VP of Business Development
Originally from Cameroon, Africa, Paul grew up in Dallas, Texas and in Wake Forest, NC. Growing up with a strong Christian background, Paul has traveled to nearly every continent as a missionary and has a passion to help others change their lives for the better.
While initially drawn to a military career during his college years at The Citadel, Paul was offered a promising career at a respected construction firm in Raleigh, NC. In his ten years as Project Developer there, he enjoyed helping clients plan, design, and build more than $100 million dollars in projects. Co-founding the Wake Forest-based Focus Design Builders, Paul and his partners sought to create a commercial construction company in which the customer was the top priority. As CEO of Focus—and with his background in commercial real estate—Paul partnered that same year with Coldwell Banker Advantage as VP of Business Development. In these dual roles, Paul capably served the commercial real estate and commercial construction needs of many clients. Partnering with Peter as VP of Business Development here at Kima Commercial allows Paul to serve his clients even more effectively, and he loves working in that capacity!
Paul and his wife, Lori, have lived in Wake Forest for more than twenty-five years, are thrilled to be raising their five children to be active members of their church and community. Paul has had the pleasure of being able to serve through his position as the Wake Forest Fire Department Chaplain, through several leadership positions at his church, and through his volunteer work, including as a Past President of the Wake Forest Kiwanis Club. He is grateful for the opportunities the Lord has given him, and is always looking for opportunities to serve!

Commercial Construction Consultant
A 30+ year native to the triangle area, specifically Wake Forest, Jonathan has witnessed the transformation of Raleigh-Durham first hand. He 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 and held that position full time through college. At that time, Williams Custom Building specialized in custom home and light commercial construction. His brother’s guidance and his experiences on various project job sites 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. He started as an inside sales team member and after 3 years became General Manager of the firm. During his time as GM 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 accepted his current role with 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 well 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 clients he serves.
