Booth began working with Hardin at the Atlanta office in 1997, where he served initially as project manager for the company’s hospitality residential market segment. He oversaw such projects as the InterContinental Hotel in Atlanta, the Charleston Renaissance Hotel in Charleston, S.C., and four Hilton Garden Inns, in Denver and Colorado Springs, Colo., Alpharetta, Ga. and near the Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Booth has contributed to the construction efforts of the Charlotte Motor Speedway, the International Trade Center in Washington, D.C. and the Wyndham Palmas Del Mar in Humacao, Puerto Rico. He has spent nearly a quarter-century of his life devoted to construction and his membership in professional organizations includes Associated Builders and Contractors, the International Council of Shopping Centers and the Board of Advisors for the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce. The former Eagle Scout serves on the 2008 Friends of Scouting Campaign and in Atlanta he was an active member of the NorthStar Church, where he served on the mission teams, Shop with a Hero and men’s fraternity committees.
