The Christman Company has promoted Marty Gibbs to senior vice president and general manager of the construction management and real estate development firm’s regional office in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Gibbs, who has served in construction management in Knoxville since 1998, started with Rentenbach Constructors Inc., and provided leadership in 2013 when the company merged with Christman. He served as vice president and general manager for the Knoxville operations before his recent promotion.

Steve Roznowski, Christman president and CEO, said Gibbs’ ability to “lead among leaders makes him an asset to any collaboration.”
During Gibbs’ tenure, Christman has been recognized by the Knoxville Chamber with a Pinnacle Business Award for its impact on regional economic prosperity. Projects underway in the region include the renovation of the University of Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium and renovation of the TVA East Tower for use by UT and Knox County Schools.
