TAMPA, FLORIDA (August 18, 2017) – Lindsay Ryle, a project engineer with Batson-Cook Construction, has been tapped for the 2018 NEXGEN Leadership Class by the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors.
The NEXGEN Leadership Training Program is an 8-month series of educational events designed to enhance the leadership skills and knowledge of high-potential construction professionals. Through monthly educational sessions, peer-to-peer networking and community involvement activities, ABC’s NEXGEN program prepares the participants for leadership roles within their companies and ABC.
“My passion is to mentor young people, especially those interested in a career in construction,” Ryle said. “I want them to understand that they have resources available to them to help them achieve success, but they must be accountable for their choices – what they do, and what they don’t do.”
Ryle, who joined Batson-Cook in 2012, is currently assigned to The Pearl Apartments project, a $57-million mixed-use apartment community under way in the Tampa Heights area. Her personal portfolio totals $208 million in multi-family and mixed-use projects.
Ryle holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the University of South Florida in Tampa. She is an active member of ABC, a graduate of Leadership Pasco, and mentors Batson-Cook summer interns. Habitat for Humanity is the philanthropy she most enjoys supporting, having participated in three home building projects.
She and her husband have a young son, and she enjoys fishing, spending time in or on the water, running, and just about anything else done outdoors.
Batson-Cook, formed in 1915, builds a wide range of commercial projects for healthcare, multi-family, office, hospitality, and private development clients throughout the Southeast. We have the heart of a family-owned general contractor with the reach of a global construction firm. We build with passion. We operate with integrity.
