San Diego native Derek Krider has an impressive 30-year career in construction that has transcended market conditions and coasts. As Pacific Building Group’s Vice President of Field Operations, the industry expert directly oversees superintendents and day-to-day construction operations; manages subcontractors and trades; and helps to oversee site safety. An integrity-driven leader, Derek rebuilt organizations from the ground-up, including the South Carolina division of what is now the largest general contractor in Georgia. He previously oversaw 2,500 employees and 72 business units for another South Carolina real estate developer, and more recently, worked on an $85 million hotel expansion in Huntington Beach, CA. One of Derek’s very first projects was Sharp Mary Birch Hospital, and now he’s back in San Diego, bringing decades of experience to PBG and its clients.
