PRESIDENT, Principal in Charge
When Ted Domuracki founded MAST Construction Services, Inc. back in 2001, he carefully selected the firm’s name as a nod to the mast of a ship, which bends under adversity, but does not break. In his role as principal, it’s that image that guides his philosophy in leading the company.
Domuracki’s strength is coupled with a keen ability to listen to the members of his team and the many clients they serve, being flexible, yet on task. He actively manages overall operations, development and strategic interests for the company’s growth, and is personally involved in all of its high-profile projects, meeting face-to-face with key executives and sharing his years of knowledge to the benefit of MAST’s clients.
Domuracki’s industry experience began, literally, on the ground. He has more than 40 years of real estate and construction expertise, including senior executive positions at some of the nation’s largest construction management firms. In founding MAST, a construction management, project management, owner’s representation, and distressed projects consulting firm, Domuracki and his team provide senior-level, hands-on services, partnering with public entities, institutions, corporations and developers through a high level of synergy and camaraderie to meet goals in timely, efficient and effective ways.
The firm’s notable clients include several Fortune 500 companies, for which MAST provided distressed project consulting, including more than 75 projects nationwide, spanning $250 million. Of particular note is the precedent-setting design/build delivery of the new $160 million High Tech High School in Secaucus, NJ, for which MAST serves as construction manager.
MAST has a legacy of overseeing prominent projects, including the World Trade Center Downtown Restoration Program, where Domuracki served as the liaison between The Port Authority of NY & NJ, Silverstein Properties Inc., Westfield and the Durst Organization. As well, Domuracki was the general manager for program integration at the World Trade Center Downtown Restoration Program.
Other clients of note include the Newark Downtown Core Redevelopment Corporation (NDCRC), for which MAST was the owner’s representative, including construction of the $400 million, 18,000-seat professional sports arena and entertainment center for the New Jersey Devils.
The industry has taken note of Domuracki’s many successes. His accolades include being named “Construction Manager of the Year” by the New Jersey Building Contractors Association in 1995 and receiving a construction industry “Good Scout Award” in 2000. Domuracki, an Eagle Scout for more than a decade, served as an executive board member on the Northern New Jersey Boy Scout Council. He also sits on the Capital Planning Committee for Hudson County Community College in Jersey City. Previously, Domuracki’s service to one of his firm’s Fortune 500 clients earned him a position on its Oversight Risk Assessment Committee.
Domuracki received a Bachelor of Science in Civil/Structural Engineering from Penn State University and a Master of Business Administration in Finance/Management from Rutgers University. His professional affiliations include the Construction Management Association of America, Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA), United States Green Building Council (USGBC), New Jersey Association of Counties (NJAC), and New Jersey Bankers Association (NJBA).
In addition to the pride he feels for all that his company has accomplished during the past 19 years and counting, Domuracki has a full personal life. He resides in New Jersey with his wife, Mary Ann, who is managing director at MMG Advisors, a Manhattan M&A firm, and their two daughters, Stephanie, a graduate of Lehigh University, employed as a staff analyst at Deloitte in Manhattan, and Amanda, who is a Boston University graduate and won an Emmy for her work in college television.
Jim Napolitano continues to build a reputation for excellence in client service, through his 19 years at MAST and over 20 years as a construction industry professional.
His affinity for and expertise in various project types—from schools and arenas to courthouses and correctional institutions—make him a standout member of MAST’s executive team, as does his talent with technology.
In addition to a technical expertise in computer programs, which allows for a smooth flow of project information, Jim has a superior command of technical devices like drones, which he often uses to photograph projects, much to the appreciation of project owners and clients. Younger staff also have keyed in on Jim’s digital know-how as a way to stay ahead, increase productivity and enhance efficiency. In all, Jim strives to ensure that his clients and colleagues have what they need to make everyday life easier, such as using a mobile tablet for on-the-spot picture-taking or for the mark up of electronic plans and drawings.
As a professional that makes the most of challenges, Jim takes pride in seeing projects under his leadership come to fruition and serve those they’re built to benefit, as with the new education facility for Bergen County Special Services School District, in Paramus, New Jersey, a 125,000-square-foot complex for which he was project executive, including an administration building and school for adults with disabilities, plus middle and high schools for children with autism.
Among his other notable projects are the $400 million Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, where MAST served as the owner’s representative of the City of Newark, and project management for Bergen County Juvenile Detention Center’s Youth Shelter in Teterboro, New Jersey.
Jim earned a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Manhattan College. He is a member of the Construction Management Association of America and lives in New York’s Rockland County, in the town of Nanuet.

A construction industry veteran for over two decades, Paul Skabich joined MAST Construction Services in 2005 as a project manager. Now, as a project executive with the firm, Paul’s expertise with managing projects encompasses everything from the preconstruction through construction phases.
Through his comprehensive project management and hands-on experience, as well as his background in geotechnical and site civil engineering, Paul has developed a keen understanding of what owners and clients need, where potential problems may arise, and how design and construction phases are managed. His skills result in effective project planning, anticipating and resolving issues as they arise, and maximizing optimal outcomes for end users.
Paul focuses on projects related to parks and recreation, plus institutional and education sectors. He served as the project manager for the Newark 5th Police Precinct and Office of Emergency Management project in Newark, New Jersey, which was completed in 2011, and for which he oversaw the facilities maintenance for several years.

Gerard Carbone LEED GA
Gerard has been working in the construction industry for more than 40 years.
Gerard transferred his skill as a former union carpenter and construction estimator into project management, a now formidable expertise fostered by his extensive experience in managing the completion of complex projects for both private and public sectors, including education, mixed-use residential, commercial buildings and parking facilities in urban and suburban areas.
With industry experience that runs the gamut, including a versatility in all trades, along with a proficiency in technical issues, construction phasing and logistics Gerard is the turn-to construction authority.
Building strong relationships with multiple contractors is another one of Gerard’s talents, as is his ability to keep abreast of new technologies. He also actively implements sustainable design and construction methods for the firm’s projects, an effort that benefits MAST’s clients.
Of note is the firm’s Garden Street Lofts project in Hoboken, New Jersey, where MAST served as the owner’s representative with Gerard as project manager in the conversion of an 80-year old, seven-story warehouse building into loft-style luxury residential condominiums. The property was redeveloped using sustainable principals that earned it the United States Green Building Council’s (USGBC) LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification for resource efficiency, along with the Sustainable Building Industry Council’s 2008 Beyond Green High Performance Building Award in the multifamily category.
Gerard also is proud to have overseen construction of the Hudson County Community College 48th Street Campus, a seven-story, 92,350-square-foot educational facility located in Union City, New Jersey. This state-of-the-art building included a rooftop solar energy collection system, a 15,000-gallon rain water harvesting system and the use of recycled content to achieve LEED certification.
Another award-winning project under Gerard’s management was the new six-story Hudson County Community College Library building in Jersey City, New Jersey, which achieved LEED Silver certification.
