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 […]

Jerry Baker – Moore’s Electrical & Mechanical

Growing up, Jerry Baker remembers watching his father build houses for wealthy and famous people—magnificent structures that seemed more like castles than homes. He wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps and worked with him for a few years while his career took shape. But Baker says that he had a broader vision—he was wired […]

Sandy Karp – IPIC Theaters LLC

A night at the movies is changing. In many ways, it can feel like a night at home, with cushioned recliners and blankets for snuggling. But not only is there the amazing big screen and a sound system that you can’t replicate in your living room; the popcorn is better and gourmet food and specialty […]

Ed Tinsley – Bernhard

When Louisiana-based Bernhard Mechanical Contractors opened its doors in 1919, the company focused mainly on projects for businesses and residents in and around Baton Rouge: plumbing, custom sheet metal fabrication and so on. The company was founded by German-born William Bernhard, who emigrated to New Orleans with his parents. The definition of a self-made man, […]

Paul Battista – Brothers Paving & Concrete Corporation

Earlier this year, Paul Battista expected to be on campus at Harvard University for the third and final semester of an Executive Education program he began a few years ago. Instead, the COVID-19 pandemic kept him at home in northern Virginia. And while he hasn’t completed the degree yet, he’s not letting the global health […]

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 […]
