Pinkard Construction names Jose Amaya as its New Chief Business Development Officer. Amaya, an experienced construction professional with over 35 years of experience, will push the company into additional markets while maintaining controlled growth.
"I see enormous potential in Pinkard for markets like healthcare, mission critical, life science, and aerospace, to name a few," said Amaya. " I hope that we can branch out while still maintaining the same level of construction quality, safety, and client intimacy."
Amaya said Pinkard's homegrown history and deep roots in the community are significant differentiators in this crowded construction market. "A company celebrating its 60th anniversary in a market where some of the largest general contractors in the country are competing for work means they offer something the big guys cannot," he explains. "I want to help them scale their business in a way that preserves that client experience."
Amaya has served in executive-level business development roles at companies like JE Dunn Construction, Cumming Corporation, and, most recently, Select Building Group Commercial. He has been identifying opportunities and building relationships with Colorado Owners, Developers, General Contractors, and Architectural/Engineering firms for the last 25 years.
Tony Burke, President of Pinkard Construction, says that now that the company is completing projects valued in the $100 million range, they are excited to bring their unique capabilities to new markets. He adds that the person representing them must be the perfect mix of Pinkard's past and future.
"The diversity of [Jose's] experience is important to why we hired him," said Burke. "The fact that he started his career on the operations side and his work growing small businesses and minority contractors is an excellent fit for Pinkard's culture."
Amaya will work closely with Burke and the rest of Pinkard's executive leadership team to formalize a strategy that focuses on client retention and acquisition throughout the Colorado Front Range.
