With the new name comes a new leader.  Patrick Kenny, President of Integrated, is now the new President of REX Construction Services.  Before starting his construction company five years ago, Patrick worked for national construction firms in executive leadership roles for 20 years.  Alongside the firm’s sister company, REX Engineering Group, he will be bringing his expertise in construction and management to the REX family.  Patrick has the proven ability to develop and manage a successful business program and direct construction projects within diverse sectors.  Commenting on Patrick leading the firm, REX’s CEO, Steven Uecke stated, “We are thrilled to have Pat leading these efforts with his disciplined and results-focused approach to our industry.  We look forward to continued relationships with our customers and trade partners for many years to come as we move forward in further expanding our capability and strength.”

“Just five years ago I was telling (asking) my wife, ‘I think I’m going to start my own company.’  Here we are five years later merging with two nationally recognized firms to create REX Construction Services, a full-service Design-Build firm, offering General Contracting, Construction Management and Engineering services,” said Patrick Kenny, President of REX Construction Services.  “I could not be more excited to continue our core commitments of collaboration, client service and satisfaction, to our customers, employees and subcontractors.”
