“I came to work with Rhodey because of the Firm’s reputation for quality and integrity. You just don’t find that every day.”

When he joined the Rhodey team, Jim Imperiale, LEED AP, DBIA, was already an industry veteran with more than 30 years of work in civil construction. Jim has experience in nearly every aspect of the business, from field work to management to business ownership, and he brings a high degree of integrity and fairness to his professional relationships. As a vice president in the company’s general construction and subcontractor services divisions, Jim oversees each step of the building process to successfully realize the customer’s vision.

Jim’s hands-on approach to each project begins with helping to determine specs and estimating. From there, he guides every aspect of the job, including field supervision, scheduling, client service, architect and engineer relationships, contracts and change orders, and preparing warranty packages as part of the closing phase. Jim takes a proactive and organized approach to project management, and he has an excellent track record of delivering projects on time and on budget.

After attending Fontbonne University as a business administration major, Jim owned his own concrete restoration company, where he directed projects at a high level and also managed
day-to-day issues.

Jim’s experience as a subcontractor working with Rhodey introduced him first-hand to the exceptional way that our company values our suppliers and subcontractors as well as our clients. Jim recognized that these relationships — built on partnership and trust — make our company stand apart. “I liked the culture of the company from the contacts I had made there,” he says.
