Cook General Contracting is excited to announce the inclusion of Alex Green in the 2017- 2018 Class of Gwinnett Young Professionals in conjunction with the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce. The Gwinnett Young Professionals (YP) is a personal and professional development program led by the Gwinnett Chamber in partnership with Georgia Gwinnett College. The program encourages young business people to develop and enhance leadership skills, exchange ideas, share common interests, learn more about the area’s business community, and engage in the community’s future.
When asked about his involvement, Alex stated that he was eager to join the Young Professionals to better himself, the community, and the Cook Organization. Alex states that “Any group, organization, or community is the sum of its parts. The GYP allows me a forum to grow myself, and develop relationships with other future community leaders.”
He hopes to be able to share experiences with leaders from a variety of other industries, that enable him to bring fresh perspectives and techniques from those industries to Cook General Contracting. Since the Young Professionals organization contains members from all over the world, different faiths, and who have overcome different challenges in life it provides a new perspective for the junior executive. Alex noted that the “group is a diverse collection of talent, from all different backgrounds that make you want to push your own boundaries, explore outside of your comfort zone, and soak up as much knowledge as you can.”
“Anytime we can invest in our employees and our relationship with the Gwinnett Chamber at the same time it is a solid investment for our company. The Gwinnett community and Alex are an extremely vibrant part of our business. This program marries the best of both worlds,” states Geoff Cook — President of Construction.
Alex hopes to continue in a long legacy of Gwinnett Young Professionals that have a track record of great success in the community. Alex is currently serving as an estimator and project assistant for Cook General Contracting on numerous upcoming and existing jobs.
We wish Alex the best of luck as he continues to better himself and those around him this year.
