Gray Meredith was born and raised in Vidalia and is a 1999 graduate of the United States Naval Academy with an engineering degree. Upon graduation, he entered the U.S. Marine Corps as a Logistics Officer for five years. Following his time of service, Gray followed his dream of working in the construction field as a project manager for a large commercial construction company in Jacksonville, Florida. This time was invaluable by exposing Gray to numerous types of new construction and renovations and helped shape his vision of how a construction company should operate. In 2009, Gray and his wife Susanna moved back home to raise their family. Following a stint as an engineer with Southern Nuclear, Gray soon realized the local residential construction market was void of high quality craftsmanship, fresh design and technology. It was with his knowledge of project management and a desire to build with integrity that Longleaf Builders was founded. At Longleaf Builders, we sweat the small stuff because the details are what makes the difference.
