Linda founded rand* in 1989 and was one of the only female leaders in the construction industry. Under her leadership, rand* has grown into one of the largest general contracting firms in the DC Metro area, with annual revenue reaching nearly a half-billion dollars. rand* has also expanded its national footprint by adding Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, and Denver offices.
Over her nearly 40-year career, Linda and rand* have won numerous awards and recognition, including over 200 craftsmanship awards, Top Workplace, 100 Most Powerful Women in DC, Most Admired CEO in Construction, and many more. Additionally, Linda continues to mentor and advocate for women in the construction industry, serving on the board of many industry associations such as Commercial Real Estate Women, International Women’s Forum, and Washington Building Congress.
“Employees and industry peers say her drive, resilience, and commitment have inspired not only those within her company but also her peers in construction and real estate. She has been particularly focused on supporting women in the construction industry, offering the type of guidance that wasn’t available to her when she started her own career. Because of her business accomplishments and her dedication to serve the design and construction community, ENR MidAtlantic has named Linda Rabbitt its 2022 Legacy Award winner.”
Linda is highly regarded as a dynamic and inspiring leader by her employees and a trusted partner to clients and peers. We are so proud of Linda’s accomplishments and look forward to continued success under her leadership.
