Steven P. Kelly


Steven has had a lifelong commitment to commercial construction. His storied career, which began at iconic Payton Construction as a young Project Manager, achieved a milestone when, in 2002, he acquired Timberline Construction. Since then, he has built the firm into one of the Top 20 Construction Firms in Massachusetts according to the Boston Business Journal and Engineering News-Record.

Under Steven’s leadership, Timberline distinguishes itself as a best-in-class enterprise with a dynamic environment and can-do spirit that attracts team members with high aptitude and clients with high expectations. Steven’s construction expertise, financial management sense and sharp interpersonal skills compel him to approach every client engagement with the utmost attention to detail and client satisfaction. His positive approach, enthusiasm and strong principles are important assets that inspire effective teamwork among all Timberline team members.

Steven continuously invests in the company to best serve the firm’s clients and attract new ones. His commitment to clients is to deliver big company experience with smaller company care and attention. He recruits only the ‘best of the best’ talent; highly sought-after industry professionals with expertise in business, customer service and construction operations. He is committed to continuous company advancement in technology and training, understanding that to maintain a best-in-class team, we must constantly self-evolve to keep pace with the demands of an ever-changing marketplace.

The spirit of Timberline is evidenced by Steven’s philanthropic dedication, immersing the company in various charitable causes that emotionally empower the team with generosity and compassion while supporting those in need.

Steven inspires his team by providing an exceptional work/life balance. He is passionate about two things in life, delivering excellence to his clients at Timberline, and his true joy, his family. Steven has taken great enjoyment in coaching and mentoring his children and many others throughout the community, including his greatest pride and joy, his daughter Rachel in softball and his sons Drew and Steven Jr. in hockey.

Exceptional. No exceptions. That is the position statement of Timberline Construction. But more importantly, that is the way Steven conducts his life, professionally and personally.
