“Jeff’s ability to connect with clients and build relationships is the cornerstone of his success,” said Marty Gibbs, vice president and general manager for The Christman Company’s operations in Knoxville. “He brings significant experience to our Knoxville team, including the ability to oversee complex projects in multiple fields.”
