As the St. Louis-based construction management firm marks its 30th anniversary, Tony Thompson offers insight for today’s entrepreneurs.
In December, the St. Louis American named Kwame Building Group CEO Anthony “Tony” Thompson as its Person of the Year for 2021. Through this honor — which overlaps Kwame Building Group’s 30th anniversary — the paper highlights not only his career and the success of his company, but his commitments to his community, equality in education and diversity and inclusion within his firm.
Based in St. Louis with offices in Atlanta, Dallas and Seattle, Kwame Building Group is exclusively focused on construction management services, including estimating, scheduling, project planning and value engineering, among others. It has completed over 6,000 projects and currently manages more than $300 million in work each year, with 75% of its work from repeat clients, including a 26-year business relationship with St. Louis Lambert International Airport (above).
