EY today announced that CEO Bruce Holland of Holland Construction Services is a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2017 Award in the Central Midwest. The awards program, which is celebrating its 31st year, recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Bruce was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 15 in Kansas City.
In May of 1986, Bruce had a vision of creating a firm that would provide high-quality, personalized construction services to commercial clients. Now after thirty years in the industry, Holland’s roots are firmly planted amongst a multitude of local businesses – some a century or more old – that have helped sustain the St. Louis region through good times and bad, setting the pace for continued future growth.
With Bruce’s leadership, Holland has developed a strong company culture, based on a balance between personal family and business family, customer satisfaction and employee satisfaction, and controlled growth that allows the company to maintain its values while providing the quality of service that has become its mainstay.
