RT Evans named President and CEO. Ronnie Cupp named SVP, Division Manager – Atlanta. Richard T. Evans to Become Chairman


ATLANTA, GA – January 2021 Evans General Contractors (Evans) announces executive management changes as the company ushers in new era, positions for growth, and celebrates 20 years of business. New leadership to support Evans’ initial vision and commitment to clients.

RT Evans, Senior Vice President and Division Manager of Atlanta, becomes new President and CEO, succeeding his father who now fills role of Chairman for the firm. After twenty years, Richard T. Evans Sr. (Tim), who founded Evans in February of 2001, opening the first office in Roswell, Georgia, will serve in an advisory capacity.

RT joined Evans in 2008 as an Assistant Superintendent cultivating a deep understanding of the industry by serving in multiple roles throughout the years.

“He is a seasoned business leader with a unique understanding of our operations,” noted Tim Evans. “Under RT and the existing senior management team’s guidance, I have no doubt the company will be selflessly run and continue to create long-term value for clients, project stakeholders, and employees of Evans.”

“From the beginning, our focus has been, and still is, to provide a high level of technical expertise through comprehensive preconstruction and construction services at a competitive price,” said RT. “In that capacity nothing changes. We are at the core the same company my father built. I will continue to honor that legacy while looking to improve the quality of our service delivery and expand our project portfolio”.

To fill RT’s previous position, Ronnie Cupp, has been named Senior Vice President and Division Manager of Atlanta after serving as the firm’s Operation Manager. An industry veteran, his leadership and expertise deepen the team’s depth and breadth of services and expands their network. Cupp is responsible for regional project support as well as management operations for Atlanta. He will also serve as the senior lead and mentor for the firm’s division leaders within expansion markets.

“I am focused on the team’s growth and aim to provide guidance that will perpetuate Evans into further success,” Cupp stated. “I’ve already witnessed how motivated the company is to further its reach and ways of approaching construction projects. I look forward to the collective direction we are taking”.

With deep resources and technical skillsets, Evans has the experience to successfully execute any size or type of project within focused markets.

“Evans is a mature company,” noted Tim Evans, “the leadership and management team we have in place are the strongest I have ever seen.”
