Chris Donner – Mammoth Holdings

Chris Donner has worked around the world to help expand established brands like Whataburger, Chili’s and Wendy’s. Now, he’s helping Mammoth Holdings expand its car wash operations. Granted, these aren’t the car washes you grew up with. The conveyors still pull vehicles through the cleaning stations, adding suds here, rinsing them off there. But there […]

Chris Mansky – International Workplace Group

It sounds like a battlefield promotion, but it’s one that Chris Mansky would have accepted under any conditions. While he’s still the Southeast regional construction director of International Workplace Group, the world’s largest flexible workspace business and parent company of Regus and Spaces, much has changed since he joined in August 2015. Corporate clients are […]

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. Now a regional facilities manager, the former minister says that operating a church and counseling parishioners is very similar to his current work at Bluegreen Vacations, a timeshare club headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, that operates […]

Childress Klein – Jon Wilson

While Jon Wilson found his love of construction early on in his career, 14 years ago this Wisconsin native was looking for a change of scenery. When someone mentioned the word “lake” in reference to North Carolina, that’s all he had to hear. Bags packed, in 2006 Wilson and his family headed south, where he […]

Christopher Hahn – Volkswagen Group of America Inc.

Just keeping up with the real estate and facility demands would keep Christopher Hahn busy. But as director real estate and facility services at Volkswagen Group of America Inc., Hahn’s not only looking for the new sites to design and test an array of styles and brands, he’s looking ahead to ensure future office and […]

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 […]

Chris Nelson – Helios Energy

What calls you to work? Meeting your financial obligations? Plying your skill? The excitement of starting a new career? For Chris Nelson and his team at Helios, it was all of these and more. 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 […]
