Associate Publisher, North Carolina and South Carolina Construction News

I have been entrusted with the great responsibility to take over the associate publisher position for North and South Carolina Construction News. Bob Kruhm, now retired, made an unforgettable impact on those relationships he established and flawlessly maintained over the years. His contributions to the success of the publication for eight years have left some pretty big shoes to fill.

My goal and vision for North and South Carolina Construction News is simple: Servant Leadership. When I place myself in situations that are beneficial, rewarding and profitable for the organization, a partnership can be formed with great confidence and force. One of my long time mentors shared with me years ago that the only way to conduct business was to serve others first.

I am honored to share my talents, connections, resources and most of all my passion for the community with each individual I encounter through this new position. I am looking forward to the relationship building process, the challenge of learning new industries, offering insight and help, fostering existing relationships and continuing to bring the most relevant news and information to you.

I am based in the Charlotte, NC area, ideally located to serve both Carolina’s markets.  Bob Kruhm will continue to work on editorial initiatives in the months ahead.
