Jennifer Pinck, Boston ABC, MBA, MCPPO, was one of the first women to break into the construction industry, working in the building trades in the late 1970s and as a field engineer and construction superintendent on commercial projects and historic renovations in the early to mid-80s. She earned an MBA from Simmons Graduate School of Management in 1986, the same year she received an ABC Boston Building License – becoming the first woman in Massachusetts to do so. Jennifer was among the few women in management positions for the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority’s Boston Harbor Project – a $4 billion court-ordered sewage treatment plant, and the Big Dig – one of the country’s most complex, and heavily scrutinized public works projects.
In 1998 she founded Pinck & Co., Inc. – a real estate development and project management services firm, which provides nonprofits, institutional clients, and public entities with planning, design coordination, construction management, and comprehensive development consulting services. The firm has managed over 6 billion in construction and has won numerous awards — including being named one of the fastest-growing private companies by Inc. magazine, earning a place on the Inc. 5000 list for 2016 and 2017. Pinck & Co. has also been recognized as one of the fastest-growing inner city businesses – a distinction given by the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) and for the second year in a row in 2018 , was named to the ICIC Inner City Hall of Fame, which honors firms that have received the award five times or more.
Jennifer has also been actively engaged in community and civic affairs. She served as Vice Chair of the City of Cambridge Zoning Board, Loan Committee Member of BlueHub Capital, Board Member of the Associated General Contractor of MA, Vice Chair of the Boston Center for the Arts, among others
In 2018 Jennifer was honored by Engineering News Record with the New England Region Legacy Award. She was also honored by the Boston Business Journal that same year with a Trailblazer Award.
In August 2018 Jennifer sold the company to a new national firm, Anser Advisory and is now serving in a Strategic Business and Client Service advisory role.
