What is your biggest
current challenge at work?

successful in attracting the best and brightest talent in the industry. Our

What keeps you up at night?
We are driven to help our
clients reach levels of success in which they've never thought possible. We

How does your ABC

awareness of many of the global issues facing the construction industry. So

interact with them.
What do you look forward to

What is your favorite metro
What do you do for fun?
Run, swim, bike, play
tennis, cross-fit, P90X, golf, travel and spend time with family and friends.
What business/career advice
do you wish you had when you began?
I wish I'd had a mentor to
share my career goals and accomplishments with who could help me make better
decisions for the long-term. When we are young we get caught up in the moment
of our success and make decisions that impact the rest of our lives. Insight
from someone wiser at this time would have been very helpful.
What was your first job?
I was a trash man at an
apartment complex. In my second job I was a janitor at a bowling alley. I'll
tell you now, I was a darn good trash man and janitor!
