JIM DELEERS - President of DeLeers Construction

JIM DELEERS - President of DeLeers Construction

Jim DeLeers of DeLeers Construction would describe himself as a better Carpenter than a business man; more comfortable in “steel toes” than “wing tips”. From a young age he has always had a passion for the “big picture.” Jim vividly lays out the picture and with the help of the team, they manifest it. You can sum up his responsibilities in one word: “relationships.” He regularly develops new relationships and respects the ones already created, both internally and externally. Jim is responsible for the performance of the organization. He achieves this with the help of an excellent team of functional leaders.
