J.M. Wilkerson Construction Co., Inc., established in 1982 by Jim Wilkerson, provided tenant interior renovations before expanding into industrial, office, institutional and concrete work.

JMW’s President and CEO is Brett Hawley. Brett joined the team in 1994, moving from Kansas City, MO to Georgia. His extensive knowledge in heavy construction complemented JMW’s already broad experience base.

Brett has helped the JMW team grow many new market sectors providing additional experience for future jobs.
JMW’s Vice Presidents are Austin Pruitt and Michael Travis. Austin Pruitt has worked with JMW as an estimator, engineer and a quality assurance representative. He is now the Chief Estimator at JMW. Before joining JMW, Pruitt worked for Blue Circle Concrete in concrete and construction materials sales for commercial and residential construction.
