KWA Construction Names Richie Keene First-Ever Vice President of Operations

23-year multifamily veteran Keene to help KWA reach $375 million.

In response to steady business growth, KWA Construction welcomed Richie Keene in March 2013, as the Dallas-based, multi-family construction company’s first-ever vice president of operations. With more than 20 years of experience, Keene’s in-depth management experience and his footprint within various areas of the construction industry, including resorts, multi-family, healthcare and HUD projects, will bring added power to KWA’s executive team.

“We are honored to have Richie join the KWA executive team,” said KWA Construction President Keller Webster. “Our company is in an exciting place of continual growth, and we’ve set some aggressive business goals to attain in our near future. Richie’s expertise and management-style blend perfectly with our KWA culture, and I’m confident he will help lead us to a prosperous future.”

With Keene as the head of KWA’s operations, the company is continuing its vision of becoming a $375 million company by 2020. Keene’s responsibilities at KWA involve overseeing day-to-day project operations of the business.

Keene comes to KWA from a Texas based multi-family contractor where he served as director of multifamily operations. Keene’s resume also includes experience working with highly-respected construction groups in Florida, Louisiana, Arkansas and Indiana.
