After more than 25 years in construction management and eight years with On Center Software, President Cecilia Padilla has announced her retirement, effective Oct. 28, 2016. During her time as vice president and president, Padilla has reinvigorated On Center’s focus on construction software that increases efficiency, accuracy, teamwork and ease of use for the spectrum of construction trades. She served on the company’s executive Vision Team, a think tank on the future of construction automation. She introduced the industry’s first cloud-based platform – Oasis Takeoff and Oasis FieldCenter.
"It has been an honor and privilege to work with all of you during the last eight years. I’ve seen your growth as individuals and as a team, and I am confident in the choice I made for my successor, Angelo Castelli.”
Angelo M. Castelli becomes On Center president on Oct. 28, 2016. He joined On Center as sales manager in 2003 after 10 years as chief estimator and project manager with Western Reserve Interiors of Cleveland, Ohio. He rose through management roles at On Center to Chief Operations Officer most recently. Castelli was instrumental in the creation and deployment of business development and plan room programs. As a direct result, On Center Software is used in over 200 academic institutions as required curriculum for construction management degrees. As member of the Vision Team, he is a great proponent of a cloud-based software platform and the real-time collaboration it brings to construction.
“Coming from construction, Cecilia and I share the same passion for what On Center Software does for construction companies. It makes contractors’ jobs easier, and their companies more profitable,” Castelli said. “We are excited for her and look forward to hearing about her global travels during retirement.”
“Our focus has always been to take care of our customers. We receive tremendous satisfaction when contractors tell us how we have helped their businesses. It is at the core of On Center’s culture. You know that Angelo, and every On Center employee, carry that attitude,” Padilla added. “You are an amazing group, and I will miss working with you every day.”
