Consolidated Construction Promotes New Strategic Account Manager
APPLETON, WI Consolidated Construction announces the promotion of Jeremy Walker to Strategic Account Manager of Food and Beverage within its growing business development team.
Walker's work will focus on the upper Midwest, which includes Wisconsin's Fox Valley, where Consolidated Construction is headquartered. He will concentrate his new business efforts on the construction needs of cold storage facilities and food and beverage companies, including dairy and cheese producers.
Key responsibilities of Walker's new position will include identifying and developing relationships with industry professionals to generate new opportunities, expanding Consolidated Construction's awareness, researching and analyzing economic factors that may influence market activity, and establishing relationships with existing clients and prospects.
During his 18 years at Consolidated Construction, Walker spent 10 of those years building a deep knowledge of food facility project management working with food and beverage companies.
"Coming from the project management side of the company, I have full background experience in the Consolidated Construction design/build process for food and beverage companies, from estimating to design development to actual construction," Walker said. "The production process really drives the function of the building and understanding this helps me create better solutions for clients."
Walker's technical background within the company will help him assist clients with their needs, especially when the large task of new construction or an expansion causes confusion.
"Sometimes clients don't know where to begin, which is where I come in," Walker said. "I approach each project by thinking backwards to truly understand what is needed, which I think resonates with clients and helps them understand how the project flow works."
Some of Walker's notable past projects include Wisconsin Specialty Protein facility in Reedsburg, Wisconsin, and the Holiday Inn Bismarck, which won a Pyramid Award from Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. for its 2015 National Excellence in Construction competition.
In addition to the many years Walker has been a part of the Consolidated Construction team, he is also a shareholder of the company.
