MARYVILLE, Tenn. – Feb. 15, 2017 – Leon Williams Contractors, a Maryville-based commercial design-build firm, has hired Doug Irving as construction superintendent.

Irving, an honorably separated Lance Cpl. with the U.S. Marine Corps, is a Hollandale, Mississippi native who previously worked for a Knoxville-based contractor.

“Before, I was travelling state to state helping build automotive retail stores,” said Irving. “Making the switch to Leon Williams has been great for me and my family. I have more time to spend with my wife and two-year-old son, and working with Jimmy, Paul, Jordan and Scott, they’re all great. It’s really a team environment. Everyone is willing to help out and pitch in to make sure we get the job done on time and on budget.”

Irving has already worked with Leon Williams on the new DQ Grill & Chill in Maryville, and is currently working on the new Which Wich Superior Sandwiches fast causal restaurant that will be opening in April in the Hamilton Crossing shopping center in Alcoa.

“We’re happy to have Doug on board as we continue to grow,” said Jimmy Hawkins, president of Leon Williams Contractors. “He’s working toward his degree in construction engineering technology, and he’s been able to bring that knowledge, along with his previous construction experience, to the table for the benefit of our team, and ultimately, our clients.”

Leon Williams Contractors is also currently looking for a construction project manager/estimator. Qualified applicants are encouraged to email their resumes to
