NOMINEE STATEMENT: Justin Olear’s home building career began his senior year of high school with an internship at a local architectural firm. He holds a bachelor’s degree in architecture and a master’s degree in construction management. As Regal Builders’ project manager, he slashed construction costs and build times nearly in half and earned a promotion to vice president of construction and operations. He oversaw a relaunch of Regal Builders’ active lifestyle community, Noble’s Pond, which required working with consultants, architects, interior designers and marketing agencies. After the relaunch, sales tripled in one year.
