March 26, 2018 – As part of Barton Malow’s structure reorganization, UK-born, U.S.-based David Price has taken on a new role as Senior Vice President of the contractor’s Southeast operations. Having spent the last 23 years in Florida—11 of which were spent leading Barton Malow’s efforts in the state—Price is no stranger to the region. His familiarity combined with his leadership experience ensures the company’s efforts throughout the region aim at expanding their presence and solidifying existing relationships.
After graduating from Leeds Beckett University, Price moved to the U.S. 30 years ago after receiving the Carpenters’ Company National Exchange Scholarship Award, where he then worked in the Philadelphia-area for a local general contractor. After gaining industry experience as a Project Manager at RM Shoemaker and then Operations Manager at American Bridge, David took the position at Barton Malow to spearhead its efforts in the state of Florida. Throughout his time with the company, Price has been involved with a number of notable projects including the Redevelopment of Daytona International Speedway, the new Orlando City Soccer Stadium, several high profile Central Florida-based theme park and entertainment projects and a number of ballparks, including the Atlanta Braves and Detroit Tigers Spring Training Facilities. He is proud of the diversity of the projects currently under construction in the Southeast region, working in a number of different markets including K-12, Higher Ed, Healthcare, Sports and Entertainment.
Now as Senior Vice President of the Southeast, Price wants to cultivate the company’s self-perform group as well as to expand Barton Malow’s presence and experience from the Carolinas down through Florida. “I want us to continue to build unique, challenging projects while also providing our team with a great place to work,” says Price. He adds that redefining the industry from the ground up through innovative construction practices, bold leadership, and a unique employee-focused culture is his goal in this new position.
“Barton Malow has always been supportive of our team and the projects we have pursued in the Southeast—many of which were the first of their kind,” says Price. He believes the company’s strong culture is just one reason why he’s excited to take on his new role: “As busy as we are, Barton Malow always puts family first, and I’m grateful for our values.”
