Achour Odicho – Verano Holdings

When Achour Odicho took a break from college to intern at an architecture firm, his plans didn’t go as he’d imagined. The internship bored him, and he left when he saw an ad seeking a freelance designer for a cannabis company. He spent the next two years working remotely on license applications. From there, Odicho […]

Andrea Grice – Community Dental Partners

When Andrea Grice joined Community Dental Partners in 2017, she was unsure about her new position—it was with a smaller company and in a different working environment altogether. But within a month she knew she’d made the right decision, relishing the freedom as the executive director of facilities to develop her department. Now business is […]

Brandon Brito – Greystar Real Estate Partners

Brandon Brito’s favorite part of his job? “Seeing the finished product,” he tells Blueprint in December 2020. Senior director of construction services for Greystar Real Estate Partners’ Californian operations since 2012, Brito should continue to see many finished products. Noting his employer is a global leader in the investment, development and redevelopment, and management of […]

Martin Luther King Jr. even received an award at the Concord in 1963. The hotel closed […]

Carleton Knotts – Intalere

The pandemic notwithstanding, it always helps to walk the premises and meet the decision-makers. Carleton Knotts did just that this past December at a small rural hospital undergoing renovations in the Texas Panhandle. Director of energy, construction and facility management for the group purchasing organization Intalere, Knotts was in the Lone Star State to advise […]

Chris Baker – Renown Health

It’s another Monday morning meeting as you settle in with a cup of coffee, chit chat about your weekend and focus on the agenda as your week begins. Wait. You want to do what? You want to do it by when? Such was the scene in March 2020 as the leadership, construction and facilities, IT […]

Chuck Pagnotta – The Briad Group

The party hasn’t really ended at the new AC Hotel by Marriott Bridgewater. It’s only been toned down by a pandemic that’s lessened good times just about everywhere, including here in north central New Jersey. But when some sense of normalcy resumes, this place will really be rockin.’ So assures Chuck Pagnotta, who was among […]

David Miranda – Long Beach Unified School District

When David Miranda said he planned to visit every school in the Long Beach Unified School District within a year, he was told it was impossible. As the executive director of facilities, development and planning, he wanted to understand each school’s issues and opportunities. In his previous roles in school facilities, he always visited each […]

Gordon Stevenson – Goodnight Midstream

If you’re from Texas, it’s likely you know a good bit about football and just as much about the oil industry. But here’s something you probably don’t know about the latter: Oil production can produce naturally occurring formation water—and lots of it. Properly disposing of that water, while meeting strict environmental standards, is the business of […]

Hilleary Steckler – VASA Fitness

For Hilleary Steckler, the best part of the job is walking through the doors of a finished VASA Fitness location—to see it through the eyes of a member. Knowing the amount of work dedicated to each location, Steckler says it fills her with a sense of accomplishment. As VASA’s director of facility design, Steckler has […]
