Our Ultimate CEO, Rex Kirby, honored as one of only one of 15 “2023 Ultimate CEOs” by the South Florida Business Journal, shares insights about the risks and rewards of starting a business from the ground up, how he defines success, and what he is most proud of in his career (thus far!).
“I’ve always felt like I’ve conducted business the right way. If I gave you my word or I shook your hand, you could take it to the bank,” Rex said.
Rex was recognized for his extraordinary contributions to Verdex Construction, the community and the overall economic fabric of South Florida.
Verdex Construction breaks ground on The Villas at Tuttle Royale, a 401-unit luxury apartment community in Royal Palm Beach for Lynd Development. Designed by MSA Architects, the rental community will feature 26 3-story garden-style apartments, 55 townhomes with garages and private, fenced ground floor terraces. Amenities include a resort-style pool, outdoor kitchen, fitness center, dog park, soccer fields, bike trail and lakeside putting and chipping greens.
The project is expected to be completed by the Fall of 2024.
The Indigo West Palm Beach project received a 2022 ABC Florida East Coast Excellence in Construction Award for quality.
Located in the City of West Palm Beach, Indigo West Palm Beach is a 7-story tunnel form apartment complex with 246 units and a 428-space precast garage. Amenities include a pool, fitness center, dog spa and game room for client Atlantic Residential.
The team overcame many challenges like navigating the COVID-19 supply chain issues, working on a tight site, and keeping up with the demand for leasing.
Verdex Construction officially celebrated the opening of their new West Coast office alongside the City of Tampa’s Mayor Jane Castor, Councilmembers Orlando Gudes and Luis Viera, the Tampa Bay Chamber, the Ybor City CRA and community members.
The office, located in Tampa’s historic Ybor City, allows Verdex to continue their expansion on the West Coast of Florida. They’re now up to 30+ employees and five active projects with more on the way!
