Luke Thompson, Ajax Building Company

Where do you work and what is your role?
Ajax Building Company, Project Engineer

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I attended Florida State University and graduated with a degree in Finance. Shortly after graduation I began an internship with Ajax, that, in turn became a full-time position as a Project Engineer.  The steep learning curve coming from a degree in finance to a field I knew little about is something I’m most thankful for. The challenges I faced and the training I received filled me with a great appreciation for those I work with as well as a confidence in myself that I could do anything I set my mind to.

Where are you from?
Titusville, FL. (where the Rockets go off)

How did you end up in Tallahassee?
Like many others I came to Tallahassee for school, I stayed for a couple of reasons, the primary reason being Tallahassee is a very tightly knit community that gives you a strong sense of purpose and belonging.

What do you like about Tallahassee?
There are a number of things I like about Tallahassee, on that list are the friendly people, beautiful parks, great restaurants, bars, and stores that Tallahassee attracts with their universities, and affordable living.

What’s on the top of your Tallahassee bucket list?
Right now, the top of my bucket list is visiting Tomahawks 51 and IL Lusso.

What’s the best part about Access? Why/how did you get involved?
I originally got involved through Ajax and have remained involved because of the friendships and connections I’ve made. It’s also a great way to stay up to date on current events with great presenters at the events.

Favorite Access event and why?
Business and Brews. A great way to unwind on a Thursday afternoon.

What else are you involved in?
In addition to being involved in the Chamber and volunteering during the TRC this year I have begun to get involved with The Leon Public School System. Helping to build up the children that will one day work, live and raise their children in Tallahassee is so integral to the continued growth and health of the city.
