In nearly three decades working in the highly competitive tenant improvement space, Patrick Christensen, president of Sturtevant-based Horizon Retail Construction, has tried to be direct.
“An effective leader doesn’t leave a lot to be determined. They provide clear information, and they do so by managing their people and treating their clients with the highest integrity,” Christensen said. “That’s what I have strived to do from day one in this business.”
That approach has led to one of the most successful contracting businesses in the region. Horizon has more than 90 office employees locally and handles more than 1,500 projects annually in all 50 states. Those projects are managed by a team of 150 field superintendents stationed throughout the country for instant mobilization — an entire organization tooled specifically for tenant improvement.
