In 2010, veteran contractors Kevin French and Denis Landry, each with 30 years of commercial experience, joined forces to establish Landry/French Construction.
Having gained extensive experience from their years with national construction firms, as well as their deep roots in the Maine market, the two tapped an extensive list of long-standing clients and former employees with national experience to build one of Maine’s leading commercial construction companies.
Awards and recognition for this seven-year-old company include the 2016 Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in America; the 2016 Maine Governor’s Award for Business Excellence; 2016 and 2015 Best Places to Work in Maine; and 2016 and 2015 Associated General Contractors (AGC) Build Maine Awards.
Kevin’s entrepreneurial spirit and can-do attitude have been instrumental in his rise through the ranks at various companies during his 30 years in commercial construction.
Early in his career, Kevin served as Director of Business Development for PC Construction, formerly known as Pizzagalli Construction, and started their Maine office. It was in this role where Kevin built strong relationships and network of clients, many of whom have followed him throughout his career. He later went on to purchase a Maine-based construction company where, under his leadership, he expanded the company’s portfolio by taking on larger, more technically challenging projects.
As Chief Executive Officer at Landry/French, Kevin is responsible for strategic planning, company vision, business growth and talent acquisition. His success is attributed to his passion for building lasting relationships, empowering team members, and inspiring a culture of continuous improvement. Under his leadership, the company’s upward trajectory earned Landry/French a spot on the 2016 Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Companies in the country.« Back to Leadership
