Rhonda Rosenof is the CCO (Chief Canine Officer) at Big Dog Construction Services.
Rhonda’s entrée into construction in 2014 marked the beginning of a new “fork” in the road on her well-traveled path. While Dave ensures the quality of the work in the field, Rhonda tirelessly works behind the scenes. Rhonda’s experience in training, information technology, project management and marketing enable her to effectively manage the back office functions.
Rhonda is responsible for operational processes and technology, hiring and training, as well as lead management and marketing.
Building on her expertise in education and training, Rhonda is now spearheading “Big Dog U,” a comprehensive training and development program for our employees.
Prior to Big Dog, Rhonda spent twelve years as senior sales executive at the Life family of magazines, Parkland/Coral Springs Life, Coconut Creek Life and BocaDelray Life.
Rhonda began her appreciation for the power of computer technology more than 30 years ago. In the mid-80’s she evaluated educational materials and developed specifications for converting paper-based content to online learning for Knight Ridder newspaper’s Viewtron service, a pioneer in online services. The service was suspended after just a couple of years when a lack of enthusiasm for the service led to a prediction that computers would not be a threat to print newspapers!
After leaving Viewtron, Rhonda moved to Ohio to become Technical Training Manager at CompuServe, another early online service provider. She designed and delivered self-study and instructor-led courses, trained instructors and coordinated personal computer and technical training programs.
Rhonda spent ten years as Program Director for national conferences on the topics of technology and training. These large-scale, feature-intensive events boasted over 3,500 yearly attendees, 17 program tracks and more than 300 educational sessions per year.
She then moved on to e-Commerce where she wore an extensive range of “hats” for an e-Commerce development company and collaborated with clients to build their web-based businesses.
Rhonda’s love for technology and process improvement has led her to develop enterprise database systems and procedures that have optimized operations everywhere that she has worked, including now at Big Dog.
My passions for processes, technology, and training drive my ongoing pursuit of operational excellence.
Rhonda serves on the Board of Directors for the Associated Builders and Contractors Institute. Her community involvement has included service on the Executive Board of the Parkland YMCA, as a Girl Scout Leader, Vice President of Color Guard at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, and on a variety of committees at Congregation Kol Tikvah. As a member of the Parkland Coral Springs Business Group (PCBG), she was on the planning committee for their annual “Kick Back and Give Back” networking and fundraising event. As a key contributor to this effort, she helped to raise more than $30,000 for local charities.
Rhonda holds a B.S. in Learning Disabilities and an M.S. in Computer Education.
“We’ve been working with Dave and Rhonda from Big Dog Construction Services for most of the Southwest Airlines project at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport. They provide semi-skilled and skilled workers for various general trades work including clean-up, escort for unbadged workers and support for work back-charged to other subcontractors. Throughout the inevitable last-minute emergencies and curve balls thrown at them, Rhonda has been especially organized providing the manpower and documentation necessary to keep things moving. We look forward to working with the Big Dog team again soon!”
Big Dog worked as a CBE partner to Hunt/Moss JV.
“Rhonda and Big Dog made my kitchen renovation painless. Their professional staff defied all the perceived norms — they arrived on time, met all the deadlines, used highly skilled sub-contractors, left the site clean at the end of each day, and ultimately created a final product that exceeded my expectations.”
“Wow, Rhonda, what a productive and great day here today! Thank you! Everyone was on time, thorough, and efficient. Wonderful teamwork! Tom was excellent as was Korban and the plumbers. Ricardo, bless him, magically cleaned up our daughter’s bathtub. What a difference a few days make! Only problem is that our parrot, Rosie, is now in love with Tom and is still whistling for him. Even though a lot if it was hard for our autistic daughter, everyone was taking care to accommodate her special needs. That is heartwarming and appreciated very much by us.”
