Jon Papps – Prisma Health

Responding to COVID-19 has required some organizations to be more resourceful than others. That’s why the facilities staff of Prisma Health spent three days in January scrubbing, repairing and painting an abandoned retail store. When it became clear that there wasn’t enough room to administer vaccines at the hospital, they transformed the store across the […]

George Phelps – Holladay Properties

He can be just what the doctor ordered when it comes to upgrades and retrofits of healthcare facilities in the South and heartland. Director of construction management for Holladay Properties’ healthcare services division in Nashville, George Phelps is readying his team for a 16,000-square-foot MRI specialty area and clinic in the Brentwood, Tennessee, area. His […]

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 […]

Kevin Hudson – University of North Alabama

For Alabama native Kevin Hudson, instilling value in every encounter with his team has become a hallmark of his career in construction—a way of giving southern hospitality a new meaning. After graduating from Auburn University in 2008, Hudson got his start working with a small contractor out of Nashville, Tennessee, before pursuing opportunities back in […]

Tommy Jones – Stanley Martin Homes

Classic diners, like the ones you’d find in New York City, are known for 20-page menus with everything from scrambled eggs and toast to lobster and filet mignon. Tommy Jones is a fan of diners, but he says his role as the director of corporate manufacturing for Stanley Martin Homes is different from that of […]

Pete Ferreira – Hotwire Communications

For Pete Ferreira, fiber is ensuring Hotwire Communications lives up to its name as it connects internet customers throughout southwest Florida. Lauded by Netflix and PCMag as the fastest internet service provider in the country, Hotwire is also becoming the ISP […]

Tai Davis – Fayetteville State University

Watching Tai Davis work with his facilities team, one would never know he’s a staunch introvert, mostly content to keep to himself. Davis credits his California upbringing with introducing him to people from all backgrounds and cultures—and for teaching him to accept them for who they are. But it was his mother, a social worker […]

Michael Zebrowski – Maxwell Group

Managing facilities that serve one of the populations most vulnerable to COVID-19 presents many challenges, from sanitation and vaccine distribution to combatting loneliness. So the vice president of facilities services for Maxwell Group wasted no time when the pandemic first hit in March 2020, quickly stockpiling personal protective equipment and cleaning supplies. Michael Zebrowski has […]

Jonathan Thomas – Autobell Car Wash

If you take your vehicle through a conveyor car wash, you’ll likely notice the process looks and feels much like it did 10 or 20 years ago: the streams of soapy water; the large cloth mittens bathing your car much like a zookeeper washes an elephant; and the high-velocity air dryers at tunnel’s end. But […]

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 […]
