MATTHEW BETTE

MEMBER

 

Matt has over 30 years of experience in the construction industry and has been responsible for the successful delivery of over one billion dollars of construction projects. Along with his brother Peter, he helps lead the overall operations of the company, including maintenance of client relationships and close involvement with major projects.

 

Prior to founding Bette & Cring, Matt followed in both his fathers and grandfathers footsteps in the civil engineering program at Manhattan College in Riverdale, NY. Matt then joined his family’s construction business, Barry, Bette & Led Duke (BBL) where he spent six years in various training assignments constructing many challenging projects throughout New York. He has served in most field and office positions. He was appointed Vice President and Division Manager in 1988 and moved to Ft. Myers, Florida where he opened the firms Southeast Regional Office. In 1993 Matt opened the firms Southwest Regional Office in Dallas, Texas. Under Matt’s leadership BBL became one of the largest Multi Family Builders in the nation.

PETER BETTE

MEMBER

 

Pete has been a fixture in the region’s construction industry- both building and heavy highway - for nearly 30 years.  With his brother Matt, he manages the operations and corporate functions of business, and is a hands-on leader that oversees all construction activities of Bette & Cring including project management, estimating, business development, safety, and quality.

 

Earning a degree in Civil Engineering from Merrimack College, Pete put his knowledge to work in the family construction business, Barry, Bette & Led Duke (BBL). Rising up through the ranks, he became a Vice President and Division Manager both the Watertown and Heavy Highway groups where he was responsible for project management, staff supervision, and construction operations.

 


HAROLD CRING

MEMBER

 

With over 46 years of experience in the construction industry, Harold is responsible for the successful delivery of construction projects from our Watertown, NY Office – covering  a geographical area that spans Northern New York: from Plattsburgh to the North; Rochester to the West; and Binghamton to the South.  He manages all facets of construction projects including acquiring work, cost control, safety, quality control, and client relationships.

 

Harold was part of the Bette & Cring team from its inception in 1999. For sixteen years prior, he was the Vice President of the Watertown Division of Barry, Bette & Led Duke Inc. (BBL). Getting his start in the construction industry in 1966, Harold has been a resident and active member of the North Country community for almost his entire lengthy career. Coming from a family-oriented construction background, there is virtually nothing that he has not been exposed to or any problem he has not been able to resolve.

 

Harold served six years in the United States Army as a Combat Medic and was honorably discharged in 1976 as a Specialist 5th Class. An active member of the community, Harold was Chairman of the Planning Board for the Village of Sackets Harbor for 8 years; served on the Board of Directors for General Building Contractors Association, (GBC) for 6 years; and is currently serving his tenth year on the parish finance council for St. Andrews Catholic Church in Sackets Harbor, NY.
