Avis A. Phillips

Shareholder & Chairman of the Board

Avis Phillips has spent a lifetime in the civil construction and environmental remediation industries, and as the wife of our founder, Ted Phillips Sr., she knows P&J better than anyone. Her experience in the industry has taught her the value of hard work, resourcefulness, and character. A leader in her own right, Avis formed Avisco, Inc. in 1986 and became its chief executive officer, president, and sole shareholder. Under her leadership, Avisco became one of the top contractors in the Southeast. Avis has developed and operated shopping centers, commercial office buildings, art galleries, and retail clothing stores, and she has served as a trustee or board of directors member for several businesses, charities, and educational institutions. Avis has always been at the heart of P&J, and in 2010, Ted Sr. turned over stewardship of the organization to her. She has led the vision and direction of P&J since, with characteristic determination and innovation.

In 2017 Avis assumed majority control of stock in Phillips Infrastructure Holdings, Inc. (PIH) – a recently formed holding company for various subsidiaries (including P&J). The PIH family of companies provides heavy civil construction, ROW construction, and disaster response services on a national scale, and with Avis at the helm, we are carrying the P&J pioneering spirit into new opportunities.
