Director of crane operations, Brasfield & Gorrie
JR started his career with B&G Equipment and Supply, a division of Brasfield & Gorrie, LLC, almost 20 years ago and currently serves as director of crane operations. He
manages strategic industry relationships and oversees crane and hoist asset management.
JR’s collaboration with Brasfield & Gorrie’s Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) team is generating opportunities for improved coordination in the crane and hoisting scope of work. By overlaying
in-house parametric crane models with project models and drone data, project teams are seeing an impact in the areas of mobilization safety, tieback coordination, and efficiency of hoisting design.
JR graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2004 with a degree in Industrial Distribution and earned his MBA from Auburn University at Montgomery in 2015.
