The first thing you notice is that he’s meticulous. It starts with his wardrobe and immaculately-styled hair, and becomes even more striking seeing the pride he takes in his work and his employer, Lerner Enterprises (Lerner).
Stepping off the escalator at Dulles Town Center on a Friday morning just after the mall opens for business, he stops mid-sentence as his eyes notice a toothpick on the floor. He leans downs, picks it up, says “this shouldn’t be here, someone could get hurt,” throws it in a trash bin, and continues the conversation.
Walking back from his interview with the Tribune, he picks up scraps of paper left on the floor near Starbucks. No interruption in his flow, just the natural act of a man at peace with himself and proud of what Lerner has accomplished in his 35 years there.
He is Arthur “Art” Fuccillo, Executive Vice President of Development and Construction, presiding over complex commercial and residential projects throughout Loudoun, the metropolitan region, and beyond, for a private company he says has paid more taxes to Loudoun County than anyone else over the past 25 years.
