Today’s spotlight: Antonya Williams

Title: Vice president for the Southwest region, McCarthy Building Companies

Background: Williams guides a large, multi-state team delivering solutions for diverse and complex construction projects.

Source of pride: “In 2017, I was named one of Engineering News Record’s National “Top 20 under 40,” a prominent construction and engineering recognition, around the same time I welcomed my daughter, Daphne, into this world. It was a special time both personally and professionally.”

Surprising fact: “My passion for construction is a result of working in the field for my dad’s construction company in my youth. Some of my favorite memories are driving a dump truck, hauling heavy equipment and installing finish work.”
