Allen Amsler oversees McCrory Construction, a full-service general contractor ranked among the Southeast’s largest and most respected construction services providers. The company is known for its expertise in key market sectors — primarily retail, commercial, healthcare, multi-family and industrial construction. Amsler’s personal passion for client satisfaction is reflected throughout the entire organization. After a century in existence, McCrory maintains an exceptionally high level of repeat business — at more than 90 percent. 

Under Amsler’s leadership, privately held McCrory has experienced unprecedented growth in the last decade. During this time, the company has significantly increased its already impressive list of private and public sector clients. Further, McCrory has expanded its services, market sectors, and geographic presence. Headquartered in Columbia, South Carolina, McCrory now is licensed in 13 states and has full-service regional offices in Greenville, South Carolina, and Raleigh, North Carolina. 

Amsler began his extensive career with McCrory in 1987 following graduation from the University of Florida where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Building Construction. After immersing himself in all aspects of the business through increasingly responsible roles — ranging from Assistant Project Manager, to Project Manager, to Vice President of Operations — he assumed the title of President and CEO in 2003. 

Active in a variety of civic organizations, Amsler serves on the Board of Directors, Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of the Carolinas, and sits on the boards of Special Olympics South Carolina and the Humane Society of South Carolina. In addition, he is a member of the Lexington Board of Advisors for the National Bank of South Carolina (NBSC) and serves as Department of Commerce Committee Representative for the South Carolina Building Codes Council Loss Mitigation Program. Amsler is past Chairman for the National Kidney Foundation in South Carolina and former Chairman of the Board for the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) 

Amsler and his wife live in Lexington, South Carolina. He enjoys boating, flying, and family time with their three adult children. 

I never lose sight of every project’s true focus: meeting our client’s goals.
