EXPERIENCE WITH EAB
Jimmy earned his Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Delta State University in Cleveland, Mississippi and worked as an Engineering Recruiter prior to joining EAB.
After interviewing with his former little league baseball coach, also known as the Vice President of EAB, Gaylon Richardson, Jimmy joined EAB as a Technician in Training.
Jimmy became a certified Test and Balance Technician.
The Alkek expansion to MD Anderson's main campus in Houston, Texas was Jimmy’s first major project. This project expanded the hospital by adding twelve additional stories to the existing eleven story building. As a project supervisor, Jimmy was tasked with making sure that all the equipment being served by the exhaust systems was switched seamlessly with little to no impact on patient care.
Jimmy was certified as a Test and Balance Engineer (TBE) by the Associated Air Balance Council (AABC).
As project coordinator, Jimmy led multiple teams over multiple years on the Zayed Building for Personalized Cancer Care project. This impressive building is The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center’s newest research facility.
Jimmy was promoted to Project Manager and led the team on Houston Methodist Hospital’s Walter Tower. This sophisticated project entailed a 23-story, 1,000,000 sq. ft facility that consists of dedicated patient floors, Operating Rooms, Catheterization Labs, Intensive Care Units, and Bone Marrow Transplant Rooms and was completed in 2019.
Jimmy was promoted to Senior Project Manager, and continued to oversee and pursue large healthcare and institutional projects.
Jimmy’s continual pursuit to serve at EAB with excellence earned him the role of Field Operations Manager at the Houston office.

What is your absolute favorite thing about working for EAB?
What did you want to be when you were little?
I wanted to be a professional baseball player. I grew up watching Ken Caminiti who played for the Houston Astros and was amazed at his ability and arm strength. In high school and college, I had one of the strongest arms on the field. I had a few first basemen that hated when the ball was hit to me. Sorry guys.
What do you like to do on your days off?
Hunting, fishing, boating, and watching my boys amaze me. My oldest son Alec is a Junior Elite gymnast training for the 2021 Trampoline and Tumbling Worlds in Baku, Azerbaijan.
