Construction Project Management

I take control, I improvise, I deal with conflict well and I’m calm under pressure. I win stakeholders and I communicate the short and long term goals well. I act and make decisions. I put out spot fires and get things done. I like motivating different people to achieve different things and I’m not afraid of getting my hands dirty. I understand numbers and have a knack for sticking to a schedule. I understand the details add up to the big picture.

I maintain the vision and like to get things done for customers on time and the right way. I’m a Construction Project Manager.
