Edward DeAngelis, President of EDA Contractors, Inc., was named the Top Leader of a mid-sized company by The Inquirer. This special award was given in conjunction with The Inquirer’s 2020 Top Workplaces.

“I have confidence in the leader of this company”

EDA Contractors was rated the #3 mid-sized company in the 2020 Top Workplaces survey, and DeAngelis’s leadership was singled out as a reason for the employees’ satisfaction. One innovation that DeAngelis brought to his company was to implement emotional intelligence training for all employees, both in the field and the office. In 2020, EDA Contractors was able to keep projects going during COVID-1 response, and figure out ways to work safely, as well as avoid furloughing office staff.

From The Inquirer:

In the stereotypically macho world of roofing, EDA Contractors stands out. Edward DeAngelis, a La Salle College High School and St. Joseph’s University grad, founded EDA in 1999, after about a decade in the roofing business. Today, he leads an all-local workforce in installing roofs from Maryland to New York. What makes the company stand out is its intentional cultivation of culture, exemplified by DeAngelis’ implementation of emotional intelligence training for all employees.
