Founded in Little Rock in 1919, Garver made a conscious decision to build its headquarters in North Little Rock in 2009 because of all the opportunities and amenities the area offered to its employees, like access to trails and parks along the Arkansas River. Over the years, some of Garver’s most impactful projects have enhanced the livability for residents in the city, including the Broadway Bridge and the Big Dam Bridge while working with clients like the City of North Little Rock, the North Little Rock Municipal Airport, and more.
“For more than a century, we’ve worked with Arkansans across the state to help their communities grow,” said Garver Communications Director Laura Nick, who is also Chairman Elect of the North Little Rock Chamber of Commerce. “With more than 400 employees in the state, and almost 200 in North Little Rock, we’re proud to be a part of this vibrant community and are excited to play a role in its future.”
The 38th annual meeting included remarks by outgoing Chair Anna Beth Gorman, Executive Director of Women’s Foundation of Arkansas, and incoming Chair Dr. Jerome Green, President of Shorter College. Arkansas Department of Transportation Director Lorie Tudor, was the keynote speaker.
