Brian Keith, LEED AP

Operations Manager

To be great at something requires raw talent, but also practice, practice, practice. All great achievers put in the time to prepare – great athletes, great scholars, even great construction professionals. Brian Keith has been practicing the art and science of construction since he was building houses part-time as a 15-year-old high school student taking advantage of every shop class available.

Brian now applies more than three decades of experience leading the Resource Group, a sector within the Wilhelm Family that manages up to 100 projects at any given time. He works across several industries for projects ranging from several hundred dollars to multiple millions, pairing with developers and designers to be a good steward of each client’s vision.

Memorable opportunities include projects for museums, including Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, Newfields, James Whitcomb Riley Museum, Indiana State Museum, and the nationally-renowned Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. One of Brian’s most notable projects was for Fairbanks Hope Academy, which was a ground up project focused on bringing help to families in need. He’s been thankful for a robust career, and likes to give back through work in his community for projects for Good News Ministries, Rebuilding Together, Habitat for Humanity, and Military Veteran projects .

Having always loved building things, Brian never stops cultivating his craft. He’s shored up his formal education in Construction Technology from Vincennes University with LEED Certification, and mentoring from leaders and colleagues at Wilhelm. He truly enjoys consulting with clients, and never stops doing what needs to be done.

In Brian's Words

“You have to practice day in and day out, every single day, what you should do on a project. That way when problems come up, you’ll know exactly what you should be doing and can take on your resolutions as an expert.”
