Owen‑Ames‑Kimball Company (O‑A‑K), a preeminent general contractor with a longstanding presence in Southwest Florida, has announced the appointment of Richard Borton as a project manager in the company’s Fort Myers office.

He later worked as a project manager in the building industry on diverse, multi-million dollar projects including assisted living facilities, sports centers, colleges, schools, roadwork hardscaping and high-end residential. Being proficient at both estimating and project management allows him to be involved from pre-construction through to close-out for any project.
