Wayne is an accomplished executive and visionary with over 30 years of experience in the commercial modular construction industry and is a nationally recognized thought-leader in delivering turnkey wood and steel frame modular building solutions throughout North America.

Shortly after forming DRG, Wayne formed a strategic alliance between Diversity Resources Group and Harrison, Walker and Harper to establish DRG Industrial.

Prior to DRG, Wayne co-founded The Warrior Group, one of the largest modular construction companies in US and a leader in offsite and modular projects for the federal, commercial, hospitality, medical and residential sectors. During Wayne’s tenure, the company grew to over $130M per year, ranking 32nd in the Black Enterprise Top 100 largest African American firms in the US.
