La Salle University has announced IMC Construction, based in Malvern, Pa., will be the inaugural recipient of The Lasallian Impact Award. Robert Cottone, President and CEO, will receive the award on the company’s behalf.
The Lasallian Impact Award, which honors an organization whose core values are similar to the University’s, will be presented at La Salle’s 25th Annual Charter Dinner on March 25, 2017 at Normandy Farms in Blue Bell, Pa.
“I am very delighted to have Robert accept this award on his company’s behalf,” said La Salle University President Colleen M. Hanycz, Ph.D. “Not only is IMC a leader in its industry, they are committed to the common good and the dignity of others through sustained community service and civic engagement, much like La Salle is.”
IMC is the fifth largest construction manager in the Philadelphia area, the seventh largest in Pennsylvania and has built over $5 billion worth of commercial projects in the region. The company has been recognized by Philadelphia Business Journal for its Community Impact Award—Most Philanthropic Company, as a Best Place to Work, and Top 10 General Contractors. SmartCEO Magazine also recognized them as one of the 100 Best Run Companies.
After a decade of running his own firm, Cottone joined IMC in 1986 as a project manager and worked his way up the ranks to his present position as President and CEO. He has personally spearheaded over one billion dollars’ worth of development and construction in the healthcare, education, retail, and commercial markets throughout the country, tripling the size of the company. Under his leadership, IMC’s construction volume exceeds $300 million annually.
Cottone founded and is the Director of the IMC Charitable Foundation, which was established to support educational, humanitarian, and non-profit institutions. He oversees the IMC Volunteer Program, which encourages employees to take up to five days away from the office to perform community service. Over the years, IMC employees have donated their time to organizations such as the American Heart Association, Habitat for Humanity, USO, and Walk to Defeat ALS.
In recognition of his many professional and community impact achievements, Cottone was named the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year and the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce Business Person of the Year. He also is a recipient of the Boy Scouts of America Cradle of Liberty Good Scout Award, Chester County Community Foundation Social Investment Award, and an Echoes Call to Care Honoree.
