Jalisia Davis – YMCA of Greater Charlotte

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It’s quite the opportunity to be creative, which seems in keeping with her strengths. Jalisia Davis is just able to be more so since becoming director of facilities in August 2017 for one of the largest YMCA organizations in the country, that in the greater Charlotte area of North Carolina. For a woman who had […]

Steven Pecic – Wayne State University

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Uprooting a brick house that is a campus landmark was not in his plans when Steven Pecic arrived at Detroit’s Wayne State University in 2006. Then again, neither was overseeing the entire facility’s operational portfolio and maintenance of the campus, or participating in the construction of the $65 million project that takes the place of […]

Brianna Goodwin – Ver-Tex Construction

Est. reading time: 5 mins

On the flat lands of South Florida, it’s visible for miles in every direction. Even makes a landmark for sailors to the east. The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood that, come autumn, will be welcoming guests into its new 450-foot tall tower resembling a massive and vertical Gibson Les Paul electric guitar—the […]

Dave Keelty – University of Vermont Medical Center

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It’s not just what the doctors ordered, it’s what former patients and their families advised when the University of Vermont Medical Center was about to commence with an ambitious addition six years ago. For all too often those folks—the real stakeholders in any healthcare project—seem left out of the equation when it comes to layout […]

Keith Stewart – University of Illinois Springfield

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It might’ve been the chancellor’s house at one point, but don’t quote him on that. All Keith Stewart knows for sure is it was built sometime in the 1950s—not surprising, given the modified ranch’s dated look and spartan features—and that it became the University of Illinois Springfield’s on-campus childcare center purely by default. Over time, […]

Kevin Kernahan – Toll Brothers

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Whether it is bringing toxic mines back from the brink, or breathing new life into abandoned, yet historically significant properties, Kevin Kernahan finds the process of transformation awe-inspiring. While the senior vice president of land development doesn’t exactly turn water into wine, this Toll Brothers executive has helped convert an acidic mine into a clean […]

Rieber Contracting

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Word of mouth goes a long way for Rieber Contracting, but social media may go even further in keeping the Council Bluffs, Iowa, siding company ahead of its competition. Working jobs throughout the Midwest, Southwest, and Pacific Northwest, CEO Jalon Rieber and Regional Sales Manager Bill Heydenreich say the company relies on its completed jobs […]

Dale Gingrich – Members 1st Federal Credit Union

Est. reading time: 4 mins

An old gas station in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, is playing a role in the future of financial services. By the fourth quarter this year, the site of the station will be a new branch for Members 1st Federal Credit Union and a template for its new branch design. “It is a very unique site,” Gingrich says […]

Lou Joseph – Home Savings Bank

Est. reading time: 4 mins

To a first-time customer, it probably felt more like a doctor’s office than a community bank: giant pearl white reception desk, white wood paneled walls awash in harsh fluorescent lighting, old brown carpeting and outdated curtains—the list goes on. So when Home Savings Bank (HSB) launched an organization-wide rebrand in 2017, redesigning the bank’s third-busiest […]

Highridge Costa

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It’s a situation so many desirable locales face, perhaps none more so than Hawaii, where the cost of living soars higher than what much of its service economy’s workforce can bear. Or what many retirees can afford just to live out their golden years in a community they may have helped build. The solution isn’t […]
