Casey D. Graham
Earned managerial duties before he reached his 20s
35, Project Superintendent
Casey Graham got his first hands-on experience with machinery as a child. Graham grew up on a farm in rural Mississippi and worked long hours tending land, raising cattle and operating machinery that he learned to fix himself. At 15, he landed a job as a crane operator. Before his 20th birthday, he had progressed to foreman, superintendent and area manager. In 2009 he served as marine superintendent for the Nevada Lake Mead Intake No. 3 and was responsible for extensive underwater excavation to prepare the lake bed for an intake structure set with 12,000 cu yd of continuous-pour tremie concrete. That project concluded in March 2012. Graham now is a project superintendent with S.A. Healey, overseeing construction of the new $1-billion Gerald Desmond Bridge replacement project in Long Beach, which is scheduled for completion in 2016.

Marceid DeAngelo Hatcher
Made a positive impression on clients and young professionals
30, Project Engineer
Turner Construction Co.
Marceid DeAngelo Hatcher made an impression at Turner Construction shortly after joining the company in 2006. Right out of college, he worked as an engineer on large projects for the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) with budgets ranging from $86 million to $130 million. On those projects, he created and implemented a quality assurance/quality control system that played a key role in a project's being finished 10 weeks ahead of schedule. As a result, LAUSD implemented a specification requirement for all general contractors to have QA/QC programs with assigned personnel for future projects. In 2011 Hatcher co-founded Team Bright Life, a group that introduces young professionals to "life outside the box." The group focuses on health and wellness, arts and culture and professional development. He also participates in the Architecture, Construction and Engineering Mentor Program. In 2012 Hatcher was recognized by the Los Angeles Urban League Young Professionals in its second annual Men of Honor program.
