Josh Funderburke | Lobbyist
Josh first became involved in construction in high school when he traveled to Louisiana to work on construction sites during the summer. In college, Josh stayed involved in the construction industry by engaging in rehabilitative efforts along the coastline of Mississippi, volunteering with the Fuller Center for Housing, and working as a field energy auditor.
After graduating from Mercer University, Josh studied the art of construction from the moment the ground is broken until the certificate of occupancy is issued. Josh worked for a national general contracting company as an assistant superintendent specializing in student housing and large-scale multi-family residential projects. In his role, Josh managed relationships between the owners, subcontractors, and local city or county inspectors to ensure each project was performed efficiently and cost-effectively. Through these many interactions, Josh gained a unique perspective into the issues that affect the construction industry along with strategic approaches to project management.
Josh is currently in law school at Florida State University. He has competed in numerous, national trial competitions where he won several awards for his advocacy, including being designated as the Best Advocate twice. Additionally, Josh was the Executive Online Publications Editor of the FSU Law Review, a research assistant, and a Teen Court volunteer. Josh has continued to excel academically and is set to graduate magna cum laude in May 2020.
