Skanska USA, one of the world’s leading construction and development firms, has announced the promotion of Jimmy Mitchell to senior director of business development for the Georgia and South Carolina regions. In his new role, Mitchell will leverage his strong community and business relationships and lead strategic growth and development efforts.
“Jimmy is a champion of Skanska’s core values and lives them daily through his work and dedication to the greater Atlanta community, Skanska clients and his colleagues,” said Scott Cannon, executive vice president and general manager for Skanska USA Building’s Georgia and South Carolina operations. “With 15 years of experience at our company, Jimmy has proven to be a critical asset to our teams both locally and across the country through his expertise in sustainability and project delivery which he exemplified on the award winning Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design.”
Mitchell started at Skanska as an intern before joining the company as an estimating engineer in 2005. In 2011, Mitchell co-founded one of the fastest growing non-profits in Atlanta, the Lifecycle Building Center, an organization that reclaims discarded building materials for reuse and provides education in sustainable construction practices.
Mitchell has a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering Technology from Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. In 2021, he was recognized as a Georgia Tech 40 Under 40.
