Chix Dig It Presents Cheryl Biagini
Cheryl Biagini, President of Roadworks Construction, Apex, N.C., is originally from Connecticut. While earning her bachelor’s degree in Accounting from the University of Central Florida, she interned for Granite Construction Company as a Business Management Intern. After graduation she was hired by Granite full time as an Office Manager for the Southeast Heavy Civil Division – working on projects in Mississippi, Florida and North Carolina.
During her five years with Granite, Cheryl worked on projects ranging from $22 Million to $187 million, managing an office staff that was responsible for all administration, accounting and HR functions.
After leaving Granite, Cheryl joined Charter Contracting Company, an environmental remediation contractor. At Charter, she worked in a strategic planning role where she led projects to improve company efficiencies, elevate company culture and develop recruitment and retention processes.
Cheryl and her business partner, Marcial, realized there was endless potential in North Carolina for quality civil contractors. With Cheryl’s skill set, she could run the “business side,” while Marcial – with his 25 years of field experience – could run the day-to-day field operations.
