Jeffrey Schuttler, President
Jeff began his time with Victor Construction when he was just a boy. With his mother and father trying to develop and expand the business, Jeff was assigned to the duties of a laborer. “Whether it was pushing a broom or transferring materials, it didn’t matter what assignment I was given. I wanted to be a part of the family dynamic that was fighting for the common goal. We wanted to become known to the Chicagoland area as a construction company that customers could rely and depend on for quality service.”  Now as President, Jeff oversees the management of the company. He has experience in all aspects of construction, from field coordination to the development and implementation of Victor Construction Company’s present management system. Jeff is also responsible for the overall management of preconstruction and construction phase services. Areas under his direction include client relations, cost control, estimating, value engineering, quality control, project coordination, negotiations, purchasing, and scheduling.
