TRACY FORREST - FOUNDER

Since founding WPC in 1974, Tracy guided WPC along a successful path of strategic growth with a focus on renovations, timeshare resorts, hotels, senior living facilities, and apartment complexes. Tracy grew the company to become one of the ENR 400 largest General Contractors in the US and one of the 200 largest privately-owned companies in Florida. Throughout his over 50 years in the construction industry, Tracy fostered an environment of continuous improvement amongst WPC employees. In 2007, he sold a majority of the company to his brother Jeff Forrest and three other partners. Although he has not been involved in the day to day activities for many years, he retained a minority share in the company and provided guidance and counseling to his brother, his partners, and employees, some of which have worked for him for more than 40 years.

 

Tracy Forrest (70 years of age) passed away on October 12, 2020, from an aggressive form of brain cancer.
