swirl header with logoFran BurkeIntroducing our newest board member…

Fran Burke is a people person. “I think that people are the most important thing regardless of the type of firm. Developing culture is the key,” he said. He lists interacting with employees and our team as one of the things he likes most about his job.

That’s just one of the reasons he was selected as an outside member to join the Draper Aden Associates Board of Directors.

Fran’s position as Executive Vice President of Faulconer Construction and his 37 years of experience in the construction industry will add a valuable perspective according to Jeff Lighthiser, President and CEO of Draper Aden. “Fran’s leadership and management skills, coupled with this knowledge of the Mid-Atlantic construction industry, will make him a great advisor to our strategic team.”

Francis A. Burke, III started as a surveyor and earned his way into top management with hard work. He knows the ins and outs of the business from top to bottom and at one time as a business owner himself. Fran has been at Faulconer for a dozen years and focuses on safety, teamwork, and strategies to maximize productivity and efficiency.

He looks at his new position as an opportunity to learn, contribute and make a lasting positive impact. His other new position is as a brand new grandfather. We bet he’ll be learning and contributing there, too!
