Jonathan Williams | Commercial Construction Consultant
A thirty year native to the triangle area, specifically Wake Forest, Jonathan Williams has witnessed the transformation of Raleigh-Durham first hand. Jonathan first began his career in real estate and construction at age 14 working for his brother, David, as a general laborer at Williams Custom Building in Wake Forest, North Carolina. At that time, Williams Custom Building specialized in custom home and light commercial construction.
Jonathan held the position with Williams Custom Building all the way through college, working part-time during summers and holiday breaks. His experiences on various project job sites, along with the guidance of his brother, allowed Jonathan to gain a practical understanding of the construction business and how quality homes and buildings are designed and constructed.
Upon graduation from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2009, Jonathan accepted a position working for a small manufacturing operation in Raleigh, North Carolina. Jonathan started as an inside sales team member and after three years became the General Manager of the firm. During his time as General Manager the company experienced record highs in revenues, profit, operating profit margin, and return on assets. Eventually, Jonathan accepted a position with a small business consulting firm assisting privately held mid-market firms with strategic planning and process improvement.
In 2014, Jonathan joined Focus Design Builders, LLC as a Project Developer where he specializes in the design and construction of facilities for small businesses and privately held firms. Since joining Focus, Jonathan has participated in sales of over $20 million dollars in new construction projects. Inspired by Focus CEO Paul Eitel to constantly seek more and more ways to make the expansion process easier for clients, Jonathan decided to get his real estate license in the summer of 2015.
In addition to roles as Project Developer with Focus and Kima Commercial services, Jonathan also serves on the Capital Area Work Force Development Board, The Franklin County Chamber of Commerce Board, and currently serves as President of the Koinonia Foundation of Wake Forest. Jonathan has a true passion for improving processes and making the commercial real estate and construction experience as easy and efficient as possible for the client’s he serves.
