Eric Ziegler joined John Gallin & Son in 2009 as estimator after spending more than 10 years working as a consultant in the financial industry. As a consultant Eric performed thorough analyses of client procedures to develop solutions that exceeded his clients’ expectations. Eric’s analytical capabilities and attention to detail, as well as his work ethic, have transferred well to the construction industry. As an estimator, Eric prices jobs for budgets and bid proposals. He acquires a detailed knowledge of the construction documents, determines which trade groups will be involved, and discusses the job with subcontractors to ensure an accurate scope of work is presented to the client at a competitive price.
Eric joins a long list of Zieglers to work for John Gallin & Son. His great-grandfather and grandfather were both carpenters for the firm. His father rose up too from carpenter to become a partner and VP of Estimating and Purchasing. His brother, Walter, is currently the Vice President of Estimating and Purchasing. The Zieglers are one of several families with a legacy of multiple generations at Gallin.
