“The cool thing about this position, it really is building the skyline of Memphis,” said Tony DeStefano, Vice President of Human Resources.
Superintendents are Project Managers on some of the most influential buildings in Greater Memphis, including the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. The role oversees day-to-day operations, manages sub-contractors, and communicates with clients. Superintendents are at the frontline of defense when it comes to job site safety, monitoring quality and efficacy and looking for ways to improve.

With their eyes set on the future, Flintco aims to add offices, grow, and be at the forefront of modernization in construction.
