Ian Carpenter Sets Sail for Retirement After 26 Years at Callahan

After witnessing more than a quarter century of growth at Callahan Inc, Chief Estimator Ian Carpenter is ready to take his retirement. A recipient of the Callahan Estimating Hall of Fame Award, Carpenter was honored by his colleagues at a recent event.

Over the years, Ian has been a key resource for Callahan’s clients during the due diligence and preconstruction phases of projects. He contributed his knowledge and experience to many important projects like North Andover High School and Brown School Residences.

“His efforts have helped mold Callahan’s reputation as a firm that develops reliable estimates for owners,” said company president Patrick Callahan. “Ian has been known at Callahan as a patient hard-worker who was always willing to help people, whether it was with estimating or anything else.”

For nearly 20 years, Ian worked as a mentor to Frank DiCenso, Senior Estimator. DiCenso recently explained that Ian doesn’t plan to sit idly at home and relax during his retirement.

“He’s looking forward to doing some work on his houses and spending time volunteering at the local animal shelter,” said DiCenso. “He takes in as many as four dogs and a couple of cats at any given time at his home.”

Callahan extends its best wishes to Ian on this new chapter in his life. After 26 years at the firm, his retirement is well deserved.
