Executive Vice President
With more than a quarter century of construction experience, Kyle Whitesell is an award-winning Executive Vice President for Bob Moore Construction.
Mr. Whitesell has managed dozens of warehouse, distribution center, retail store, call center, office building, flex-tech center and finish-out projects for Bob Moore Construction. One particularly significant project is the Pioneer 360 Business Center, a 1.16 Million SF development along State Highway 360 in Arlington, Texas. This high-profile 70-acre project is part of the same strategic community development plan that includes the Dallas Cowboys stadium. The Pioneer 360 Business Center project began with the demolition and asbestos abatement of an abandoned 800,000 SF regional mall - more than 95% of the materials coming from the mall were recycled rather than sent to landfill. At the time of its completion, this project was the largest LEED for Gold Core and Shell Industrial project in the state of Texas.
