Our Founder

Ramon Colon

Ramon Colon co-founded Innovative Contracting Services in 2011. 


Prior to founding ICS, Ramon worked in the utility industry (Iberdrola USA, Rochester, NY) for almost 18 years. While there, he was a Mapper, Team Leader and Mapping Supervisor. He met his mentor, expanded his leadership skills and earned his Lean Six Sigma Green Belt in 2010 while leading multiple projects across the Iberdrola USA subsidiaries. These skills, along with his intuitive nature, allowed him to grow ICS from one to over thirty people in a single year.


Prior to Iberdrola USA (formerly Rochester Gas & Electric) Ramon got his start locally in Rochester, NY at Edison Tech, where he learned the fundamentals of drafting.


Ramon was passionate about mapping, and his work ethic maintained a philosophy of doing the right thing. He always wanted to be part of the solution, never settled for second best, and encouraged his employees to find the products that best fit the needs of the end users. Meeting customer expectations was at the core of his values.



Felix Melendez has assumed the role of President of Innovative Contracting Services and he will continue to grow the company and maintain the values that he shared with Ramon.
