Big-D Construction recently made strategic organizational changes among its key leaders to better facilitate the continued growth and service capabilities of the firm.

Cory Moore has been promoted from senior vice president to executive vice president and national managing director of Big-D's regional offices. Moore has been a part of Big-D and its management team for more than 20 years. He will be responsible for the strategy and growth of Big-D's regional offices and national footprint.

“Cory has grown from a labor position at Big-D in 1996 to his current leadership role in growing the brand nationally,” said Rob Moore, Big-D CEO.

Troy Thompson has rejoined Big-D as executive vice president. Thompson has more than 35 years of experience in commercial construction and development. He is regarded as one of the top leaders in the industry, and will join Moore in the leadership of expanding its national footprint and supporting its regional offices throughout the nation.

“We are very excited to expand our national footprint and expand our offices with Cory's and Troy's dynamic leadership,” said Moore.

Moore and Thompson join several other Big-D executives as part of recent organizational changes within the firm: Jack Livingood, formerly Big-D's CEO, is now the chairman of the board; Rob Moore, formerly president and C.O.O., has been promoted to CEO; Forrest McNabb, formerly executive vice president, has been promoted to president of the Mountain West group.

Founded in 1967 in Ogden, Utah, Big-D has grown to comprise eight regional offices, generating more than $1 billion in revenue and establishing itself on a national scale. The company was recently named one of Engineering News Record's Top 100 Contractors in the nation, and has been an Engineering News Record Top 400 Contractor for 27 consecutive years.

Big-D is certified as a “Great Place to Work”, and has been recognized as one of Utah Business' “Best Companies to Work For”, as well as one of the publication's Top 100 private companies since 2008. Big-D also has been selected as a Best of State (commercial construction) winner three times.
