Albion Employee Spotlight: Justin Robinson
“Hire really good, smart people, and get out of their way.” – Brian Newsome, Albion Executive Vice President
You may remember this quote from our blog post: “The Untold Story of Albion.” In light of Brian’s ability to find and retain the industry’s top talent, I wanted to spotlight our incredible team here at Albion. Each month, we will virtually introduce you to a member of our team. I look forward to chatting with my teammates about their interest in the construction industry, hobbies outside of work, and more. In this week’s ‘Employee Spotlight’, we are introducing you to our Project Engineer, Justin Robinson.
Justin has been with Albion for over a year. He is a recent graduate of Kennesaw State University and is our newest full-time employee. He started in our intern program and just recently accepted a full-time position. I asked Justin a few questions about the industry and working at Albion.
