25 years ago, Loretta Rosenmayer started Trench-It, a small trenching company with four employees and $15,000 borrowed from a close female friend who believed in her dream. Today, she is a leader in the development and execution of premier design, construction and management solutions for electric, gas and renewable energy construction services. Trenching is only six percent of the business and accordingly the name was changed in 2009 to INTREN, incorporating its core value of integrity as the core value into her business. As CEO Loretta leads more than 850 men and women she calls strong and proud and has revenues of over $250 million. Throughout the years, Loretta has maintained the belief that giving back to the community is vital to her as well as a core tenet of the company. She has given back to hundreds of organizations through service, support and monetary donations, touching organizations in McHenry County, Illinois, and across the Chicago region.
