Built on Leadership Kicks Off 2024 Cohorts

In 2024, Morgan Corp. will continue to invest in future leaders through the Built On Leadership program. This professional development opportunity is designed to empower individuals at various stages of their careers to build leadership skills to be applied to their work and

personal lives. “These leaders are the future of Morgan Corp., and by pairing our Social Contract with leadership skill-building, we can agree that the future leaders of Morgan Corp. will be confident throughout their careers,” shared President Jay Lynch*.

Two of the three annual cohorts began their Built On Leadership program in February: Keystone and Emerging Leaders.

The Keystone Leaders are individuals who demonstrate important characteristics including: holding significant

influence, demonstrating a Field First mentality, leading by example, treating challenges as opportunities, and connecting with and caring for our people. Seven leaders representing six of Morgan Corp.’s divisions were nominated for the inaugural class. They will spend ten months connecting with regional industry and community leaders to build critical skills in preparation for future leadership endeavors. Members of the class include:

Tyler A. – Operations Manager, Raleigh Division

Matthew D. – Estimating Manager, Industrial Division

Jacob H. – Project Director, Charlotte Division

Clay H.  – Project Director, Spartanburg Division

Chad L. – Shop Manager, Equipment Division

John R. – Survey Department Manager, Survey

Luke W. – Operations Manager, Spartanburg Division


The Emerging Leaders series is designed to invest in individuals who demonstrate promising leadership skills. Emerging Leaders will focus on collaboration, increasing self-awareness, communication, and understanding servant leadership. The group of twelve individuals representing ten Morgan Corp. divisions will participate in four two-day training sessions over four months. Participants will collectively select and execute a community volunteerism project in celebration of the final program day.

Members of the class include:

Ryan B. – Staff Accountant, Finance

Patrick B. – Project Engineer, Raleigh Division

Sandy B. – Safety Coordinator, Savannah Division

Erika G. – Survey Coordinator, Savannah Division
