"We are excited to have Jerry join our team," said Paul Francois, President of Pepper Ohio. "His experience and industry relationships will provide strong leadership for our Cincinnati operations and will allow Pepper to better serve both existing and new customers throughout the Tri-State region."

With an extensive healthcare background, Jerry has led projects for Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, St. Elizabeth Healthcare and UC Health.  As Vice President and Regional Director, Jerry will lead Pepper’s operations in the Cincinnati area.  He will work closely with Pepper’s local, experienced project teams to provide oversight on preconstruction and construction activities. Recognized as a thought leader in design assist projects, Jerry's passion is to help owners achieve their goals and optimize the project budget.
