Say hello to Commodore’s 2024 Summer Interns!

Say hello to Commodore’s 2024 Summer Interns!

Each year, Commodore welcomes summer interns from universities across Greater Boston and beyond. From risk management and sustainability to project management and working on site, our newest team members will spend their summers diving deeper into the multifaceted world of construction management.

Natalie Kennedy has “had a hard hat on since she was a baby.” Growing up in a construction family, Natalie is now a rising junior at Villanova University, studying Civil Engineering with a minor in Real Estate. She has a natural inclination towards science and math and is passionate about the intersection of civil engineering with architecture, design, and sustainability. Natalie will be working with Paul Maneen, Project Executive, in our Institutional Group.

Precious Nkutu just finished her freshman year at UMass Lowell studying Civil Engineering. As a first-generation college student, she is determined to take in every opportunity and learn as much as possible. Her driving force in school and life is to thank her parents and show her family where she can go. Precious will be working with our Life Sciences group and is excited to work alongside other women in the industry.

John Bertoncini is a rising senior at Boston University, studying Film and TV. When he sent over a sample of his video work, Carol Roby, Senior Director of Learning, knew John’s film skills would be an asset to the team. John took a screen writing course and had to write a 50-page screenplay, which after rewrites and edits ended up being over 150 pages. An avid rugby player, John will be working with Commodore Academy and Human Resources this summer.

Max Sherman returns to Commodore Builders this year for a second summer internship. In addition to studying Business at Florida Gulf Coast University, Max decided to get his real estate license last year and has been working on building relationships with potential buyers. Last summer, Max worked alongside Mike Price and the QA/QC team. This year, he’ll be working with Commodore’s self-perform division, on a labor rate study and will be spending more time out on site.


Nakeeya Douglas is a rising junior at Wentworth Institute of Technology, studying Civil Engineering. Over the last year, she’s been learning about concrete and mixing it out in the field, as well as beams and their distribution of force. She’s looking forward to seeing how what she learned in the classroom applies on an actual construction site. Nakeeya will be working with our Corporate Interiors group in our Boston office.

Loeden Rodrigues is a rising senior at UMass Amherst where he’s studying Building and Construction Technology. Few people can trace the origin of their career trajectory to a single moment – but Loeden can. He was running track at UMass, and couldn’t practice outside due to the compromised air quality from the California forest fires. It was then that he decided to make a difference in the world by working towards a more sustainable future for the planet and for the construction industry. Loeden will spend the summer working with Mike Price, Director of Quality and Sustainability.

Kenny Stolgitis comes to Commodore from Quinnipiac University where he is a rising senior studying Civil Engineering. Growing up in a construction family, Kenny has always been focused on pursuing a career in the industry. He’s most inspired when his classes include designing foundations, analyzing soils, and exploring rock mechanics. Kenny will be working on the Veterans’ Home in Holyoke project in Western Massachusetts.

Vincent Cimini is pursuing his MBA at Boston College. He graduated from Boston College last spring with an undergraduate degree in Business Management and Leadership. Having been surrounded by attorneys his whole life, he plans to go to law school after completing his MBA. Vincent will be spending the summer gaining hands-on risk management experience with Mike Roche, Vice President and General Counsel.

Gregory Federico comes to Commodore from Penn State University where he is a rising Sophomore, studying Economics. He will be spending the summer working with Charles Services and traveling between project sites. He will be focused on productivity and efficiency – activities that are related to his field of economics and essential to construction management.
