Jeff Mealey started his career in construction by enlisting in the US Navy in 1983 and joining the construction division as a carpenter. While enlisted, he was deployed throughout all parts of the globe to complete numerous types of vertical construction projects. At the same time, Jeff earned an Associate's Degree in Construction Management through Central Texas College, as well as numerous credits in real estate.
Upon receiving an Honorable Discharge from the Navy, Jeff began a career in the private construction industry as a Carpenter, Foreman, Staff Estimator, and Vice President at several privately held firms.

Matthew Yergo has more than 20 years' experience in the construction field. Starting out of school in the Architectural and Mechanical Engineering field, he quickly found that he had greater interest in building the projects that he had been sitting behind a computer and designing than he did in designing them. So, he decided to make a move into the construction field.
Starting out early in his career as a carpenter's helper and quickly moving through the ranks, Matthew continued working as a skilled carpenter in the commercial construction industry. In 1999, he was offered a position for a new and upcoming commercial construction company, Premier Construction Group Inc. He was the fifth employee hired during the company's first few months of its start up, and he has been part of the company's continued success and growth in the commercial construction industry since inception.
Working in the field as a carpenter, he quickly moved into a lead role as a Foreman. After a few short years, Matthew had been promoted to a Superintendent position within the company, overseeing multi-million dollar construction projects. Working with owners, contractors, architects and engineers for over a decade, Matthew continued successfully bringing projects to completion on time, under budget or ahead of schedule.
In 2012, he made a career move within the company and accepted a position as a Jr. Estimator. Having built relationships with clients and contractors, and bringing years of hands-on knowledge into his new position, he was quickly able to take on the new tasks required in the estimating department and was promoted to Estimator within two years.
In 2015 Matthew was promoted to his current position of Chief Estimator. As Chief Estimator he now oversees, reviews, & schedules all upcoming projects, reviews owner & subcontractor contracts, meets with clients, coordinates any future work for the company, and manages the estimating department.

I have worked at Premier almost from the day the business began. I have learned construction from the ground up, but before entering this field, I had 10 years prior management experience in a large corporation. At Premier, I pretty much set up the entire flow of office and office procedures. On a daily basis, I make sure all owner contracts and subcontracts are legal and binding. I ensure that we remain compliant in all states of licensure in order that we are able to continue to work in said state. I act as a liaison between owners, project managers, and subcontractors. I handle all aspects of human resources and accounts receivable and work closely with our controller on accounts payable, general ledger, and payroll.
Away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my two kids and their wives, and with my three grandkids. I like anything outdoors, and I have a real love for exotic vehicles and the beach.
