Chad Elks

Director, Special Projects (TN)

Chad joined the W.E. O’Neil team in 2018 as one of our project managers. With extensive project experience in the municipal, industrial, and education market segments, he is an invaluable resource for our team. In 2020 he moved into his current position as Director of Special Projects.

Construction has been part of Chad’s family for generations. Not only was he born into this industry, but he loves every aspect of construction, especially the problem-solving required to find the best way to build each unique project.

Being forthright is a value that has been instilled in me since birth. I was taught and firmly believe in being forthright in everything I do. A person is only as good as their word.
