Joey Smith, vice president of Frampton Construction, has been selected by the Charlotte Business Journal (CBJ) for the 2021 class of 40 Under 40.
Chad Frampton, president and CEO of Frampton Construction Company, LLC, a regional full-service construction firm providing planning and design support, preconstruction, and construction services, has been named to ENR Magazine’s National Top 20 Under 40 List, which honors exceptional professionals in the construction industry.
The Top 20 Under 40 honorees were selected from nearly 300 entries received last summer for ENR’s regional Top Young Professionals competition. Every year, ENR’s 10 regional editions recognize the best of the next generation of construction industry professionals. Frampton was recognized on the Southeast regional list earlier this year.
A different panel of industry judges then reviewed the winning entries from all 10 regions and named the highest scoring candidates from each region to the national Top 20 Under 40 list that represents the best of young leaders from across the country. The winners will be featured in the August 12 issue of ENR magazine.
“It’s exciting to be recognized on a national scale with other construction professionals,” said Chad Frampton. “I am thankful for the opportunities and people in my life who have contributed to the success we’ve shared over the last several years. It has been my passion to surround myself with the best in the industry, including our team members, clients, and vendor partners. It takes an entire team to be recognized on this level, and for that, I am extremely grateful.”
As president and CEO of Frampton Construction, Frampton leads the firm in overall growth and company development. Under his leadership, the company earned the number 267 spot on the 2018 Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing privately held companies. That same year, Frampton was selected by Charleston Business Magazine as one of South Carolina’s “Best and Brightest,” and the company ranked third on the 2018 list of South Carolina’s Fastest Growing Companies. In 2017, Frampton was selected as a Forty Under 40 winner by the Charleston Regional Business Journal and was also named Man of the Year by the Lowcountry Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
