Anthony has been with Flintco for over 22 years and has 25 years in the construction industry. He has worked in a variety of market sectors, including K-12 education, advanced industries, healthcare, and sports and leisure, among others. His varied experience has allowed him to grow and take on additional duties at a very rapid pace. Anthony performs well under tight budgets and fast-track construction. As the project director, Anthony serves in a project executive oversight role. He acts as the liaison between Flintco, the owner representatives, major subcontractors and architects/engineers to provide diversified input based on his construction expertise. Anthony is responsible for overall management direction of all areas required to successfully deliver the project. He manages the appropriate resource allocation to assure completion of the project and he serves as the senior point of contact regarding overall project contract and delivery. His specific responsibilities will be over planning, staffing, defining functions and responsibilities, and supervision of all project activities including project schedule, personnel administration and performance review.
 

Anthony is married to wife Kelli and has two adult children, both who are also married. He enjoys trying new things at least once and achieving any random goals; whether it’s participating in a 25mi bike race, or just learning how to drive a standard, the “goal” is always trying something new, bettering himself, and safely taking risks. He volunteers regularly at his church and with other community service projects. In recent years, he and his wife have done mission trips to Mexico and Peru. Anthony tries to live by a statement he once heard in passing: Man was not put on earth just to consume. He/she should also help others.
