I find soup to be extremely delicious, particularly when paired with bread.” Who can blame him?
Bullpen Manager & Receptionist
In baseball, your bench coach often acts as an in-game advisor to the team, and our receptionist Valarie fits this to a tee.

He enjoys working with clients and taking part in a diverse range of projects. In his downtime, you can probably find him in the great outdoors pursuing his love of hunting and fishing.
Middle Reliever & Project Manager
Sometimes in baseball, well-liked teammates get traded but then come back after a season or two with a new perspective on the game and an increased skill set. Dylan interned at C & W while earning his Construction Management degree at Kennesaw State University. After graduation, he moved on for a while to work in different sectors of construction. The experience not only allowed him to see all sides of the industry but realize that C&W was the “team” he wanted to “commit” to for his construction career. He has been back at C&W for several years now and enjoys the variety and balance between crunching numbers on a bid at the office and being out and about at job sites. While not working, he enjoys spending time with his family, hiking, and cheering on Atlanta United.
First Base and Assistant Project Manager
First base requires general awareness of the entire field, and Jonathan is sure to bring that to every project he is on. Before joining C & W, he kicked and punted for The University of the Cumberlands while obtaining a double major in Business Administration as well as Fitness and Sports Management. During his fifth year of eligibility, he went on to attain his MBA. His athletic background set him up to be a true team player, which is one of the things he enjoys most about the construction process. He also likes seeing the tangible results of a project coming together and visiting different job sites throughout Atlanta. He is a true sports enthusiast and loves following all of Atlanta’s home teams as well as international soccer and racing leagues like Formula 1 and Nascar. When not following sports, he’s either at the movie theater, on his bike, at the gym, running, or spending time with family and friends.
Long Reliever & Project Manager
In baseball, long relievers come in to get the game under control. Matthew’s favorite parts of construction are problem-solving and creating teams to achieve the impossible, which makes him the perfect “mop-up man” at C & W.
