Andrew Nelson – President
Mr. Nelson started Trident Construction, Inc. in 2008 with the intent to fulfill his personal goal of becoming a business owner. As with any entrepreneur, hard work and dedication were qualities he inherently possessed, but it would take him venturing out on his own to achieve his full potential. Thanks to these qualities, the community now has Trident Construction to properly service their needs.
Andrew is a graduate of LSU where he majored in Construction Management. Based on his experience in the construction industry, which spans over 18 years, Andrew realized there was a need in this area for a service provider built around customer service and customer care. His vision was to mold his business model within the community, around the highest level of quality of workmanship and professionalism, without compromising his ethics. As everyone knows, 2008 was in the middle of one of the worst economic times in this country in recent history. He knew starting this business at this time would not come without struggles. His perseverance kept him focused on his long term goal of making his business successful and nearly 7 years later his business model has a proven track record. He has spent the past couple of years looking for the right people to be a part of his core team and today he feels he has also accomplished this step for the growth and future of the business. His professional personality in front of customers, his product knowledge and the strength of the Trident team has enabled him to have strong relationships in the area and in the industry which has created a successful and sustainable business model. He is proud of what he has accomplished, but is most proud of the good that the Trident Construction name means to those who do business with him and his group.
