For the Greater Good
With a reputation for to quality construction practices and a moral obligation to our neighborhood residents and the residents of Marion County, On Top of the World (OTOW) sets the standard for other developers in the industry. As one of the oldest privately owned debt-free companies in Florida, much of that success is attributed to the leadership President Kenneth D. Colen has shown, and the community service mindset he has instilled in the 500+ employees On Top of the World employs.
As the late Sidney Colen states in the company mission statement, “We have always believed keenly that service and human values are greater than mere development.” With that mission at the forefront of all On Top of the World does internally and externally, our employees and residents are encouraged to do things for the greater good to make a positive change within our local community.
