Will delivers comprehensive project planning and execution to Sagemont clients, tailoring his service to meet the needs of each client at each project. Will worked his way through school in the employ of a general contractor then at the University of Memphis HVAC shop. He was also the battalion welder in his local Tennessee Army National Guard unit at the time. His roots in the trades paired with his education and experience in real estate development give Will the ‘bought knowledge’ and technical aptitude to inform his clients on project feasibility and specific risks. He frames his process around understanding what defines project success to each client.
