Project Executive

Vince Arriola

Vince has been with the PNG Builders family for the entirety of his professional career. He started as a carpenter’s apprentice and truck driver in 1994, becoming a union carpenter journeyman and foreman, followed by PNG project superintendent, then senior project superintendent, where he remained for over a decade. Although Vince was offered many opportunities for advancement during this time, he chose to stay in the field and to have a more balanced work-life environment, as he prioritized time with his growing family and his continued ability to stay active with his young children’s endeavors.

As his children grew more independent, Vince decided—upon family consultation—that it was time to accept the challenge of promotion. In 2015, Vince became a project and account manager at one of PNG’s highest profile clients, after which he and his team exponentially grew the work volume, and Vince was soon recognized for his diligent client relations, financial success, and leadership. Vince quickly ascended to senior project manager, then a promotion to his current roll as company executive. He also serves on the company Board of Directors and the Executive VFT.

Vince credits his success to his desire for leaderships responsibilities, as well as his hard work, dedication, drive for excellence, the mentorship received over his career, and his love of collaborating with staff, clients, subs, and design teams. He is grateful to have developed professionally at a company like PNG Builders, where team members are afforded the opportunity, latitude and training to grow. Vince’s personal motto and team-culture goal is inspired by Henry Ford: “coming together, working together, succeeding together.”

Vince is an avid sportsman and community service activist; he volunteered as a Little League head coach for almost two decades. He served eight years as president and chairman of the board of Claremont All American Football, and was recognized by the City of Claremont for his service and leadership.

In his free time, Vince loves to travel. New Orleans, New York, Maryland, Memphis and San Francisco are some of his family’s favorite US destinations. Vince is also into all things cars and music. He enjoys working on his hot rods and going on drives and road trips–especially if those trips end at a Dodgers, Lakers, or UCLA football game, or a concert, festival or river rafting trip. Vince is also a former DJ, and still enjoys mixing it up (on vinyl, of course). He resides in Claremont, CA with his wife Terri Ann. They have four children: Jessica, Vincent Jr, Cameron, and Ethan.
