Christopher Wyckoff – Town of Mooresville, NC

The police building in Mooresville, North Carolina, had plenty of space in 2001 when it was built, comfortably housing its staff of 50. Now more than double that number cram into the offices each day—but not for much longer. The new police headquarters are a necessary upgrade, says Christopher Wyckoff, director of facilities for the […]

Chris Policastro – Duke University

It was shaping up as a Spring Break like any other at Duke University in March 2020.

As Chris Policastro recalls, the plan was for a detailed […]

Chuck Griffith – Bluegreen Vacations

For some, customer service is a hassle of the job, but for Chuck Griffith, it’s an act of faith.

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 […]

A Marine Corps intelligence veteran, Nelson led global training and sales for three Fortune 500 companies following his military retirement. Seeing […]

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 […]

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.

Carousel Development & Restoration

Unless you’re expecting a hefty class-action settlement, getting a call out of the blue from an attorney you don’t know probably isn’t something to get excited about.
