Meet our Team
Larry Zarrella – Owner
I started Zarrella Construction in 1998 with a vision to have a company that was respected and trusted by everyone in the industry. I am devoted to bringing the best quality of work to every project we do, whether it’s an office build out or a custom high rise. At the end of every job I want all parties to be happy with the quality of the work that Zarrella Construction delivered, and from that we build a positive partnership and relationship with our General Contractors and Developers.
I am a proud father of my daughter Melissa, and my twin boys Luca and William. I am as well a proud grandfather to my granddaughter Julia.
When I am not working I like to spend time on my boat fishing with the kids and friends.
To me partnership is a very big part in having a successful business. It means all partners throughout the process need to win. A true partnership can never be one sided.
Gonzalo Cruz: Born in Bogota Colombia on June 18th
I have been in the construction industry for the past 36 years. I moved to New York in 1980 and moved to Florida in 1986 working for a large GC. In January of 2014, Larry Zarrella offered me an excellent opportunity to come aboard and be a part of the Zarrella Construction team and to help lead us into the future.
My role today at Zarrella is Field Supervisor. I oversee several of the ongoing jobsites such as Porsche Design Tower in Miami Beach, Hyde Beach on Hollywood Beach, Centro in downtown Miami, 8th Avenue Apt. Tower in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Jade Signature on Miami Beach. These are just a few of the fine projects we are currently working on. It is my number one priority to make sure that these projects run smoothly and that the coordination of manpower to deliver the excellent product that keeps our Customers coming back repeatedly.
Spending time with my family is the most wonderful part of my day. My wifes name is Kerry, together we have twins Max and Savannah who are14 years old. My son Ryen who is 25 and presently lives in California. I thoroughly enjoy every minute I have with them taking them on vacations, fishing and golfing and whatever else they have in mind for the day. My parents still live in Columbia and I try my very best to see them as much as I can.
The person I admire most is Luca Zarrella. Luca is now 4 years old. Luca was born 2 weeks after I started working at Zarrella Construction. His unbelievable courage and strength to fight every day to make himself stronger than ever and never giving up has made me a stronger person. So, I carry his courage and strength along with me every day and do the very best I can to make each day better than the one before.
Partnership to me is when everyone works together to create something amazing.

I have worked at Zarrella Construction since Larry opened the company in 1999. I also worked at M. Ecker & Co. for 10 years where I first met Larry when he came to Fort Lauderdale to take over as President.
I wear many hats for Zarrella Construction from the moment you walk in to all kinds of administrative work except for Estimating and job site supervision. This includes payroll, accounts receivable and payables to receptionist and beyond.
What does Partnership mean to me? While working together with Larry and all of my team I have learned that we are all is this together. We can each count on one another to make this company work. Through the years this is what has been so incredibly amazing to me. No matter what, we are a team. We work very hard together every day to succeed in this mighty company that we all call Zarrella Construction Inc.
When I’m not working, some of my best times are spent with very special friends, going to the beach, bike riding, fishing, boating, vacationing and simply relaxing and enjoying every moment that comes my way.
My Family is very important to me. I spend as much time as possible with them. My brother Mark and his family live in Houston, Texas. My niece Taylor and her husband Brett are also very important to me and I’m very proud to announce that I am “Great” Aunt RoRo to my Great Nephew Parker who lives in San Diego, CA. My Nephew Kyle lives in Houston and is just amazing.
Also part of this amazing family is my niece Missi (my Mini-Me) Outten who lives in Nashville and my Nephew Denton Davis who works for a MD in Port St. Lucie, Fl.
The person I admire the most is my Mom (Nellie) who most of you know as the most wonderful, inspiring woman in my life who gave me the gift of life, love and her incredible big heart. She always told me to hold my head up high and believe in who I am through good times and in bad (and you know she was so right).

To me, partnership is working with people to reach similar goals and to create a relationship with those we work with. Larry has put together a fine team of personnel over the years. Zarrella Construction is a relaxed atmosphere where everyone works together, which in turn has created a tight-knit family relationship in the office. Zarrella Construction has also created a great relationship with all its clients which will keep the company in good standings for many years.
