Kenneth Bower – Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center

It’s a squeak or a wobble and it’s disrupting your rest in a hospital bed. The housekeeping staff is friendly—they smile when they empty wastebaskets and clean surfaces. But you always know when they’re coming because of that squeak or wobble. Part of Kenneth Bower’s job is making sure the carts are quieter. If nothing […]

Mark Griffin – Broward College

Mark Griffin has a lot of history at Broward College.

David J. Benjack – Chesapeake Drywall & Acoustics Inc.

Opportunities may beckon well outside the 80-mile radius extending from Portsmouth, Virginia, but there are more than enough projects here to sustain Chesapeake Drywall & Acoustics Inc.  “No need to overextend,” President and owner David J. Benjack tells Blueprint in early spring. Not that this is shaping up as one of the livelier commercial construction seasons of late. Like practically every other industry, construction within that radius—which extends from Portsmouth […]

Caleb Kelley – Hughston Clinic

There may not be bellboys at the Jack Hughston Memorial Hospital in Phenix City, Alabama, but the sign with the big white “H” encased in a blue background above the entrance carries added value. “Many of our patients say it stands for Hilton,” jokes Caleb Kelley, system director of facilities management. “That’s how high our […]

Steven Bietz – Mueller Water Products

When you’re seeking to usher in the next industrial revolution, a machine is never just a machine. Instead, says Steven Bietz, that device becomes a highly-sophisticated element in a broader, ongoing equation—one that must be intensely monitored: How often is it running? What problems keep coming up? What technology does it use? Is it updated […]

Michael Coniglio – National Management Resources

Since opening its doors 189 years ago, Georgia’s LaGrange College has produced many memorable alums. There’s Dean W. Young, creator of the nationally-syndicated “Blondie” comic strip from the 1960s; Dwayne Shattuck, an Emmy-award winning producer of “Mad Men” and renowned novelist Terry Kay—awards and accolades abound. The other thing it’s produced: an annual utility bill […]
