Start with good people, lay out the rules, communicate with your employees, motivate them and reward them. If you do all those things effectively, you can’t miss.

JUSTIN SHAW   PRESIDENT

A graduate from Fordham University with a BA in Economics and Finance, Justin started  JCS Construction Group, Inc. in 2005 after working for a commercial real estate brokerage firm in NYC.  Upon moving back to Greenwich, he started JCS  and set out on a goal to learn real estate and construction development from the ground up.  Justin began by building spec homes in Greenwich, CT and then began to contract work in both the commercial and residential sectors including interior fit outs and ground up construction.

Committed to growing a brand known for its determination, quality, respect and excellence, Justin prides himself on his company’s ability to meet hard situations head on while maintaining poise and integrity.  Because of this commitment to excellence, JCS has grown triple digits year after year and has emerged as a prominent player in the construction and development industry.  JCS recently opened up a second office in midtown Manhattan in order to meet the increasing demand for JCS services in the five boroughs.

Justin currently lives in Greenwich with his wife and four children.  He serves as President and Founder of the Greenwich Property Owners Association, is an active member of NAIOP, Fairchester Chapter of the Young Presidents Organization (YPO),  and is very involved in many other local real estate and property development groups.  He was just recently awarded the honor by the Fairfield County Business Journal of being named one of Fairfield County’s people to watch under the age of 40.  Justin sits on the board of  a foundation close to his heart, “The Shaw Family Foundation,” whose mission is to give back through local and national charities.
