Kaufman Lynn Construction has appointed John Wilkins as senior vice president of its new regional office in Raleigh, N.C. In this position, Wilkins will oversee the management and strategic planning of the company’s construction projects throughout the region. His initial focus will be to increase the workforce of the Raleigh office and bring together a competent team to support two of the company’s projects, the Prince Charles Hotel in Fayetteville and the Lofts in Kannapolis.

With more than 35 years of construction experience, Wilkins has seen first-hand how the industry and the state’s landscape have evolved. Prior to joining Kaufman, he spent four years at Balfour Beatty as operations director. Before that, he was with RN Rouse & Co. for 32 years, gaining extensive experience in pre-construction, construction as well as project and company management.

“With John at the helm of our new office in Raleigh, I am confident that he will expand our North Carolina division to new markets and produce projects synonymous with the quality work KL has been known for in Florida for nearly 30 years,” said Chief Executive Officer Michael Kaufman, in a prepared statement.

A graduate of North Carolina State University, Wilkins received his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering in 1988.
