John Bailey Ph.D. – The National School Plant Management Association

Faulty heating and cooling systems making students shiver or swelter—not to mention dimly-lit classrooms—are not only uncomfortable, but also may result in lower scores on standardized tests, says Dr. John Bailey of the National School Plant Management Association. He should know. Bailey studied classroom environments as part of his doctoral dissertation and found mean scaled […]

Jeff Rueschhoff – Americold

Working at down to minus 20 degrees is a challenge for humans and machinery alike. For the former, it takes wearing the same kind of gear one might wear on an ice-cold snowmobile ride: gloves, long underwear, heavy duty outerwear and face masks covering every inch of fragile skin. For the latter, extreme cold isn’t […]

Bob Rathmanner – CARROLL

Apartment complexes used to be simple. Building after building lining meandering roads. A visible outdoor cement staircase leading to the upper floors of each structure. There might have been a nondescript clubhouse or a pool or the occasional tennis court. Like Jean Stapleton sang as Edith Bunker in “All in the Family,” those were the […]

Demetrios Panteleakis

With roots in Mani Peninsula in Greece, Demetrios Panteleakis can lay claim to a few of the Greek cultural ideals coursing through his veins: he has an eye for architecture and is well-versed in law, both serving him well in his modern-day business role. Now overseeing a landmark $800 million project in Miami as the […]

Justin Smith – Greystar

He’s adept at juggling high-stakes projects with strict timelines and sometimes dealing with inherent geological challenges in the process. Such as in 2018, when Justin Smith was overseeing the development of student housing projects in both Fort Collins, Colorado, and Honolulu. Laying down a sprawling slab foundation in northern Colorado didn’t present too many challenges, […]

Guy Beasley – R&R Industries

When Guy Beasley left the journalism industry to help open a roofing company in Daytona Beach, Florida, in 2003—a year before three hurricanes struck the state—it didn’t take long for him to see the business model’s potential. Fast forward 17 years, and Beasley’s company has reached new heights with the acquisition of the much larger […]

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 […]
