Signature Homes

The good news just keeps on coming, the aptly named Chris Carpenter muses from the Nashville satellite of Alabama-based Signature Homes. For while the capital of Tennessee still may go by the moniker of Music City, far more than records are being made in this thriving southern metropolis with a climate largely spared extremes and […]

J.S. Archer Co. Inc.

It’s said that locks are only for honest people, but that might be more for the basic door. For the specialty wares furnished and installed by J.S. Archer Co. Inc. in Ashland, Virginia, keep more than burglars out. There are also the fires, explosions, floods, storms, vehicular crashes or whatever else that must be withstood. […]

Jon Papps – Prisma Health

Jon Papps likes to joke that he was the first person in history to bring the University of South Carolina and Clemson University—heated rivals whose football teams have divided the state for more than a century—together for a common cause.

Hollingsworth Pack

He’ll tell you about how in 2012 Hollingsworth Pack helped rebuild Haiti after the earthquake of two years earlier, when the rule of law crumbled along with so much infrastructure. Or about how the U.S. Air Force dormitory in Greenland needs an innovative approach to address everything from melting permafrost to Arctic gales. Or about […]

Danny Koontz – Collier Restaurant Group

He started in the company’s commissary group, working after school and weekends in a kitchen while attending the University of Tennessee. In 1980, he was given a purchasing job at corporate headquarters. A few years later, he moved to facilities and quickly scaled the ranks to facilities management director overseeing all company locations. So when […]

Karen Hodson – CM Group

From the moment Karen Hodson walked into CM Group’s former San Francisco office, she knew the vibe was all wrong. Conference rooms unnecessarily clustered in the center demanded the most attention, making the open-concept desks surrounding them feel scattered and sparse. Adding to the effect, the office was just too big for the number of […]

Porter Contracting

Eli Porter, owner of the Florida-based company Porter Contracting, has decades of experience to draw from to help him hold tight to his standards in the booming Florida real estate market. Still, his youth spent playing sports sticks with him. The importance of being a team player, for instance, has left a lasting impression and […]
