Engineer to Project Director, and most recently has been promoted to Director of Operations for Heavy Civil.

As Director of Operations, Joe has the privilege of providing leadership and guidance to Project Engineers, Project Managers, Project Directors, and Superintendents in the Civil Division at Haydon and is also very involved with the Summer Internship for college students. He strives to work with each team to make sure that the Haydon Fundamentals are upheld in every aspect of a project, from start to finish. Ownership is a fundamental value that Joe lives his life by and conducts himself professionally. Ownership for Joe means stewarding the “weight of leadership by taking ownership of decisions made and mistakes of the whole team,”.

When Joe is not helping to provide guidance and leadership to project teams, you can find Joe either traveling with his wife and daughter, outdoor hunting, building jeeps to rock crawl, or volunteering at a nonprofit organization.
