Keefer received his bachelor’s in Industrial Psychology at Ohio State University and received his associate’s degree in Construction Management Technologies. While he initially started teaching as an adjunct professor, he pivoted toward the jobsite. “A lot of it has to do with family,” says Keefer, whose two brothers worked in the field. “I had the opportunity to get involved in the industry as a leader, and was lucky enough to discover who I was and what I liked, especially in Columbus, where there’s a ton of energy.”

As a project manager for a number of contractors, including Gutknecht Construction Company, Frank Messer & Sons, Elford Incorporated and more, Keefer has succeeded in every opportunity and challenge presented to him, and believes the people he worked with have guided him to where he is now. “I was lucky to get involved with individuals who provided me with an expectation of how to act, treat people and excel,” says Keefer.

When choosing Barton Malow, Keefer was moved by the culture. “We simply do things the right way and for the right reasons,” he notes. The company’s core message of People, Projects and Communities serves as a foundational element for every new build. For Keefer, that type of groundwork has him excited to begin a new journey:

“I’m compelled to put myself in a position to help others. Being part of the Barton Malow family and bringing the drive to support the rest of the team is my goal. I want to look back and think I made the company and my family proud.”
