Leadership Team

Carter has been an entrepreneur his entire life. He began selling Christmas trees at age 8. He held his first business license at age 15 boasting a small landscaping company, which prospered so much that he sold it at age 21. He purchased a Bobcat and began clearing and grading for homeowners, and his reputation for service and quality began to grow as quickly as his vision for the future. A mini-excavator was added to the Bobcat. Then a loader. Then an excavator. And on and on. The entrepreneur was soon surrounded by a team and a fleet.

Today, Carter enjoys being as hands-on as he was selling Christmas trees. He is often personally interacting with customers, team members, or field personnel onsite, driving the safety and production of crews and overseeing the quality craftsmanship that has carried C.D. Hall Construction to where it is today. Having done it all, Carter is dynamically involved in every aspect of the business as he was once himself the Estimator/Superintendent/Project Manager/Accountant during the company’s formative years. And while his knowledge and experience are vast, Carter is always reading, asking questions, listening, and watching all around him out of his desire to continually learn, grow, and be the best. His relentless pursuit of excellence in everything he does for the benefit of others shapes the culture of the C.D. Hall Construction team.

When you’re the type of guy that can do it all, it is difficult to capture an appropriate job title to suit that person. Formerly our Concrete Superintendent, Steve’s gifting and intellect go beyond any single specialty. What truly sets this Eagle Scout apart is his ability to take any task given, embrace it, own it, and make it happen. Steve is remarkably technical which is in part owing to his meticulous personality but also a product of his education, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Building Construction from Virginia Tech.

Steve serves as our Shop Foreman & Logistics Manager, leading a team of mechanics and welders that are responsible for the care and maintenance of hundreds of pieces of owned equipment that comprise the C.D. Hall fleet. Steve and his team keep the fleet running in peak condition but are also poised to respond quickly so that when repairs are needed, a minute isn’t wasted in getting equipment back in working order.

John owns all aspects of preconstruction from takeoff to bid, to proposal development and contract negotiations. He is fanatical about details and leaves no ink on a set of plans or specifications uncounted. He has more than fifteen years estimating experience covering a wide range of commercial site development and demolition jobs ranging from this one’s on the house to $36M. John also spent a few years onsite as a project manager and understands the realities and complexities of the field. He is an active member of the National Demolition Association’s Education Committee which supports the premier organization’s strategic goal to provide educational programming necessary to be leaders in environmental stewardship, safety, training, and professional competency. John holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering from Geneva College.

John would argue that he has the easiest job in the company – get this team with these crews in front of a client one time, and we have a partner for life!

Russell not only holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Richmond, a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Accounting from Virginia Commonwealth University, and CPA Certification, but also more than thirty years of experience in the site and utility construction industry.

Russell has revolutionized C.D. Hall Construction’s accounting systems and job costing practices which have been key components in validating and upholding our outstanding corporate financial health.

Tim’s experience as a construction manager, department head for a civil engineering firm, and senior-level transportation inspector has shaped him into a sharp, well-rounded, forward-thinking, and resourceful Project Manager. Tim knows what it takes in the field to produce results and he executes the tasks at hand behind the scenes to stay ahead of lightning-fast crews. You’ll often find him on the job as well, interfacing with our customers, driving production, and ensuring that CD Hall’s standards of quality are on full display.

Additionally, Tim serves as our Safety Director and is OSHA 510/500 Certified, which endorses him as an OSHA 10- and 30-hour Trainer.

The name Gary List has become synonymous with General Superintendent in central Virginia. Gary is widely known and highly respected across the industry by owners, developers, contractors, engineers, and inspectors. Becoming a rock star General Superintendent doesn’t happen overnight though. Gary began operating heavy equipment in 1986 before he was promoted to a foreman position within a couple years. A few years after that Gary was functioning as General Superintendent/Project Manager and has been utilizing his vast knowledge of the field ever since.

Gary manages the day-to-day sitework operations for all of our commercial crews. He utilizes his 30+ years’ experience to ensure that we are operating with safety as our first priority and at 100% max efficiency to drive job production and to make certain that our customers’ expectations of safety, speed, and quality are always met or exceeded. Whether large or small, Gary is intimately involved in every job we do. But despite all of his experience and know-how, Gary is humble and approachable, which is perhaps the greatest value to our customers.
