Q&A: What’s something interesting about you that isn’t on your resume? “I am an avid personal and professional development reader and often read multiple books simultaneously. I have played in several poker tournaments and crashed in the Main Event in the World Series of Poker.”

After a career at Exelon and custom home-building, Greg Sawka came to Wilmington-based Bancroft Construction almost by chance after answering an ad. Starting as an assistant project manager and rising through the ranks of the firm to oversee operations and preconstruction, Sawka was named president and CEO in 2010. Since then, he’s helped the construction firm parlay successful expansion projects at the University of Delaware and Longwood Gardens into fruitful long-term relationships with both, including as part of a bid group on UD’s STAR Campus. Sawka also opened offices in Princeton, N.J., and Salisbury, Md., to expand Bancroft’s geographic reach.
