“Winning is not a sometime thing… it’s an all the time thing. You don’t win once in a while… You don’t do the right thing once in a while… you do them all the time. Winning is a habit.” Vince Lombardi
This quote reminds Dru Bryant to stay committed to continuous improvement in an ever changing industry. As a second generation of construction worker in his family, he has over a decade of industry experience in forming those winning habits.
He grew up in Wichita, KS attending Goddard High School where he played basketball and graduated with honors. In the summers he worked for his father as a laborer on multiple construction sites. This summer work sparked an interest that guided him to Kansas State University where he graduated with a degree in Construction Science and Management. After graduation, Dru started working with his father again as an estimator/project manager for 10 years before joining Zernco in 2015.
As a Senior estimator at Zernco, Dru takes on new projects with the excitement of the unique challenges each possess. His career experiences cover multiple project types including restaurants, banks, office buildings, schools, metal buildings, retail centers and hotels all over the country. He has learned to succeed with each new challenge and enjoys finding new ways to top the competition.
Outside of work, Dru loves spending time with his wife Libbie, 3 daughters (Hannah age 2-1/2 and twin daughters, Hadley and Harper, ages 6 months), Chocolate Lab, K.C., and all his extended family. In the summers, you will find him at the lake and every year his family takes a ski trip to Colorado. He enjoys watching all KSU sports, Kansas City Chiefs and Kansas City Royals games and tries to watch or go to as many as possible.
Overall, Dru believes that Zernco is an up-and-coming entity in the construction industry. The talented group of individuals combine to form a new perspective for collaboration of ideas moving forward to build long term relationships both personal and professional.
