Lad Dawson Retires After a 45-year Career in Factory Housing & Commercial Construction

When Lad Dawson founded Guerdon in 2001, he did it with the vision of bringing commercial modular construction into the mainstream.


Whether you look at Guerdon’s ever-growing resume of successfully completed commercial projects, read article after article about the hospitality industry Betting on Modular Technology and factory production re-Shaping the Future of Construction, or simply drive through Boise to see the overflowing number of Guerdon modules pouring out of the factory, it is safe to say, “Lad’s vision has come to light and continues to become more prevalent each day.”

Positioning Guerdon on a strong course, Lad officially retired at a private company event attended by the Guerdon board and staff on August 4, 2017.
After a 45-year career in factory housing and commercial construction, Lad is looking forward to the next chapter of opportunities and interests. He looks forward to spending more time with his family and attacking his bucket list as aggressively as he has his most complicated business challenges.

Since taking the reigns as President & CEO in April of this year, Jerry Goodwin has continued to drive Guerdon’s legacy of success. He is leading Guerdon into its next chapter of growth while enhancing quality, efficiency and performance. During his installation address, Goodwin said of Lad’s vision, “It will be my mission and the mission of everyone here at Guerdon to continue to push that vision forward.”

Guerdon is currently working on projects for some of the biggest hotel chains in the world (including Marriott, Hilton, & IHG), affordable housing communities for low income families, major transit oriented apartment complexes that help aid a major housing crisis, and the first modular micro-suite apartment to be constructed in the Northwest. The future has never looked brighter for Guerdon’s modular technology and the growing role that Modular Technology will play in commercial construction.
