Stephen Abadie

Team Leader

With a desire to leave a powerful and positive impact on the world—starting with the city around him—Stephen joined RNGD in 2015 as the Infrastructure Division’s Assistant Project Manager. Now, as Team Leader, Stephen uses his 17+ years of professional expertise in major infrastructure and civil construction to lead a team of 85+ employees in talent development, lean project delivery, and execution of production systems, delivering quality products for RNGD’s diverse client base.

Stephen was drawn to RNGD’s entrepreneurial vision and “actions beyond words” approach. In his day-to-day, he directs his team on safety, quality, and production for all current and future projects. He enjoys leading a diverse group of personalities that span generations, learning from those with decades of experience, and mentoring the next generation of construction talent. By rebuilding New Orleans’s aging infrastructure, he knows the impact his work makes. Apart from driving change in his work, Stephen is a recipient of the Absolute Integrity 2019 Core Value Award and a two-time RNGD Fitness Competition Winner.

A native of New Orleans, Stephen graduated from Louisiana State University with a degree in Construction Management. Both construction and building relationships are his true passions, but when he’s not in the office or on-site, Stephen’s with family or spending time outdoors hunting or golfing. When he finds the time, he indulges in a good book or article about world history.
