Tim Conlan and James (Jim) Stege were recently elected to the board of directors at the Betty Griffin Center.
Conlan is the chief operating officer for the general contracting firm Auld & White, where he has worked for 25 years. Conlan — who has extensive experience in the construction industry as a field engineer, assistant superintendent, superintendent, estimator, project manager, senior project manager and division manager — is responsible for management of all construction operations and obtaining successful performance at project and company levels.
In addition to serving on the Betty Griffin Center Board of Directors, Conlan completed Leadership St. Johns in 2016 and is a board member and team leader with ACE Mentoring at Creekside High School. He is also an assistant scout master with the Boy Scouts of America, Troop #280.
With more than 40 years of experience in the engineering and architectural (EA) industry, Stege currently contracts with POND — a 500-person EA firm — on ongoing architecture projects, and is also the owner/operator at Stegbone’s Fish Camp located in Satsuma.
Before entering semi-retirement, Stege was the managing principal with SchenkelShultz Architecture in St. Augustine from 2004 until 2015.
In addition to his new role on the board at the center, Stege serves as a board member with Investing in Kids (INK!), the St. Francis House and the St. Augustine Historical Society. He is also a member of the Rotary Club of St. Augustine, the Welaka (Florida) Historic Preservation Committee and the St. Johns County Democratic Executive Committee.
“We’re excited to have the professional experience Tim and Jim bring to our board roster,” said Betty Griffin Center CEO Joyce Mahr. “Their experience in the business community, along with their past and current civic engagement, will be a tremendous asset in providing oversight and support for our nonprofit agency.”
