Meet Darrell K. Choates, Sr., his father, his son, and his grandson (that's 4 generations), the owners of Choates G Contracting LLC, a Black-owned construction firm headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The company has recently scored — not one or two — but seven new multi-million dollar contracts including a $30 million reconstruction project of JFK Airport's Terminal 1 in New York City and a $25 million construction project in Ghana.
With more than four decades of inimitable experience in the construction industry, Mr. Choates has garnered a laudable reputation as the CEO of the firm. As a certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), they manage large-scale development projects, construct senior living residences, and provide technologically advanced SaaS platforms creating Smart Cities.
In a career filled with highlights, Mr. Choates is most proud to have protected the legacy of his company as a strong minority-managed organization. Likewise, he has served the region of Philadelphia as the owner of a registered nonprofit community organization, Logan Community Enterprise Center, which among other non-profit activities sponsors bi-weekly food drives.
