BOSTON – April 14, 2022 – Kaplan Construction, a WBE general contractor and construction management firm providing comprehensive building programs across Greater Boston, announced today that Chief Operating Officer (COO) Jane Kaplan Peck has been named an Outstanding Woman by Boston Real Estate Times. One of 12 honorees, Jane was recognized on April 14th during a breakfast award ceremony at the Newton Marriott Hotel in Newton, Mass.
Following a management transition in 2014, Jane ushered the family business – one in which half of its employees had been with the company for multiple decades – into its second generation. As COO and majority owner of Kaplan Construction, Jane Kaplan Peck is responsible for the day-to-day operations and ensuring Kaplan’s financial security and viability.
- I am honored to be recognized alongside such strong and talented female professionals, and wish to congratulate all my fellow honorees. As the second generation of the Kaplan Construction family, I have been immersed in this field since a young age. My mother managed everything related to finance and administration – the role I now hold – and, from a young age, she taught me the business. Her continued lessons and guidance have been invaluable in who I am in my past, current, and future successes and I pay this forward to my employees today.Jane Kaplan PeckChief operating officerKaplan Construction
