A Kelowna construction company owner has been honoured for his leadership.

Brandon Panopoulos, who owns TKI Construction, received a Construction Leadership Award. He was honoured during the annual Construction Leadership Dinner that was held earlier this week at the Royal B.C. Museum in Victoria.

Panopoulos was one of six provincial winners of the award, which recognizes those who demonstrate leadership and contribute to the construction industry. It is co-ordinated by the BC Construction Association.

Panopoulos joined TKI Construction in 2010 as a partner and became its sole owner in 2017. With a head office in Kelowna, TKI’s full-service building operation supports commercial, institutional, light civil and residential projects throughout B.C.

According to the press release, Panopoulos has “created a workplace that is supportive of women and diversity, and free of harassment and bullying. The company’s helpful and caring team culture also encourages constant continuing development for staff and a sense of family and teamwork. This same culture was a key focus for the design of TKI’s new office space.”

“I want to congratulate our deserving winners tonight for so ably representing the nearly one quarter million women and men in construction who are helping build a better B.C.,” BCCA president Chris Atchison said. “These awards and B.C. construction month are a chance to showcase individual industry success stories like tonight’s winners and how they’re using innovation and best practices to grow their businesses, diversify our workforce and support our communities.”
