What is the biggest misconception about the industry?
That recruiting is too expensive. That companies can hire their own talent cheaper than what we charge. However when the person they hire does not work out, then they have to start over. If they were working with HOBSON USA we would replace this individual per the contract agreement.
What project is your company most proud of?
HOBSON USA was involved in multiple projects for The John's Hopkins Hospital. We performed construction staffing and CM services on The Sheikh Zayed Tower and Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children's Center ($1B project) and John's Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Oncology and Emergency Department ($66M project)
How does your ABC membership help your company?
It helps us get our company name recognized in the construction industry. It also helps me by staying engaged in the Construction Community by networking and donating time and recruiting efforts on the Membership Committee.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
An F-18 Fighter Pilot.
Tell us something no one in the industry knows about you.
I am a Dallas Cowboy Fan :)
What do you look forward to each day?
New opportunities, and the chance to help someone find a good paying job in the construction field. To help a contractors grow their company by finding the qualified construction candidates that they seek.
Who would you trade places with for a day?
To trade places with one of our soldiers in the middle east. To actually see the sacrifices that these brave individuals make on a daily basis.
What was your first job?
My first job, I was an electrician's helper at David Taylor Research Center in Annapolis, MD.
