I have been involved with engineering and construction since being hired as a Co-Op student at Georgia Power in 1987. I continued that role at Law Engineering and ATC Associates in providing design-build solutions for hazardous waste site remediation. As environmental remediation slowed due to good practices and aggressive clean-ups, I looked for a new path to utilize my design and construction experience. I was introduced to Forza Group, and thought I could use my skills to help them grow their industrial construction repertoire. I am now President of the company, but I wear all hats from business development, estimating, project management, safety to financial controls. I have been with Forza Group since 1999 and have been working in the industry since 1987.
I love that my role gives me the opportunity to visit multiple project sites and clients each week over a diverse array of industries, and am always amazed at the skill that each group uses to create their products and services. Where many general contractors call themselves “design-builders”, Forza Group really is. We have licensed engineers and general contractors on staff, and I personally carry licenses in both. But, more than that, our workforce is comprised of technical professionals and craftspeople of the highest quality. We just don’t subcontract all of our construction work – we execute it.
Before I began my career in construction, I met my wife Lori at Georgia Tech. We have been married since 1994. We have three grown children – a daughter who graduated from Clemson University, another daughter who graduated from Georgia Tech and a son attending Georgia Tech. I have been involved with our local church (Dogwood Church), Boy Scouts of America (I am an Eagle Scout) and Little League. I enjoy volunteering my time with local charities and exploring Peachtree City in a golf cart.
