It’s hard to find someone in the construction industry with a more diverse background than Jim Finkenbinder. Jim, who recently celebrated 10 years with Mowery and 33 years overall in the industry, is a project manager (PM) and estimator for Mowery’s Special Projects group.

In addition to PM and estimating experience, Jim has also worked in the field. His extensive experience in all three of these roles is a unique benefit to Mowery and their portfolio of clients. Jim believes the construction industry is rewarding, noting that Mowery goes above and beyond for their clients.

“I enjoy the team effort and the mindset of doing the right thing,” says Jim. “The long-lasting relationships created –whether it’s with clients or subcontractors – is so rewarding. It’s great to be part of an organization like Mowery that is relationship-focused.”

“Jim’s enthusiasm and dedication to our clients and our team members is something we should all aspire to,” says David Cross, president of Mowery. “While skills and knowledge can be taught, passion and enthusiasm like Jim’s comes from within. We’re lucky to have Jim as a part of our team.”

Jim enjoys spending his free time outdoors, specifically on the golf course, the beach or vacationing with his wife of 30 years, Chris, and their daughter, who is currently a senior in college. Jim is also a huge football fan and loves to watch NFL games this time of year, cheering on his favorite team – the Dallas Cowboys.

Fun Fact: Jim’s favorite day of the year is the first day of Fall.
