Blake Roberts – Legend Homes

When a real estate market turns sour—whether caused by market conditions or a pandemic—that’s not the time to panic, says President Blake Roberts of Legend Homes in Houston. In fact, it’s what he’d call a business opportunity. It was in this very situation that the Texas-based residential development company found itself, not once, but twice. […]

Bo Sellers – Cape Fear Valley Health System

It’s a part of the world that could use a doctor or two—an area complicated by a growing need for hospital space, housing for faculty and residents and, of course, funding. The good news: the Cape Fear Valley Health System in North Carolina is primed for expansion. Sometime this year, the organization hopes to start […]

Childress Klein – Jon Wilson

While Jon Wilson found his love of construction early on in his career, 14 years ago this Wisconsin native was looking for a change of scenery.

The company was founded by German-born William Bernhard, who emigrated to New Orleans with his parents. The definition of a self-made man, […]

Once Rochester Institute of Technology president David Munson became familiar with the college’s widely recognized mid-century modern campus, he realized there was much about the character of the institution that the sculptural brick walls concealed rather than celebrated. He envisioned a new, sprawling and state-of-the-art campus centerpiece as a transparent and transformative addition. Munson appointed […]

Kathryn Gibbs – Merck & Co Inc.
