James Courtney

Why did you choose the construction industry?

I remember in eighth grade I interviewed an architect for a class project and thought that is what I want to do. I have been on this path ever since of architecture and now construction management.

What should we know about you?

I am a huge animal lover. My daughter and I have been volunteering at the Animal Rescue Project in Kalamazoo for the last nine years. When I turned 46, I came to the realization that over those nine years, I had rescued over 4,600 dogs.

Why O‑A‑K?

Being around for over 120 years, O‑A‑K has built a great reputation. The people have all been a pleasure to work for, and their sincerity comes through in the way they interact with clients and other professionals.
