Well known and widely regarded for his professional efforts within Panama City’s construction sector, Gabriel Btesh has focused heavily on innovation within the field during a career spanning more than three decades. Now in charge of the family’s booming construction firm, here Btesh reveals his philosophy for success as he and his family remain revered by many in their home country of Panama.
“The company is more than just a legacy for my family and me,” he explains. “We have raised the bar for architectural integrity throughout Panama, and, over the course of the last decade alone, we have created more than 10,000 construction industry jobs in the country,” adds Btesh.
“I have always been a keen proponent of the advances being made toward increasing standards of living and well-being in Panama,” he continues, “and I have always yearned to do what was right, both personally and professionally, and on a scale as great as possible.”
Originally founded by his father, Jack Btesh, and now in the hands of Gabriel, the business is an internationally respected player in the construction industry. “My father laid a sturdy foundation,” explains the developer, “and for that, I am eternally grateful.”

According to Btesh, building homes for those in need has been one of the most rewarding and exciting aspects of his career. “Through my endeavors, the company and I have been able to promote both the advancement of the business and the importance of the well-being of those living in Panama,” he reveals.
A significant part of the Panama City construction sector professional’s philosophy is focused on creating and supporting an abundance of employment opportunities, both in the city and across the country. “A typical construction project will directly create over 1,000 jobs in the local area,” Btesh explains, “with many of our retail and leisure industry projects often indirectly creating hundreds or thousands more, and continuing to create jobs for years to come.”
Btesh points out that where individuals have jobs, they also have money to spend, and when these individuals spend their money, they’re putting those funds back into the economy. “It circulates in a positive and accumulative manner,” he explains.
This, Gabriel Btesh says, is a cycle which is repeated regularly by him and his business. “I believe that by securing the positive cycle of employees, and by growing bigger as a company, we’ve successfully contributed toward helping the Panamanian economy to flourish, particularly in recent years,” he adds, wrapping up.
