Partner, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Information-Technology Officer
Mrs. Masi is responsible for the company’s financial oversight, information technology, and business administration. Under her financial leadership, Seawood has implemented sophisticated management tools for controlling costs of all company-wide construction projects. Betty also oversees banking and bonding-company relationships. Her financial prowess is at the core of the company’s growth from $3 million to more than $120 million in gross receipts.
In addition to her financial responsibilities, Betty is constantly advancing the firm’s IT and business administration systems. Recently, her team successfully completed a large data and mail conversion to a new cloud platform, ensuring that Seawood remains on the leading edge of technology. Betty also is in charge of the software platforms that run estimating, bidding, and project management. Beyond her daily responsibilities, Mrs. Masi is involved in all projects at some level - from attending and conducting owner-architect-contractor (OAC) meetings to negotiating contracts and change-orders. Betty has developed a priority-management structure centered around empowering management personnel to be self-sufficient decision makers, rather than having to rely solely on the typical chain of command customary of large construction companies. These management values have proven to be infinitely successful in achieving the company’s goal of excellence.
Mrs. Masi has more than 30 years of senior management experience following a successful career with IBM and American Express, where she reported to Ken Chenault, currently the CEO and chairman at American Express.
Betty is passionate about serving our community. She is chairperson of the Deerfield Beach Chamber of Commerce's Board of Directors, where she is working towards furthering the economic development of the city. Mrs. Masi also serves on the Economic Development Committee for the City of Deerfield Beach, as well as the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization’s COAT (Community Oversight and Advisory Team) for the new highway connecting the Sawgrass Expressway to I-95 on SW 10th Street. Betty is committed to helping those who cannot speak up for themselves. She is an advocate for Tri-County Animal Rescue and previously served as president of the board of SOS Children’s Village in Coconut Creek, where she remains an ambassador for The Village.
