The Southern Site story began when Ryan Clinard identified a significant opportunity in the development market while working for a home builder. He saw room for a professional site contractor that was extremely capable, treated people well, and was transparent about their business.
Southern Site was officially born in February of 2017 from nothing. The original plan was to find a small team and develop 25 lots in the first year. Thanks to demand, that went out the window fast, and the newly formed Southern Site team completed 75 lots with another 100 under development by day 365.
The growth hasn’t slowed since then, either. With a team in the hundreds of both industry veterans and young but eager to learn talent, Southern Site’s created a site work and erosion control presence in Nashville, Knoxville, and Huntsville. While they have an extremely nice fleet of iron and GPS on every Site, their competitive advantage comes from how well they treat and respect their people–they share everything and everyone at the business shares in the success.
"Southern Site Contractors is a great company because there’s so much growth potential here, but there’s still a family feel regarding how it’s run and how people interact. It’s a laid-back atmosphere, but there’s still structure to it as well."- Erin Eckhard
Before Chandler joined Southern Site, he owned his own landscaping business for three years and went to lineman school. He says that when he comes to work at Southern Site, it doesn’t feel like work because he enjoys it so much.
On the weekends, Chandler works at his small side business. In the winter, he hunts, and in the summer, he hangs out at the lake.
This company does not currently have any open postions.
