Johnson & Galyon Construction was recognized by the City of Knoxville during their first annual Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Awards Ceremony. Mayor Madeline Rogero, Purchasing Agent Boyce Evans and Assistant Purchasing Agent Pamela Cotham presented eight companies with awards at the event. Johnson & Galyon and First Place Finish were recognized for their work on the Lakeshore Park Administration Building Renovation project with the Partnership Award. First Place Finish is a Women-Owned, Small Business Enterprise that was key to the success of the overall project. Johnson & Galyon was the only non-DBE company presented with an award during the ceremony.
