Project management is the name of the game for Timothy Potthoff.
He’s been a project manager for Nabholz Construction Corp. the last two years, but five years in all – and a superintendent of construction since 2011.
At Nabholz, Potthoff has managed a resort project, banking infills and school jobs. With his experience, Potthoff lends a hand to Nabholz’s next crop of project managers through its Project Fast Start Program. He’s a spring 2019 graduate and now serves on the program committee.
“I am able to help mentor and train new employees throughout the company to help advance their careers,” Potthoff says.
He’s also earned accreditation from the American Institute of Constructors and the American Society of Health Care Engineering. Next up, he’d like to become an Occupational Safety and Health Administration trainer for Nabholz.
