Holt Brothers Construction Leadership

Terrence Holt


Terrence's six years in the NFL and his college career with NC State football have prepared him well for managing Holt Brothers Construction. In his role, he is focused on creating and communicating the mission and vision of the company, executing the game plan, and building a great team.

Under his leadership, the company has tripled in size, and revenue has consistently grown. The firm's project portfolio now includes the $65 million Critical Public Safety Center in Raleigh and the $35 million Reynolds Coliseum Renovation and Walk of Fame project at NC State.

Terrence serves as vice chair of the Holt Brothers Foundation, on the Board of Directors at the Durham Chamber of Commerce, and on the Durham Sports Commission.

Beach or mountains?

Hands down the beach! There is nothing I love more than sitting at the water’s edge, feet buried in the sand, feeling the waves wash by and long walks on the beach. Just hearing those pounding waves, breathing in the salty air, relaxation…ah, pure bliss!
