Ken Ziff – TTEC

Said to be a week or two late in its COVID-19 response, the United Kingdom tried to make up for lost time this past spring and summer, its precautionary measures including strict oversight of construction sites. Among them was a contact center being built in Leeds and much needed by a leading global automaker intent […]

Billy Graves – Citi Trends

During recent bouts of looting and civil unrest in cities like Chicago and Minneapolis—in response to police killings of unarmed Black men and women—several Citi Trends stores were destroyed. But, like Billy Graves has always done in his nearly four-decade career with the company, he got the damaged retail spaces repaired and reopened in a […]

Miles Coggins and Matt Reese – Chicken Salad Chick

It’s not just customers who rave about Chicken Salad Chick as a healthier alternative to run-of-the-grill-and-fryer food. Landlords have also taken a liking to this Alabama-based hybrid of fast-casual and sit-down dining that commenced with franchising in 2012. That was just four years after its founding by Stacy Brown and her late husband, Kevin. Chicken […]

Michelle Higgins – AvidXchange

There was a 60,000-square-foot renovation project in Charlotte, North Carolina, a 5,000-square-foot build-out in Alabama, and several smaller renovations and upgrades at other sites across the country. All would provide AvidXchange with enough space as it designed and built a second facility in Charlotte over the next two years—a 200,000-square-foot space that would accommodate five […]

Rene Martinelli – Bolay

Florida is known for many things: Walt Disney World, alligators, oranges. More than anything, though, it’s the crystal blue water and endless beaches that define the Sunshine State. That fresh, casual vibe isn’t just reserved for resorts on the state’s east and west coasts. For Rene Martinelli, that vibe is perfect for the interior of […]

Ken Pearce – UNC Greensboro

As Ken Pearce tackles a massive capital project at UNC Greensboro, there’s no shortage of logistical issues to account for. The frontline workers must be updated on whatever direction the evolving health and safety rules might take. Zoom meetings have replaced face-to-face, and a complex inspections process must also be done remotely while some sensitive […]

Shelton Anderson – Clark Atlanta University

In 1865, just five months after the end of the Civil War, one of the parent institutions of what is now Clark Atlanta University was founded by two former slaves, setting the foundation for a school that is the oldest Historically Black College or University (HBCU) in the South. The recently repaired bells inside the […]

Jacob Zervakis – Leebcor Services LLC

Well, some things haven’t changed much since Jacob Zervakis began his career over a decade ago at Leebcor Services LLC in Williamsburg, Virginia. Most of the members of what was then a workforce of fewer than a dozen still report for duty each morning—only now they can be thought of as senior advisers to a […]

Donald R. Boyken – DRB Development Solutions

The Windy City isn’t among the easiest places to manage a major construction project, what with its oftentimes confusing politics and—more recently—the perfect storm of COVID-19 and mass protests that have brought so much business to a standstill. Such obstacles notwithstanding, the latest addition to Hilton’s brand of Curio Collection hotels should garner its certificate […]

Holly Gotfredson – American Metalcraft

To say that the metal fabrication industry is male-dominated would be an understatement. But that hasn’t stopped Holly Gotfredson from making her own statement. As the owner of American Metalcraft Inc. located just outside of Atlanta, Gotfredson and her leadership directors guide nearly 60 team members in producing painted aluminum architectural products for projects ranging […]
