CEO, CORE Construction
After operating in DFW for nearly three decades, CORE Construction moved here from Phoenix last year. CEO Jim Jacobs said the decision came down to four things: availability of a highly skilled and educated workforce, quality of life, diverse and vibrant economy, and central location. It’s in temporary space while building a new headquarters in Frisco. Until moving here, Jacobs says he didn’t fully appreciate the massive scale of the region. “It’s vast in size, but also vast in opportunity,” he says.
