Hickory Construction’s Holland Added to Growing List of Employees Selected for ‘40 under 40’ Honor
ALCOA, TN — The Greater Knoxville Business Journal released its annual ‘40 under 40’ edition. Each year, individuals under age 40 from around greater Knoxville, Tennessee, are selected for the prestigious honor of being recognized among the region’s rising stars in the business, government and non-profit sectors. This year, Hickory Construction’s own Jack Holland, 35, was added to the ranks, joining previous Hickory recipients Ben Pinnell and Josh Knight.
Selected for his impressive work ethic and philanthropic involvement, many co-workers, co-volunteers, and executives regard Holland as one of the best that east Tennessee has to offer.
“His dedication to serving our neighbors in need is truly amazing,” said Susan Brown, Board Member and Volunteer for Rebuilding Together – Knoxville. “He is a hard-working servant leader who has tremendous compassion for the underserved, and he truly has a passion for making our community a better place.”
Holland has managed several projects throughout east Tennessee, including an aviation support facility for the Tennessee Army National Guard and a $3 million Research Greenhouse in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. He has also bid roughly $110 million of commercial construction and construction management projects for Hickory Construction, Inc.
“Jack is a hard worker,” said Hickory President Burke Pinnell. “As a Manager, Jack’s style embodies well-thought-out planning and an even temperament, which instills confidence in his team and results in the execution of timely and highly successful projects.”
Holland said his goal is to make an impact within both his organization and the community.
“The work that we do is great, but there would be no Hickory Construction without the existence of our wonderful community,” Holland said. “The ability to help make our community a better place is the project that I am most proud of.”
