What has your company done to help others in the community? 
JB: All of our projects in some way effect the community and traveling public. We are committed to providing high quality projects in a safe and timely manner.
 
FNF's commitment to bettering the community extends to our youth which will shape our industry's future. FNF made a 5-year commitment to supporting the Arizona State University's Del E. Webb School of Construction program with a total of $75,000 to the school with scholarship programs. FNF hires five or more interns per semester from both ASU and NAU to help educate and train while also providing them with some financial support while being employed.
What message would you say to folks to be successful in this industry?  
JB: It is important to understand and assist owners and stakeholders that embrace partnering with prompt and fair dispute resolution. In this business, life is a joy when all parties on a project are partners; however it can be pure hell when all parties don't partner. 
What else would you like to share with the members of AZAGC?  
JB: I want to personally thank Rob Bottcher, FNF Vice President and current AZAGC Chairman for his dedicated service to the betterment of the industry. The remaining FNF team is also fully committed to supporting the AGC to continue to "better shape the industry of our future."
