Leadership Team


Chad Frampton


As president and CEO of Frampton Construction, Chad Frampton leads the firm in overall planning and company direction. He also works to maintain positive client relationships and work acquisition.  Frampton began working for his father, Charles Frampton, who started Frampton & Associates in 1993. The younger Frampton joined the management team in 2007. Prior to that, he was on the operations side of the business as assistant project manager and was later promoted to project manager.

In 2010, he assumed an executive leadership role and led the company to four consecutive record years in growth and sales. With the construction market evolving in 2009 and 2010, Frampton saw the advantage to increasing the diversity of projects and decided to change the company’s sales strategy. That strategy, which focused on clients and companies that can produce multiple long term opportunities, resulted in a consistent increase in company sales.

Frampton takes great honor in the opportunity to lead Frampton Construction as a second generation construction firm. He earned a degree in business administration from Newberry College, in Newberry, South Carolina. A native of Charleston, Frampton resides in Mount Pleasant.

Prior to joining the Frampton team, Black served as the vice president and general manager for Roy Anderson Corporation, in Jackson, Mississippi. His main responsibilities included implementing annual business plans and policies to achieve overall corporate objectives.

Throughout his career, his experience has bridged all roles and responsibilities of a commercial general contractor, including leadership positions in preconstruction and project management.
