How We Got Here

Maria Griego-Raby founded Contract Associates over 28 years ago. Quality products and services were key from the beginning and still serve as the foundation for its reputable brand.

As a fourth generation Albuquerquean, Maria is proud to be “back in my neighborhood”, growing up just a few blocks from where the corporate headquarters stand today. Contract Associates was one of the first significant businesses to move to the downtown Sawmill area over 18 years ago, beginning an urban revitalization trend that has continued today.

Maria has had many notable personal and professional accomplishments in her long career, but she credits much of Contract Associates’ success to hiring some of the best and brightest in the industry. Her team shares and practices her original vision and standard for quality, integrating new methods and innovative thinking that contribute to the company’s continuing success.
