The Arizona Builders Alliance (ABA), a statewide construction trade association formed as an alliance of the Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) and the Associated General Contractors (AGC), welcomed Joe Duvall as the 2015 ABA President.
Duvall, Project Executive of Kitchell Construction, has been in the commercial building industry since 1985.
Duvall joined Kitchell right out of college 30 years ago. Since his early days as an estimator and project engineer, he has played a key role on many of Kitchell’s flagship projects including Howard Hughes Parkway Office, Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center, Flagstaff Medical Center, Motorola, Peccole Nevada Association, and Mountainview Hospital, plus scores of others representing hundreds of millions of dollars of work. From the very beginning, he has embodied the firm’s purpose and values of honesty and integrity, quality of work, and customer satisfaction. These qualities have made him the consummate internal operations auditor for the company as he travels from jobsite to jobsite sharing his know-how and providing counsel. Born and raised in Texas, Joe’s construction journey has taken him all over the country, from Arizona to Nevada (where he spent 15 years, seven of which running Kitchell’s Nevada office) to California to Colorado to Kansas to Tennessee and, full circle back to his roots, to Texas.
Today, as Project Executive, he continues to beat the drum as an advocate for Kitchell’s clients and for corporate fiscal responsibility.
Joe was installed as the ABA’s President at a February installation dinner held in Phoenix. He is a 2002 Graduate of the Arizona Builders Alliance’s Leadership Development Forum (LDF) and has sat on the Board of Directors for over 4-years.
The ABA exists for the purpose of advancing the productivity and profitability of our members and the construction industry. Celebrating its 21st year in 2015, the ABA is proud to service the construction industry through advocacy, education, and networking opportunities in the state of Arizona.
