Tony Iannessa

About

Born in Chicago, Tony Iannessa is driven by the work ethic he inherited from his family, who immigrated from Italy in the early 1950s. Having built a foundation working in the trades, Tony’s roots in construction trace back to his youth, when he spent summers as a concrete laborer and interning with an electrical contractor.

After graduating from Indiana University, he gained over a decade of experience in Chicago’s construction industry, which he leveraged to form BIG in 2016. As founder and CEO of BIG, Tony leads the firm’s strategic direction and is responsible for organization’s sustainable growth.

Tony is an active member of Vistage and Chicago’s Economic Club, and serves as a board member of Susan G. Komen and the Sports and Pastimes committee of Riverside Golf Club. He is a founding member of an FMI Peer Group helping interior construction firms across the country sustainably expand their businesses profitably. He has been featured in Crain’s Chicago Business numerous times and has served in various board positions with Leukemia Lymphoma Society, National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame, Greater Chicago Food Depository and City of Hope.

When he isn’t working, Tony lives in Chicago’s Ukrainian Village neighborhood with his wife and daughter. He enjoys golf, cooking/dining, working out, and relaxing in Harbor Country, Michigan with his family.
