Brumos Circle of Excellence students recently got an inside view of design-build industry leader Haskell when they visited with executives at the Jacksonville company’s downtown offices. John Paul Saenz, Industrial Group President, and Don Baldwin, Senior VP/Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer, hosted the group with a highly informative talk.
“Mr. Saenz and Mr. Baldwin executed a great presentation about the company’s culture, history and future strategic planning. It was an experience that I would do again in a heartbeat. These encounters help expand knowledge about real-life economics, business development, finance, business analysis and more,” BCOE member Timur Rakhmatov said.
Students were able to ask questions during the presentation and benefited from insightful answers.
“Being a building and design company, a business major student might not consider this type of industry when looking for employment,” said BCOE member Armando Olmeda. “But after learning of the capabilities and range of a company of this caliber, I immediately thought how I could contribute to their growth and development.”
The Brumos Circle of Excellence is made up of a select group of undergraduate and graduate business students from the Davis College of Business who are in the top 5 percent of their classes.
