Jim is the President of Edgewater and started the company in 2006.

Background:
Jim has over 25 years of experience in construction and engineering. Throughout his active duty service, he held various positions from performing vertical construction operations around the world for the U.S. Navy Seabees to estimating, project management, and contract administration for the U.S. Navy Civil Engineer Corps. His experiences allowed him to gain the requisite knowledge as a contracting officer to be fully prepared and accept the responsibilities to drive many military construction projects as they progressed through conceptual, design, and construction phases. Since retiring from the military Jim worked for an outstanding commercial general contractor based in Richmond, Virginia before joining with his business partner to start Edgewater with the aspiration to truly bring professionalism and service back into the construction industry.
