ST. CHARLES, IL – 6 Dec, 2017 – Matt and Eric Field are brothers in their 30s and co-owners of two manufacturing companies: Wallprotex and Itasca Plastics. As young business owners in the construction industry, they looked for resources, inspiration, and mentorship for young leaders. While other industries like tech and finance were saturated with fantastic tools, the construction space was lacking. So they decided to do it themselves.
Conversations Around the Corner was created — a podcast where Matt and Eric interview the CEOs of the top 300 construction companies in America. The design of the podcast is not primarily to discuss business but step under and behind the company to have a long conversation about the CEOs, hearing the stories of their lives — from first jobs and greatest failures to best books and hunting advice.
Among the first interviews are:
- Glenn Granger (CEO of Granger Construction) – We talk about wakeboarding, Harvard MBAs, building for Zaha Hadid, and strategies for developing executives.
- Brian Acton (CEO of BMWC Constructors) – We discuss Indiana basketball, the importance of fraternities, and the best strategies for recruiting young project managers and superintendents.
- Rob Burton (CEO of Hoar Construction) – We have a conversation about Rob’s dream hunting gun, developing a leadership training program, and the #1 thing to do to move into upper management.
Matt and Eric are continually interviewing the top construction executives, providing education and inspiration for the next generation of construction leaders. We hope you enjoy the conversations!
