DAVIS Kicks Off 2015 With Big Promotions, New Hires

Leading General Contractor Shows Continued Investment in Employees With 36 Promotions

ROCKVILLE, MD--(Marketwired - January 26, 2015) - Nationally and locally ranked construction leader James G. Davis Construction Corporation (DAVIS) keeps the momentum going in 2015 with 36 company-wide promotions and 26 new employees.

Some of DAVIS' key leadership promotions include Jon Hancher, who was named Vice President - Healthcare. Jon joined DAVIS in 2012 as Director of Healthcare. With 30 years of experience in the construction industry, Jon has played an integral role in making DAVIS an even stronger competitor in the healthcare market. In fact, Jon's leadership and expertise helped DAVIS land a key expansion project this January with Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center, an important repeat client.

Other notable promotions include longtime employees, Tim Swanson and Tom Meile, who were both named Senior Superintendents.

In addition to investing in its current employees, DAVIS' efforts to recruit the best proved strong in late 2014. The company hired 26 new employees, including three former DAVIS interns. Jeremy George, a graduate of Auburn University and AJ Pollock, a Virginia Tech graduate, were both brought on as Project Engineers. Robbie Shekletski, who hails from North Carolina State University, returned to the company as an Assistant Project Manager.

"Our Internship program leads to many new full time DAVIS employees. We seek out intern candidates who will thrive in the DAVIS environment and challenge them to learn about our industry and the people who make things happen from day one. They are integrated into our teams and have the opportunity to gain that knowledge by working with our talented employee teams using DAVIS' cutting edge tools and technology. When the internship is over, we want them to look back at not only what they learned, but what they contributed to their team's success," says Bill Moyer, DAVIS Executive Vice President.
