Jonathan Hornak Newest Partner at Cornerstone General Contractors
Cornerstone General Contractors is pleased to announce Senior Project Manager Jonathan Hornak as its newest partner. As a partner, Hornak will continue to further Cornerstone’s mission of providing people with their best construction experience.
Hornak started his career with Cornerstone in 2008 as an intern on the Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic project. After graduating with a bachelor of science in construction management from the UAA in 2009, he joined Cornerstone as a full-time employee. Hornak’s can-do-attitude and willingness to always take on more responsibility has taken him statewide to collaborate with project partners in Anchorage, Kodiak, Sitka, Valdez, Wasilla, Kotzebue, and elsewhere.
Over the last decade, Hornak has served in nearly every role that Cornerstone offers and has become an expert in healthcare facilities after managing numerous projects within the Alaska Native Medical Center, Alaska Spine Institute, Providence Alaska Medical Center, Providence Valdez Medical Center, and Alaska Regional Hospital. More recently, Hornak was inducted into the Class of 2019 Alaska Journal of Commerce’s Top Forty Under 40.
“We couldn’t be happier having Jonathan on our Leadership Team,” says Joe Jolley, president. “He has a long career of amazing projects ahead of him.” As a lifelong Alaskan, Hornak joins partners Joe Jolley and Michael Quirk, keeping Cornerstone an all Alaskan-owned company.
