Carter has been an entrepreneur his entire life. He began selling Christmas trees at age 8. He held his first business license at age 15 boasting a small landscaping company, which prospered so much that he sold it at age 21. He purchased a Bobcat and began clearing and grading for homeowners, and his reputation for service and quality began to grow as quickly as his vision for the future. A mini-excavator was added to the Bobcat. Then a loader. Then an excavator. And on and on. The entrepreneur was soon surrounded by a team and a fleet.
Today, Carter enjoys being as hands-on as he was selling Christmas trees. He is often personally interacting with customers, team members, or field personnel onsite, driving the safety and production of crews and overseeing the quality craftsmanship that has carried C.D. Hall Construction to where it is today. Having done it all, Carter is dynamically involved in every aspect of the business as he was once himself the Estimator/Superintendent/Project Manager/Accountant during the company’s formative years. And while his knowledge and experience are vast, Carter is always reading, asking questions, listening, and watching all around him out of his desire to continually learn, grow, and be the best. His relentless pursuit of excellence in everything he does for the benefit of others shapes the culture of the C.D. Hall Construction team.
