“Giving young leaders the opportunities to develop their skills and harness their talents is one of Turner’s core beliefs." - Ken Jones, Vice President and General Manager of Turner's Mid-Atlantic Office
Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
Turner Construction Company is pleased to announce that Drew Langsam, Project Executive, and Brian Krause, Business Manager, have been recognized by Engineering News-Record (ENR) as two of the Mid-Atlantic’s Top 20 Under 40. This annual regional competition celebrates individuals under the age of 40 who demonstrate exceptional leadership qualities, a commitment to excellence and dedication to the communities their projects serve. Winners are selected by a jury of industry leaders from each region, who base their determinations on career experience, industry leadership, community service, and a number of other factors.
Drew Langsam, a fifteen year Turner employee and graduate of the University of Maryland, currently works with Turner’s Interiors Group as a Project Executive. He leads a team of project managers and superintendents focusing on Higher Ed, Healthcare, and High End interiors projects. He is an active member of DCBIA, USGBC, Greenspace and Corenet. Most recently, Drew led a pursuit for the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy – resulting in an exciting win for him and his team.
Brian Krause, a twelve year Turner employee and graduate of Virginia Tech, helped lead the implementation, employee training, and support of Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) for Turner world-wide. He led Turner’s BIM University, an immersive six week advanced BIM training program for employees. Brian recently was promoted to Business Manager for Turner Interiors and leverages his technical knowledge and lean construction experience for the advancement of the business unit.
“Turner congratulates Drew and Brian on these exciting achievements,” said Ken Jones, Vice President and General Manager of Turner’s Mid-Atlantic Office. “Giving young leaders the opportunities to develop their skills and harness their talents is one of Turner’s core beliefs. Drew and Brian represent the growing success of our efforts to nurture the strengths of team members by providing an environment that fosters leadership."
This year, in addition to Brian and Drew, four other Turner employees were recognized as the “Top 20 under 40” nationwide: Terriann Nohilly and Marceid Hatcher from ENR California and Brian Mooney and Jason Jones from ENR Midwest.
