Jeffrey W. Martin – Civitas Senior Living

It seemed an example of an attorney earning his stripes as Jeff Martin spent almost a decade working at several Dallas-area law firms practicing in multiple areas but specializing in commercial and complex litigation. Diligently, he researched, wrote briefs and litigated, learning all the while how businesses both large and small operate. And yet, when […]

Jill Javor – November Properties & York Investment Properties LLC

On a calm October day, Jill Javor, husband Attila and 6 1/2 year-old son, Ryan, stand beside U.S. Rep. Ralph Norman, their ribbon cutting scissors poised and ready. It’s the official opening of the 127-room Cambria Hotel Fort Mill in South Carolina. The property is just a healthy bike ride away from the sold-out, wait-listed, […]

Jim Muska – Satterfield & Pontikes Construction

Jim Muska remembers waiting in the predawn hours, the tick of the clock getting louder as time went by. The concrete finishers were supposed to have arrived an hour ago. The concrete trucks, lining the street. The challenges of construction, of working at all hours and in all conditions. The toll on the body. The […]

John Milek – Fastenal Co.

It’s a busy day on the production floor. Everyone is pitching in to fill the day’s orders. Hundreds of them, to be packaged and shipped around the globe. Suddenly, there’s a snag on the line. Maybe it’s a broken drill bit, or a machine in need of oil, or a missing pair of goggles or […]

Josh Condon – Lone Star Paving

Helping to modernize an industry that in the not-too-distant past sealed the vast majority of its deals with a handshake is something Josh Condon feels good about at Lone Star Paving. Sure, there is still a value to keeping a laid back friendly feel to the construction business, Condon, the general counsel for the five- […]

Kevin Freeman – Electrical Consultants Inc.

“Danger—High Voltage!” “Electric Shock Hazard!” “Live Wires Overhead!” “Electrostatic Sensitive Area!” We’ve all seen the signs tacked to chain-link fences around electrical substations and other electrical equipment. There’s a reason those warnings are there—they’re not just for show. And while the general public often needs reminders about the perils of high-voltage electricity, so, too, do […]

Kristen N. Gizzi – ECCO III Enterprises Inc.

For nearly 50 years, ECCO III Enterprises, a family owned business, has been a leading professional construction organization in the New York metropolitan area. As the company excavated, paved and poured concrete for infrastructure projects from overpasses to railroad stations, the Gizzi family simultaneously began to expand their real estate portfolio as ECCO Development LLC. […]

Melina Chaparro – Elementia USA

Long a leader in supplying the U.S. construction industry with copper pipes, cement and building materials, Mexican-based Elementia is setting an even stronger foundation now as it acquires plants and infrastructure across the country with its Elementia USA division. Expansion spread into Canada, too, says Elementia USA General Counsel and Vice President of Legal Affairs […]

Serge Sinanian – Sinanian Development Inc.

Details, details, details—with a potential deal-breaking devil lurking in each. Such is often the case when a company takes on design-build responsibilities for a massive public sector project. Take the Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies, a magnet public school in the Los Angeles County community of Reseda. Ranked among the nation’s best and most […]

Steve Heinrichs – Mueller Water Products

When we turn on the faucet, we expect water to come out. It’s something that we—in much of North America, at least—don’t even think about; in fact, we take it for granted. And when that water does come out, there’s a good chance that it was delivered somewhere along the way by a Mueller Water Products valve, hydrant or other essential piece of infrastructure, notes Steve Heinrichs. Dating to […]
