Eddie Welsh holds a B.S. in Sociology with a minor in Construction Management from Colorado State University.  After working five years in the vertical construction industry in California and Colorado, Eddie served as a Peace Corps volunteer in the Republic of Panama between the years 2003–2005.  From this experience, his passion grew for serving the less fortunate.

After serving in the Peace Corps, Eddie worked with a number of international non-profit organizations serving as a liaison between donors and program directors for nearly five years. His primary objectives were to grow awareness, build teams and create structures within the existing organization that would lend themselves to sustainable growth.

In 2009, Eddie joined the Lockton Companies in Denver, CO. His primary role was developing new business opportunities specifically in the construction and energy industries. While working with hundreds of companies in many different countries, Eddie acquired a variety of perspectives on how to build and grow profitable construction companies.

Currently, Eddie serves as the Chief Operating Officer of Capital Holding Group. The company has 300+ employees and operates limestone quarries, asphalt plants, and a highway construction division predominately in the state of Missouri.
