At its 2022 Excellence in Construction (EIC) Awards, the Associated Builders and Contractors of the Carolinas recognized and honored Brian Gallagher of Graycor for his service to the organization with what the association describes as the chapter’s most prestigious regional award — the ABC Kirby Award.
“ABC Carolinas’ highest achievement award, the Kirby Award, was named after Tom Kirby. Tom was the epitome of what ABC stands for,” said Chris Moore, president of CarolinaPower and incoming ABC Carolinas Chairman. “His lifelong dedication, personal passion, and professional pledge to the construction industry, truly made him a champion for ABC. He talked the talk and walked the merit shop walk. We are thrilled to announce Brian Gallagher, Vice President Corporate Development at Graycor, as our Kirby Award Recipient for 2022!”
