Leadership

From a young age, Eric James has been drawn to the various aspects of construction.  Growing up in rural Georgia with a dad who enjoyed carpentry, there were always opportunities to learn the basics of construction.  Whether building barns, boat docks, pond dams or pouring concrete driveways, Eric’s father invested in his future by involving him in these types of projects.  It was during these early years when a passion for building grew within Eric.

Since graduating from Southern Polytechnic State University in 1995, Eric has been a part of the construction industry.  His first two years out of school entailed working with Technology Park/Atlanta as a Project Manager at their Johns Creek development.  At the end of that period of time, he joined forces with Harcon, Inc., a concrete construction company.  During his tenure, Eric was involved in all facets of the business.  He began working in the field in order to gain the valuable experience necessary to understand the complex phases of job execution.   Through the years, he advanced to managing all operational aspects for the majority of the company’s southeastern markets.  Today, Eric is well seasoned in all areas of concrete construction including business development, estimating, budgeting, scheduling and managing the execution of projects.

Since 2002, Eric has been an active member of Associated Builders and Contractors serving on the Board of Directors and Legislative Committee.  Additionally, he is a member of the Construction Management Industry Advisory Board at Southern Polytechnic State University.

Eric and his wife, Paige, have two children, Mackenzie and Mason, and live in Cumming, GA. When not working, Eric invests his time in family and church.
