As a graduate of the Construction Science and Management program at Clemson University, Jason Stolz accepted a position with a top nationally ranked contracting firm. As a project manager, he learned to appreciate the tangible progress achieved through the building process. Leading projects within a variety of market sectors broadened his skill set and gave him an appreciation for the owner’s perspective. Over the years, he became more invested in the client’s success, which naturally translates today to his role as Director at Darden. With influence over the entire process, Jason leverages his welcoming, persistent, and organized nature to coordinate efforts on the owner’s behalf. A problem-solver by heart, he enjoys collaborating within the team to find the optimum solution to challenges inherent in design and construction. Breaking ground, moving dirt, and starting the structural elements bring the projects to life, but the real satisfaction comes when his team turns over the keys to a facility that precisely meets the client’s short-term and long-term needs.
