NAPLES — DeAngelis Diamond Construction recently announced that it’s implementing an advisory board.
The Naples-based firm, founded by David Diamond and John DeAngelis in 1996, is one of the largest privately-held construction companies in the region, doing work from health care to retail to churches. The firm had $225 million in sales last year, up 64.2% from $137 million in 2014. In addition to Naples, the firm has offices in Fort Myers, Sarasota, Nashville and Birmingham, Ala.
The advisory board includes:
• Tim Cartwright, board member at the Florida Venture Forum and founder and managing director of Compass Advisory Group, which completes business transactions for middle market companies;
• Kelly Curry, a retired Health Management Associates executive who serves on numerous boards and ministries with international operations; and
• Steve Walling, founder and CEO of SJW Strategic Solutions, a business consulting group that advises businesses across North America.
“Every company needs to surround itself with leaders who will challenge its people to improve; otherwise the company stagnates and begins to lose ground,” DeAngelis says in the release.

Before they opened the doors of their commercial construction business in Naples 20 years ago, John DeAngelis and David Diamond checked the Yellow Pages to see what they were up against. They found 350 builders listed in the phone book in Southwest Florida. (Yes, the phone book. Smartphones didn't exist yet). "We decided the market didn't need another builder," DeAngelis said. "So we thought why are we going to do this?" Their answer? They wanted to create a different kind of construction company, one focused on a set of core values, book-ended by faith in God and integrity. The company's motto is "The Honor to Build."
