Thomas F. Kennedy

A graduate of the University of Virginia (BSCE, 1972, MSCE, 1974) and a member of the Tau Beta Pi honorary engineering society, Kennedy is a licensed Professional Engineer in numerous jurisdictions throughout the country. He started his career as a Project Engineer with the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, then as a Structural Engineer with the Bechtel Power Corporation, performing structural analysis and design on nuclear power plants throughout the United States.

Seizing on an opportunity to relocate back to his roots in the Midwest, Kennedy left Bechtel to become a Project Manager in a design/build general construction company that specialized in shopping centers. He later took a position as an officer in another construction and engineering firm that specialized in shopping centers, heavy industrial buildings, refrigerated warehouses and auto dealerships.

Years later, Kennedy relocated again, this time to Florida where he joined Development Partners, Inc. (DPI) as Vice President – Construction and Development. It was at DPI where he met Michael Carp and formed what would become a tenured partnership and friendship that would later turn into Kennedy Contractors, Inc.

Kennedy is the firm’s Executive Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary and is KCI’s Florida and Louisiana license holder. He is tasked with overseeing the construction operations for the company. He is the Executive in charge of value engineering, as well as the principle design professional on those projects which the Company undertakes on a design/build basis.
