SAN ANTONIO - As F.A. Nunnelly General Contractor celebrates its 95th anniversary, the organization is preparing to transi-tion its legacy to a new generation of lead-ers by the time of the 100th anniversary.

 

 

 

 

 

 

    Current principals and third-generation owners Philip Nunnelly, president; Scott Nunnelly, vice president; and Doug Nunnelly, secretary/treasurer, have found the next generation that will run the company beyond its century milestone.
    Blaine Beckman, vice president of operations, and Greg Vaughn, vice president of preconstruction, have already been helping manage the company for the past year and will continue a gradual transition over the next six years. Both Beckman and Vaughn stated that it is an exciting time to work at F.A. Nunnelly. “Stable company growth paired with abundant opportunity for not only the organization, but for every employee has led to an amazing company culture,” says Beckman. They have already begun the gradual transition and are honored to take the torch from the Nunnelly family and continue their 95-year legacy in San Antonio and the construction community.
    Floyd Arthur Nunnelly Sr. founded the company in 1922 according to the company bylaws, though the Nunnellys have reason to believe the company may have been established in 1917. As one of the oldest companies in San Antonio, integrity is a running theme among its current and future leaders.
    Philip, Scott, and Doug Nunnelly have all been on job sites or at groundbreakings from the time they were children, and the two generations that came before them emphasized the importance of integrity in their relationships with clients and subcontractors, the quality of their work, and the way they conducted themselves in business. “Integrity is the core value of the past and will continue to be the core value of the future,” says Vaughn.
    When the heirs to the Nunnelly legacy were being chosen five years ago, Beckman was new to the company but quickly distinguished himself. Vaughn came in two years ago and was hired at that time with the hopes of him becoming the other half of this new leadership team.
    Scott and Philip have been with the company almost continuously for the last 50 years, starting their careers in the industry as teenagers. Scott adds, “My whole construction career has been pretty much working with family, and I would not change a thing. These guys have been a blessing for me.”
    Regarding the transition, Doug comments, “These two gentlemen have already taken over huge responsibilities here. Philip, Scott, and I are excited to work with them as F.A. Nunnelly moves into its next 100 years.” –mh
