From Bricks to The Benz

It’s gratifying to follow employees as they go on to bigger and better things. Sunday, I toured the latest project of my best buddy Mike Egan, the first employee of our 1970s partnership, Buckhead Bricklayers.

Mike worked two summers with us before drifting off to summer programs with his UNC Morehead Scholarship, then Harvard Law and 32 years as a top King & Spalding corporate lawyer, when Arthur Blank hired him to oversee the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium construction.

We were sorry to see him leave the bricklaying business, but he’s done well, probably improving upon his initial $2/hour salary.
