Conlan founder Gary Condron has spent his entire life building. Starting off at the University of Florida where he received his Bachelor of Science in Building Construction, Gary officially entered the construction business in Houston with Brown & Root in the late 1970s. He then moved to Atlanta in 1978 to work with Holder Construction. After nearly a decade with Holder, Gary took the entrepreneurial leap in 1987 and founded his own firm, The Conlan Company, where he oversees operations and business development from their Jacksonville office.
Since founding, Gary has led by example in building Conlan from small local contractor to a national leader in light industrial construction with nearly a billion dollars in annual revenue. Company highlights include being ranked in the Top 100 of Engineering News Record Top 400 Contractors as well as being recognized as the #1 builder of warehouse and distribution product in the country.
In 2018, he was inducted into the Building Construction Hall of Fame at the University of Florida, where he and his wife Nancy are active members of the Gator community.
