As a company leader of design build construction company, my primary function is empowering the right people to lead their own specific department and never lose focus of our core values. Each department—design, drafting, estimating, sales, purchasing, scheduling, excavation, concrete, and erection—are all interrelated and dependent on each other. The right people with good people skills is the key to “making it happen together”.
Team spirit and willingness to serve is easily transferred to our subcontractors and customers. Their accomplishments make great things happen in the construction industry.
In summary, I would like to say it gives me great satisfaction to be the leader of a company who builds construction and people relationships with the appreciation of servanthood.
