LAKEWOOD, Colo. – Pinkard Construction announced today that Tony Burke has been named president of Pinkard Construction Company and Jeff Barnes has been named chief operating officer.
A Pinkard employee since 1999, Tony Burke has continually distinguished himself as a value-added contributor for Pinkard and our clients in all phases of his career. Starting as a project engineer, Tony has moved through the ranks as senior engineer, project manager, senior project manager, and construction manager. Tony has a passion for client development and a hands-on approach to everything he does.
Tony’s strong relationship skills and ability to totally immerse himself in a project has led one client to say “...the way he conducts himself; the stuff he remembers and looks out for is just amazing.”
Tony has a Bachelor of Science in Building Construction Management from Purdue University, and is a LEED Accredited Professional.
Tony Burke has provided tremendous leadership in Pinkard’s senior living, municipal and healthcare groups.
