GE Johnson Hires General Manager for Kansas City Expansion

GE Johnson Construction Co. hired Derek Cox as general manager to manage operations, preconstruction, and business development efforts for the Kansas City market. Since October 2019, Derek has leveraged his extensive industry experience and local market knowledge to ignite GE Johnson’s expansion in this market.

Derek has more than 17 years of experience in nearly every facet of construction, most recently as a developer/builder. He is leading GE Johnson’s expansion in this market with an immense amount of local knowledge of the Kansas City market, industry relationships, and focus on community.

“What is fascinating about GE Johnson, a Colorado firm, is that it has roots in Kansas, where founder Gil Johnson and his son, current President and CEO Jim Johnson, were born. The culture at GE Johnson is built on ingenuity and relationships; we truly care about our employees, clients, and community. GE Johnson is a perfect fit for the Kansas City region, and I am excited to lead our efforts here,” said Cox.

In the Kansas City region, GE Johnson focuses on several market sectors including healthcare, advanced technology, public/federal, higher and K-12 education, and mixed-use/office.
