Holt Brothers Construction, a Carolinas AGC member, has announced Patrice Gilmore as its new vice president of supplier diversity & inclusion, leading a critical component of the company's long-term strategy for growth. In this role, Gilmore will lead and further promote the company's established efforts to maximize procurement opportunities with corporations and diverse businesses such as suppliers, contractors and subcontractors.

A respected industry veteran, Gilmore brings over 15 years of experience in supply chain management and procurement in the corporate real estate field.  She was formerly senior supplier diversity manager, Atlantic and California regions, at Lend Lease Inc. where she was responsible for the development and implementation of a diversity program aimed at providing assistance to Small, Minority and Women Business Enterprises (SMWBE) and growing the use of SMWBEs in the construction industry.

"Companies today are increasingly committed to spending with minority-and women-owned businesses to ensure equal access to economic opportunity," says Terrence Holt, president of Holt Brothers Construction.  "The addition of Patrice punctuates our commitment and makes Holt Brothers Construction uniquely situated to continue our leading minority-owned business position both in the Triangle and the construction industry as a whole."

"Patrice’s commitment to the community is matched with construction experience and organizational skills," adds Holt Brothers Construction Vice President Torry Holt.  "This newly created position is key for the continued growth of the company and underscores our community relations commitment."

Born in Lexington, North Carolina, Gilmore graduated from North Carolina A&T State University where she majored in Construction Management.  She currently resides in the Raleigh-Durham area.
