CEO of REEDER Construction recognized for improving Tarrant County
FORT WORTH, Texas (APRIL 25, 2019) – Lane Reeder, Chief Executive Officer for REEDER Construction, a local general contractor with a solid reputation of integrity and performance was awarded the celebrated Fort Worth Business Press’ 40 Under 40 at Cendera Center on April 24, 2019.
Beginning as field superintendent in 2006 Lane advanced to Vice President of Operations by 2010. Beginning with a ground up knowledge of construction processes Lane has helped to transform REEDER’s company systems; everything from creating a hiring matrix, to ensure we hire the “right” individuals, to hands on training for project managers and engineers. He also has a keen understanding of contracts and finance, working strategically with executive management to hit REEDER’s targets. His leadership has been an integral part of taking REEDER from revenues of about $5 million in 2006 to over $50 million in 2018.
“40 Under 40 is celebrated to recognize brilliance on the rise up, 40 honorees each year, all under the age of 40, destined for striking accomplishments in their chosen field, from the corporate sector to maverick entrepreneurialism. They are leaders today and are sure to be part of the next generation that will make Tarrant County a great place to live and work,” according to the Fort Worth Business Press.
Through his leadership, Lane has implemented cutting-edge technology that interfaces with management procedures, job-costing, scheduling and communication systems. All of which have led to more competitive pricing, higher-quality and shorter project duration.
Lane’s creativity has led to a myriad of structural and organizational innovations within REEDER. He has worked with corporate partners to develop software platforms to better log and manage field operations. He has created and drafted industry specific management policies, project accounting functions and project delivery marketing proposals. His problem solving skills have led to new checks and balances that contribute to the “lessons learned” aspect of industry challenges. His ability to understand and embrace key market indicators and industry challenges, and transform them into viable opportunities bring added value to REEDER’s business model.
Lane is deserving of this honor because of his exemplary work ethic. Anyone who knows him immediately understands that he leads by example. He is tireless in achieving the highest standards for REEDER and understands that teamwork is more than a concept. His hands-on approach to problem solving is just one example of his commitment to his employees and executive team.
Lane’s integrity, loyalty, commitment and accountability underscore his work ethic and ability. His tireless attitude for excellence in others is exceeded only by the demands he makes on himself. His genuine concern for the “person” as opposed to the “employee” and his ability to lead by example, is obvious to everyone that works with him.
