“Moving into a new market is an exciting venture and having a well-respected industry veteran to help lead the expansion positions our firm well,” said Cole Johnson, president of Paul Johnson Drywall. “With our new office and an exceptional team to manage the new office operations, PJD is well-positioned to help our customers meet their sales goals and raise the bar for builders throughout Nevada.”
In addition to Brown joining the firm’s Las Vegas office, new office operations are being managed by Lou Eltringham, who has been with PJD for more than a decade and relocated to Las Vegas two years ago. She was promoted to executive project manager to assist with opening the new office and managing the firm’s payroll department.
According to a recent report from the Association of General Contractors, Nevada experienced the largest percentage increase in construction employment between July 2013 and July 2014 at 13.4 percent, adding 7,500 construction jobs over the year.
“The uptick in construction employment in Nevada is another signal that it is an opportune time for PJD to expand into the market,” Johnson added. “We look forward to providing Las Vegas-area single-family and multifamily builders with reliable, professional drywall services.”
