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 […]

Kendall Jones – Florida A&M University

Kendall Jones sure knows his way around Florida A&M University’s Tallahassee campus. As a student, he slept in the beds, sat at the desks, read the books in the library. Now 34 years later, as the school’s executive director of physical plant, Jones has also found his way around the odd corners, cubby holes and […]

Chuck Hall – Winston’s Chimney Service

On a long winter’s night, what could be better than cozying up to a warm hearth, a good book or binge-worthy Netflix show to help you wind down? Be it pine crackling in the fireplace or the soft flame of a gas log or heater insert, a good fire takes away the chill—and brings charm […]

Mike White – North Point Hospitality

It was a three crane construction operation, requiring high-swinging maneuvers to set the columns and beams for a new 19-story Hampton Inn and Suites in Midtown Atlanta and Mike White had never seen anything like it before. There, on the tight city streets, massive derricks were being used to assemble and dismantle other cranes just […]

Jim Babcock – Stay Alert Safety Services

You’re zipping along the road, making great time, and there it is—the flashing sign warning of road work up ahead. Now the trip is one of blinking brake lights, glaring spotlights and maybe the acrid smell of fresh asphalt. But be thankful for those delays, says Jim Babcock. Those are the signs of safety. As […]

L. Gerry Von Ville – Concord University

On any given Monday, L. Gerry Von Ville likes to take a walk. But not just any walk, and it doesn’t have to be Monday. Von Ville pokes around Concord University, the public university in Athens, West Virginia, where he serves as Director of Physical Plant. He might key his way into Marsh Hall, adorned with […]

Chris Shifflett – Piedmont Concrete Contractors Inc.

Football went big time in 2019 at Liberty University as the Flames beat the Georgia Southern Eagles in the Cure Bowl on Dec. 23. This was more than just another one of the bowl games filling the airwaves during the holidays, because it was also Liberty’s first full season in NCAA Division 1 football, a […]

Eric Geist – Greystar (Mountain Region)

Eric Geist says it’s been a “war of amenities” in the Wild West—one of the reasons his team was ripping down walls and installing washers and dryers as fast as humanly possible during a recent rental housing retrofit project in Denver. As the director of construction services for the Charleston, South Carolina, developer Greystar, to […]

James Kaveney Jr. – Volt Power LLC

At least two explosions in the early years of James Kaveney’s oil industry career still directly impact him today. Making his way through school as part of the hourly workforce that operated and maintained power plants, it may not be much of a stretch to say he is lucky to be alive. “When I first […]

Jennifer P. Striepling — Bloomin’ Brands Inc.

Walking into the world of fine dining at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar—located on Brickell Avenue in Miami—is to step into a subtle, sophisticated environment.
