CASTINE, Maine – Maine Maritime Academy (MMA) President, Dr. William J. Brennan, has announced that Peter G. Vigue, chairman and chief executive officer of The Cianbro Companies will address the graduating class at the college’s 68th Commencement on Saturday, April 30, 2011, at 11 a.m., in Alexander Fieldhouse. Vigue, a 1969 graduate of Maine Maritime Academy, will receive an honorary doctorate from the college. “Pete Vigue exemplifies the talent and drive so typical of many of our graduates,” said Brennan. “His leadership of the Cianbro Companies is significant in that the company’s values of hard work, customer service, and respect for its workforce have not been compromised with growth. It’s a company that the people of Maine can be proud of and we are pleased that one of our own is providing such exceptional guidance. He’s also a tremendous citizen and it is time for us to recognize that by honoring Pete in this way.” Vigue joined Cianbro in 1970 in an entry level position after having served as a merchant mariner. His experiences in project management and senior company management have transformed him and Cianbro into pioneers within the construction industry. An advocate for workplace safety, Vigue incorporated it into the company fabric, integrating it into Cianbro’s total quality management plan, and later expanding it to include the health of all team members

"What they didn't understand is that Cianbro has a secret:our people," said Vigue. "Our people were ready, willing, and able to take on this challenge. And, with two completed rigs to their credit, they were right."
