We’re really excited about these new employees. They have initiative, discipline and team spirit — values we embrace. They also have expertise… Read more »

Our City, Our Project

Holt Brothers Construction is excited to have recently won the Market + Exchange Plaza project in the heart of downtown Raleigh. Currently, the plaza is dark and depressing, a sea of concrete. Used as a cut through and just recently the scene of a violent crime. When it’s done, the City of Raleigh’s Urban Design… Read more »

Lessons from the Gridiron

Posted: August 18, 2014 by . Tagged , ,

How does playing football prepare you for running a construction firm? It’s a topic I was asked to speak on at a recent Carolina AGC conference in Charlotte. The lessons are similar because, simply put, construction is a team sport. Construction is about teamwork, focus and determination – the same skills needed to succeed on… Read more »

2013: A Year of Milestones

Looking back on the year, Holt Brothers Inc. achieved some major milestones. At the top of the list is the team we have assembled at Holt Brothers Construction. When Torry and I were exploring construction as a potential business, the first response we got from people was: “Are you guys crazy?” Keep in mind, this was… Read more »

A Trip That Opened My Eyes – And My Heart

When I was asked by my friend, Dré Bly, if I wanted to represent the NFL on a mission to Djibouti, Africa, to visit our troops, I didn’t even have to think. The answer was YES. And so began the voyage. It required preparation. Updated immunizations and anti-malaria medicine for starters. And then the mental… Read more »

Visiting the Troops in Djibouti

When I got a phone call from Dré Bly (I know, Carolina guy but he’s still my and Torry’s best friend), I had no idea we’d be leaving on an adventure together. We’ll be on a plane today for 20 hours, heading to Djibouti, Africa to visit US troops stationed there.  The program, run by… Read more »

Mind Over Matter

The NC State football team faces a big challenge tonight vs. the #3 nationally-ranked Clemson Tigers.  Not too many people (outside of the team) think they have a chance. State is a 14 point underdog. And while Clemson dominated its last opponent, it took State a last second field goal to get past the Richmond… Read more »

Great Start but Room for Improvement

NC State couldn’t have started the season (and Coach Doeren’s tenure) better than the seven play, 65 yard, 2:33 drive that resulted in a touchdown.  It was the perfect tempo and it pumped up the anxious 60k plus fans.  Then the unfortunate happens – Quarterback Brandon Mitchell goes down and limps off the field. Wow…. Read more »

Going for THE WIN

Torry and I get asked a lot how the world of sports translates to business. I’m not sure where to start because I feel like my entire sports career prepared me for the business world. It’s having the big picture in mind (i.e. winning the game), knowing your role on the team (defensive back or… Read more »
