Stephen Jones
Senior Director, Industry Insights Research

The construction industry is undergoing dramatic changes. While avoiding a recession, the economy remains uncertain, with formerly robust markets such as warehouse and office construction softening. Delayed project starts, rising material costs and worsening labor shortages are increasing project risk and impacting contractor profitability. And throughout all of this, the industry continues its digital transformation. In his presentation, "The Year Ahead: Economic Forecast and Key Trends for the U.S. Construction Industry," Stephen Jones will share his research and insights to help you succeed in 2024.

About the Speaker: Steve holds an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and a BA from Johns Hopkins University. In addition to leading the Industry Insights Research team at Dodge Data & Analytics, he serves as Executive Editor of Dodge's SmartMarket Report. Before joining Dodge in 2003, Steve was Vice President of Primavera Systems (now part of Oracle), a global leader in project management software.
