“We see a lot of companies owned and managed by experienced and hard-working contractors, but their businesses are struggling in the current business climate because they don't know how to market their products and services; lots of companies don't have a basic marketing plan in place and many don't even have websites. That's why we're so passionate about the support and educational aspect of Construction Connection and our Consulting SimplifiedTM program,” says Kent Leighton, co-founder of Construction Connection. Leighton and his partner Suzanne Breistol have both been in the construction industry for many years and both know how to run successful and profitable operations. They understand the value of networking with people within their own industry who can offer advice that is relevant and will make a difference.

Leighton and Breistol are determined to help small and mid-sized businesses improve their online presence, hire quality employees and find the answers that will help their businesses grow. They work with individuals to teach them how to best market their skills so that they can find the right job, whether they are a construction accountant, a superintendent or an electrician. “We're also here to listen,” says Breistol. “Sometimes the best service we can provide is just to be a caring person that listens and doesn't judge, but instead offers feedback and encouragement to help people clarify their thoughts and actions.” Construction Connection aims to help the construction industry continue to recover from a long period of decline by providing a place for people to network, find answers and advice, find a job or a new employee and build their online presence.

Construction Connection was created out of a need for a more effective and streamlined way for construction industry professionals to find the right jobs or hire new, qualified employees and to find answers and solutions to run their businesses more successfully.
