Under 40 In Construction: Raven Patterson


Construction Equipment congratulates Raven Patterson, assistant project manager of gas and specialty services, BF Joy. She is an Under 40 in Construction Equipment award winner. 

Raven’s involvement in fleet management at BF Joy ranges from managing equipment costs and utilization to internal reporting. Raven also developed a tracking system for rental equipment utilization and cost, eliminating unnecessary costs but increasing company-owned equipment use. This helped reduce BF Joy's rental spending by 15 to 18 percent, saving upward of $120,000.

“Raven went above and beyond her typical duties to help organize how the company reports internal utilization of equipment, decreasing friction between field supervisors and the office and increasing the accuracy of utilization reporting,” says Les Hill, CEM, fleet and facilities manager. “Her leadership helped the fleet make adjustments to better serve the crews in the field, increasing production for the company and improving equipment utilization because production teams have the right tools for the job."
