Vice President

Eric holds the position of Vice President and is a 3rd-generation owner of Schaefer General Contracting. While he officially joined the team in March, 2006, during the course of the last twelve years his primary role has been leading the aging care business unit, representing approximately 60% of the firm’s portfolio. Project types span from new facility and campus construction to renovation projects. His business acumen and understanding of the role construction projects play in the Aging Care facility market enable him to deliver solutions with tangible return on investment.

As an owner and active Project Manager, he balances his time between those duties involved in furthering the organizational vision and mission and personally leading and overseeing project teams. His portfolio includes clients like Atria, Kindred Healthcare, Exceptional Living, Golden Living, Baptist Homes, Covenant Care, and Diversicare. Eric is a Certified Healthcare Contractor and holds a Master’s in Strategic Finance from IUS. He is actively involved in the Molly Johnson Foundation, is an active member of ASHE, and KSLA.
