Pinkard Construction has announced the promotion of two key employees. Blake Chambliss, a 38-year veteran of the company, has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer and will be providing leadership for all facets of Pinkard's current and future construction projects. He will continue to lead Pinkard’s Self-Performance Group as a subset of Operations.
In addition, Pinkard announced that Joe Revielle will be promoted to Construction Manager, reporting to Chambliss, and offering direct supervision of all construction projects assigned to him.
Tony Burke, Pinkard President, said that these leadership changes will improve Pinkard's reporting structure to create better support and accountability for our projects and team members, ultimately benefitting clients.
“Blake is amazingly resilient and resourceful and has leveraged those qualities to tackle and excel in every job and challenge that has come his way,” said Burke. “Joe’s experience and his exceptional attention to detail has quickly made him one of Pinkard’s most sought-after superintendents. He will carry this wealth of knowledge to his new role and be able to mentor our up-and-coming stars.”
Chambliss says he is excited to be transitioning into a role where he can support project teams removing roadblocks and ensuring that staffing is adequate.
“Due to all the new work we have acquired, my priority is filling all of our vacant operations positions, including many assistant superintendent roles,” says Chambliss. “It is important to me that our teams not only have the leadership support I can provide but also the boots on the ground to make sure teams continue to provide exceptional client service and construction quality.”
Blake’s list of successful projects spans many project types. He has worked on recreation centers, multi-family, senior housing, municipal, healthcare, and Class A office buildings. He holds a National Standard General Building Contractor (A) license, and four of his projects have been awarded ABC’s first-place National Excellence in Construction award.
“Business is booming, and I am excited to help Pinkard make sure that all of the sizable upcoming projects are set up for success before we even start moving dirt,” says Revielle.
Joe Revielle has been in the construction industry for 38 years and has excelled in a diverse mix of project types, including multifamily housing, retail, and municipal ranging from $1 to over $90 million. He is a LEED accredited professional in Building Design + Construction and has developed his listening and collaborative skills partly through his extensive municipal experience as a planning commissioner. He has been with Pinkard 5 years.
