Leah Glade, Chief Project Manager
Leah Glade works as Chief Project Manager for Collums Construction. She is responsible for the management and supervision of major renovations. This includes everything necessary to make sure a job runs smoothly and projects are completed on time.
On any given day Leah may be found on site giving directives to employees and sub-contractors. Or she may be in the office executing change orders, placing orders for supplies, doing takeoffs for material or organizing billing for her jobs. Another crucial part of the work she does is keeping the client informed of progress on the jobs and ensuring that all of their wishes and requests for their renovation are being met whenever possible. As a project manager she is also the liaison for the architect on site.
Leah Glade began working for Collums Construction at the age of 15 when she was still Leah Collums. She and her brother learned all about construction while working for their father Hal as a summer job. Leah spent a few years working in high end residential renovations in Manhattan for Uberto Ltd. Now she is back in New Orleans and combines the technical skill she gained from her in-field experience with the management skills she gained from the fast paced world of New York to manage major renovations for Collums Construction.
“I am so happy to be able to live in New Orleans and work at a job I love. I really think that we are making a difference in New Orleans and doing work that will be part of the city for a long time to come. And it is made even better by the fact that I get to do this work together with my Dad. Helping to run this company has been a goal of mine for a long time and I am enjoying every minute of it.” – Leah Glade
