Will is Vice President and a stockholder of Denark. His success in the capital markets and in working with and dealing with multiple businesses including large insurance companies, private banks, and others prepared him for a role at Denark.

To get a feel for the overall Denark business model, he joined the team in 2018 and worked for over three years rotating between various departments. He began in Estimating and also spent quality time in the field before he was called to his new corporate position and the opportunity to be a shareholder. Since 2022, Will has been assisting the CEO on several critical tasks related to ensuring the continued sustainability and scalability of the company including finance and cash management, upgrades to technology, improvements in human development, future planning initiatives, and overall Corporate Risk Management. He is involved in Denark’s upfront business development activities including client relationships and contract negotiations, and he is also one of the check points for our Preconstruction Services quality adherence process. He currently leads our efforts in dealing with our main brokers for insurance carriers and surety companies.

Immediately after graduating, Will began his professional career in Finance/Capital Markets focusing on derivatives across multiple asset classes, spending 10 years between San Francisco and New York, earning and wisely investing before moving back to Knoxville where he focused on managing private real estate investments before taking a position with Denark.
