As the construction firm continues to grow its national presence, Big-D Construction recently announced strategic changes to its executive leadership team.
Cory Moore has been named National President of Big-D Construction’s global family of companies. Moore, who most recently served as Executive Vice President for Big-D, will be responsible for piloting the company’s strategic planning & systems towards fulfilling the company mission of being the most sought-after construction company by customers, employees, subcontractors, and industry partners. Cory has been with Big-D Construction for more than 20 years. He is credited with being the catalyst to much of the growth and success at Big-D Construction.
In addition, Troy Thompson has been named Executive Vice President/Chief Operations Officer (COO) of Big-D Construction. Troy started his construction career on a large hotel project in downtown Salt Lake City in 1978. Since then he has managed nearly $3 billion in high profile commercial projects and held numerous executive-level operations roles.
“I am excited to help all of our great employees have access to the training they want and need, provide mentorship via direct leaders and create opportunities to advance their careers,” said Thompson. “I am fortunate to have been mentored by great individuals during my 40-year career, having held nearly every position on the operations side of the business.”
Rob Moore will continue to lead Big-D as the construction firm’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Under Moore’s leadership, Big-D has constructed some of the largest and most iconic projects in the country. This past month, Big-D was ranked 61st as part of Engineering News-Record’s Top 400 Contractors in the Nation rankings. Big-D has also been highlighted as the largest private employer in Utah’s Building Construction Sector per the Utah Business Magazine.
“These leadership changes allow us to manage, plan and grow with a consistent group of leadership over the next decade or so, and is a major step of our succession plan preparing us for a strong future,” said Moore. “We are an evolving, growing company. These changes ensure our leadership is solid into 2030 and beyond.”
