Concorde Construction Co. based in Charlotte has given superintendent John Speight the post of vice president – quality assurance.
“John has been a senior manager on Concorde’s highest profile projects for the last 10 years,” said president David Privitera. “His thought leadership and attention to detail has set the standard for our team.”
Speight has been a superintendent for the company since 2005. He has completed well over 1,000,000 sq. ft. in projects for a total of over $76,000,000. With twenty years of experience, Speight has built his reputation as a trusted and reliable superintendent whose success hinges on his proven commitment to enforce stringent safety regulations, coordinating all field operations, providing quality control and troubleshooting skills, the company said in a news release.
“John is a guy that is always willing to use 110% of his energy and talents to make sure a job is done the right way – the first time,” said Tyler Steele, vice-president of New Forum Inc. “His hands-on and creative approach at tackling unforeseen issues of a project are a major factor in completing the project on time and within budget. His experience is invaluable and he will excel at his new role with Concorde Construction.”
Meanwhile, Barbara Henson, owner of Embassy Suites Ayrsley, said in the news release: “John combines a deep knowledge of the staging, sequencing, and building process, with an eye to design, color matching and spatial harmony. He cared deeply about the project, truly almost as much as we did. Ours was a very complicated project, a 170 room hotel with extensive meeting space is really an apartment project, office building, restaurant, indoor swimming pool and banquet facility all rolled into one. I cannot adequately express the degree to which we relied on his guidance throughout the process.”
