Employee Highlight: Senior Project Manager Del Crow
Tuesday November 28, 2017
Since joining the Lamar Smith family just two years ago, Senior Project Manager Del Crow has shown his passion, talent and leadership in a variety of ways. When coming to Lamar Smith Homes, Crow brought over twenty years of experience in the construction industry and several outstanding awards. Crow is just one member of the strong team that helps provide the leadership and decision-making that keeps Lamar Smith Homes the leading home building company in the greater Savannah area, as well as in Brunswick and Kingsland.
Crow initially began his journey in the medical field as a chemical pre-med major in college, spending all his free time doing electrical work in the construction field. After two years of juggling both careers, Crow realized his heart was with construction. He graduated with a degree in Construction Management and a minor in Business from Georgia Southern University.
Throughout his journey, Crow has worked for two of the largest national builders in the country, as well as small private builders. “My happiest days were with one of the small builders,” states Crow. “I made the choice to come work for Lamar Smith for several reasons. First, once you meet Lamar in person and speak with him you just say to yourself ‘this is a guy I have to work for.’ You’re part of the family here; the entire Smith family would give you the shirt off their backs if you needed it.”
Crow continued to rave about working at Lamar Smith, saying, “Working here allows me the opportunity to put my mark on something. At the big national builders, you’re a number, a robot. Here at Lamar Smith, your thoughts matter and your suggestions can lead to changes that have a positive impact on the business. I’m very honored to be part of our team.”
In his role at Lamar Smith Homes, Crow’s main focus is quality inspecting the homes, managing vendors, and providing a high level of customer service to the buyers. Currently, he is the senior project manager over the Brunswick and Kingsland division.
Crow has been a resident of a Lamar Smith community, Lost Plantation, for 14 years. He chose the community based on several variables that were perfect for his growing family. Cost effectiveness was a big consideration, along with the feel and safety of the community and the opportunity for his future children to attend an excellent school system.
The admiration given to Lamar Smith Homes by Crow is returned fully! One of the things the Lamar Smith team most admires about Crow is the way that he gives back to our community – by putting smiles on the faces of children who enjoy the traditions of hunting, fishing and the great outdoors. A few times every year, he helps guide hunts for the Outdoor Dream Foundation. ODF raises funds for children with terminal or debilitating illnesses and sends them on hunting and fishing adventures all over the world.
“I got involved with ODF because of my admiration for men in my family, my love of kids and my love of the outdoors,” said Crow. “My grandfathers and my own father taught me it was our duty as men to teach and inspire kids and to also serve others. God blessed me with healthy active children, and in my eyes, it is a gift. It is also my duty to give something back because of my blessings. ODF allows me to do all of these things by donating a little of my time and outdoor skills to make a child’s dream come true.”
