Jared King Celebrates 2 Years

Staff Spotlight Jared King Project Manager

Project Manager Jared King is celebrating two years as a member of the Gillis Gilkerson team. After a recent promotion, he says he finds his job most rewarding and enjoyable because of the people he is surrounded by.

“My team is great. I enjoy meeting new people and collaborating with our clients,” said King. “It is pretty amazing to make others’ dreams and visions into a reality.”

Jared’s attention to detail, enthusiasm, and commitment ensures that the projects he manages not only meet, but exceed quality, budget, and schedule demands. When paired with his impressive experience in the construction industry, his problem-solving skills prove to be a significant benefit to his clients, especially during trying times in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.

From early childhood, Jared was exposed to hands-on building and all things construction by his father, a local construction professional. He quickly realized that gaining experience in the field is the best way to hone his craft and learn. With experience in underground utilities, site work, and renovations, Jared has a deep and thorough understanding of all jobsite components.

Jared is a graduate of the University of South Carolina and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics. When not on a jobsite or in the office, he enjoys spending time with his girlfriend, Samantha, and their two dogs. Jared is also the proud owner of land in Bishopville where he plans to build his future home one day; in the meantime, he enjoys exploring the property on dirt bikes and tractors.

What Our Clients Say

We appreciate the work that Gillis Gilkerson has put into the Maryland Food Bank Eastern Shore Branch as part of our Food First Capital Campaign. In addition to revitalizing our office space, Gillis Gilkerson has bolstered our facility to include a cold sort room that will not only enhance our volunteer program experience, but expand our distribution efforts, thus enabling us to improve the lives of even more food-insecure Marylanders on the Eastern Shore

~ Jennifer Small,
Managing Director, Maryland Food Bank, Eastern Shore 

“We want to express our appreciation for the completion of the apartments at Jefferson II in time to get the residents back in their homes. We believe this was made possible by the quality site supervision provided by Dale Reinhold. Dale’s masterful control of the site, the suppliers and the subcontractors was like a conductor directing an unruly orchestra. On site progress was consistent and organized. When problems were encountered, Dale professionally provided solutions. Dale’s quality site supervision made the Jefferson II project a success.”

The Severn Companies

“Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) has enjoyed a very successful relationship with Gillis Gilkerson for more than 20 years … Honesty and integrity are very evident with this company and I wholeheartedly recommend them …”

Executive Director,
Facilities and Properties,

“The original roof was only seven years old so finding out that we needed a whole new roof – the hard way – was disappointing. The team from Gillis Gilkerson addressed every single concern we had from the very beginning. They even called me on July 4th when we had bad storms in the area and asked if they could get inside the church to make sure everything was safe and secure. Now that’s commitment.”

~ Bruce Glisson,
Executive Pastor,
Allen Memorial Baptist Church

“Gillis Gilkerson has an exceptionally positive culture with everyone at all levels working toward a common end, each with his or her eye on the best possible outcome for the customer.”
