At Verity, we are excited to share our journey of expansion and growth across the nation. We had the opportunity to visit Portland, Phoenix, and Dallas, connecting with our team and esteemed clients. The experience was truly inspiring, fueling our drive to establish Verity as a prominent national brand. One of the standout moments was our visit to the remarkable data center project in Hillsboro, OR, guided by Ryan Saulsbury, our West Coast lead, and our visit to our data center projects in Dallas and Phoenix. The scale and impact of our projects around the country reflect our collective vision and commitment to delivering exceptional results.
Since our inception in Reston in 2010, we have embraced growth as a fundamental driver at Verity. Expanding into Chicago in 2019, our fastest-growing region at the time, marked a significant milestone. Building on this success, we strategically expanded to the West Coast in 2021, establishing a presence in Seattle, Portland, and San Jose. Last year, we further solidified our position as a national project and construction management leader by venturing into Dallas and Phoenix. Our success lies not in complex business plans hidden away, but in the shared dedication, passion, and entrepreneurial mindset of our team. Together, we help shape the industry, transform communities, and leave a lasting impact wherever we go.
