Est. reading time: 4 mins

Adopting a child is a life-changing decision. So is opening a business. But they don’t often go together as they did for Rob and Emily Webb of Just Love Coffee. In 2009, Rob Webb was on a flight to Ethiopia as the couple prepared to adopt two daughters. While on his adoption journey, he had […]

Tai Davis – Fayetteville State University

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Before last year, when students at Fayetteville State University submitted a maintenance request, they didn’t know when it would be addressed. Sometimes, facilities workers would show up when students were sleeping, getting dressed or trying to concentrate on their work, creating an uncomfortable situation for both parties. Tai Davis heard these frustrations from students last […]

Doug Myers – Acosta

Est. reading time: 5 mins

There might be some hyperbole when Doug Myers laughingly describes how the real estate director in any enterprise—of which he is one—can still be perceived as the proverbial redheaded stepchild. Given the difficulty of property transactions, he understands the basis for the stereotype. But he sees it getting less pronounced, at least for his employer. […]

It’s quite the heap of twisted and rusted metal that Hurricane Ida left on the western bank of the Mississippi River late last August.

Chris Donner – Mammoth Holdings

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Chris Donner has worked around the world to help expand established brands like Whataburger, Chili’s and Wendy’s. Now, he’s helping Mammoth Holdings expand its car wash operations. Granted, these aren’t the car washes you grew up with. The conveyors still pull vehicles through the cleaning stations, adding suds here, rinsing them off there. But there […]

Chris Mansky – International Workplace Group

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It sounds like a battlefield promotion, but it’s one that Chris Mansky would have accepted under any conditions. While he’s still the Southeast regional construction director of International Workplace Group, the world’s largest flexible workspace business and parent company of Regus and Spaces, much has changed since he joined in August 2015. Corporate clients are […]

Steve Hayworth – Drucker + Falk

It’s been an unusual three years for residents of the Cypress Run apartment community in Orlando, Florida. Building by building, they’ve been temporarily moved to furnished units, leaving their furniture and possessions behind for about six weeks. The relocations are needed because contractors have been renovating exteriors of the community’s 31 buildings, including replacing the […]
