John began working for Leo Journagan Construction 28 years ago in August, 1988. John started in the industry in May 1968 with the Missouri Highway and Transportation Department (formerly MHTD now MoDOT). He was hired as a construction rodman and worked QC in quarries/asphalt plants, construction surveying and construction inspection. After a 20 year career with MHTD he retired and went to work for Journagan.

He began college in 1966 at UMR (Rolla) and eventually transitioned into full time work with MHTD.  He earned his BSBA with an accounting emphasis in 1986 by attending night courses at Missouri Western State College.

He considers time with family most important, bass fishing is a close 2nd , Boy Scouting volunteer service, and, contrary to popular belief, golf is not his favorite activity/pastime. John is a dedicated work-a-holic who enjoys challenges and life in the Ozarks with his family.  He is blessed with, Pat, his loving wife, two daughters and one son, and 6 grandchildren.

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.
