CEM 2019 Feature

“Sustained growth for Arizona and the metro area is something that I have always had confidence in, even through the last recession. I would bet on Greater Phoenix all day long and feel good about it.” – James Murphy

Willmeng was featured in the January issue of Commercial Executive Magazine (CEM). The beginning of 2019 also marked James Murphy’s 20th anniversary at Willmeng.

“Our backlog going into 2019 and forecast for the year overall is very strong,” he says. “Willmeng, like most established general contractors and subcontractors in the Valley, is forecasting a record or near-record year in 2019.”

Working in multiple sectors including office, retail, industrial, hospitality and health care, Willmeng takes on jobs for shell construction, tenant improvement and adaptive reuse.

“In terms of volume, we still see new construction in volume over adaptive reuse,” he says. “Willmeng continues to focus on working for the best-of-the-best in each market sector, and is committed to maintaining a seat at the table for all projects big and small.”

Murphy’s focus in 2019 will remain on a diverse mix of projects and continuing to set the firm apart from its competitors through their ability to support actual deals.

“I view the lease transactions as the heartbeat of the industry and ultimately what makes our client’s successful,” he says. “As a result, we are hyper-focused on continuing to hone our budgeting skills in the pre-Letter of Intent (LOI) stage of a transaction to be a valued partner in getting ink on deals large or small — that is our true business model and single largest area of focus.”
