40 Under 40: Robert Reeves, III
What is your greatest professional accomplishment? My greatest professional accomplishment was transitioning from a 100-year-old family construction company to a strategic leader at a large, nationally-recognized construction firm, Kinsley Construction, Inc. I was able to utilize my past experience to lead Kinsley’s efforts in the senior living market and in the Philadelphia region, closing the largest Philadelphia project and largest senior living client in company history.
What inspiring word of advice would you give to a young executive graduating from college today? Keep learning, be confident and set goals – not only in business, but in life. I’ve had the opportunity to travel and meet individuals from all over the world. Learning from their different perspectives and experiences helped me be successful in my career by gaining a better understanding of my vision for the future and where I want to be. I would encourage college graduates to travel and explore, experiencing different career paths and continuing to learn from others to create the best path for their life and career.
