Bret Silvestri

Senior Consultant

Business Development, Preconstruction & Operations

BRET SILVESTRI got his start in the construction industry in 1989 then helped a large general engineering contractor expand into the Bay Area. Building on that success, Bret founded Silvestri Construction, completing numerous projects of all sizes in and around the Monterey, CA, area, and in the process, built a strong reputation for quality, rigorous management, innovative construction solutions, and excellent customer service. This reputation led to many other opportunities, including being an integral part of the project team that renovated Monterey Peninsula College, helping a large general contractor expand into Monterey, and founding a construction management firm. 

Bret now splits his time between advising contractors on growing their businesses and helping facility owners manage their construction projects from concept through project delivery and ongoing maintenance. Bret’s diverse experience gives him a unique perspective when advising contractors on business development, preconstruction services, organizational structure, and all aspects of operations.  

In addition, Bret is the Past Board Chair of the Monterey Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, serves on the Monterey Peninsula College Foundation Board, is past Director for Sacramento chapter of CFMA, and is a proud Rotarian.
