Evans General Contractors Expands Platform with Texas Leadership
Deren Wilcox named Vice President, Division Manager of new Dallas Office
DALLAS, TX (March 13, 2023) – Deren Wilcox, a 24-year industry veteran, has joined Evans General Contractors, one of the nation’s Top 100 Contractors, as Vice President and Division Manager of a newly established Dallas, Texas office. With locations already in the Southeast, and in Europe, this Dallas office extends Evans further into the Western United States. It represents Evans first location in the South-Central region and is a pathway to expand the company’s platform into other dynamic markets nationally.
“Deren is uniquely qualified to oversee our growth strategy efforts in Dallas and to help bring geographic diversity to our platform’s verticals,” stated RT Evans, President and CEO. “Right out of the gate, he’ll be supporting Advanced Technology, Manufacturing, and Light Industrial projects already in our pipeline”.
Over the past 10 years, Evans has continuously found work in the Western United States. With the bulk of that work concentrated in Texas, opening a Dallas office was a logical step to expand capabilities and increase the company’s ability to serve and support current and future clients.
“We always knew Dallas was a strategic market to establish a permanent home but needed the right leadership,” added RT. “With Deren’s experience, our quick and nimble leadership approach, and culture of excellence, I anticipate Evans’ capabilities and service offerings in Texas to flourish”.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to work side-by-side with the leadership team at Evans,” said Deren. “With Evans’ previous experience in this market and relationships we’ve both had with clients and subcontractors, we are poised to truly make an impact not only in Dallas but within DFW and throughout Texas. The vertical markets that have helped Evans become who they are today are parallel to the continued growth markets in the area. Having the opportunity to work with industry leaders nationally is extremely exciting”.
In his years in the construction industry, Deren has led teams and delivered best-in-class service to clients throughout the region. His initial focus as Division Manager will be to open a full-service office. Evans anticipates their move into permanent space to be completed in the next 3-5 months as they look to complete tenant improvements on a building located in North Dallas.
