Spotlighting Julie Brown
From Julie Brown, Director of Client Service.
What do you love about the construction industry? Because of the nature of what I do, client service and business relations, what I love most about the industry is the people. I have the most amazing network of people that I can call on all the time, and I have for the past 10 years – these people are amazing, I’m lucky to have them in my life.
Why did you enter the construction industry? I didn’t seek out to be in the construction industry. It sort of found me. I’m glad it did. I stay for the people.
Why did you join the Tocci team? John Tocci. I joined because I wanted to work with him and the team that he has surrounded himself with. You have to be a 10 to work here, and it shows
What gets you out of bed in the morning? Running…there is nothing like a crisp morning run when the world is still asleep.
What are your thoughts on the state of the industry? Let’s get moving.
What is your guilty pleasure? I can’t believe I’m going to admit this, but it’s any ghost story program on cable, and horrible gas station hot chocolate machines.
What is the best advice you were even given? Don’t always live in the black and white areas…enjoy the gray sometimes.
What is your coolest project? I don’t work on specific projects, so I don’t have a portfolio to pull from, but right now, Tocci University is the project that I am most excited about – I can’t wait to share what we are doing with other people – I can’t wait to teach them how they can do it to help their institutions and companies.
How are you redefining your position at Tocci? I’d like to think that I am making business development about lasting relationships…
