Chief Executive Officer
Lee Upshaw attended Middle Ga. College and the University of Kentucky. Following in his father’s footsteps, Lee signed with the Atlanta Braves Organization where he pitched from 1987- 1995 until a shoulder surgery ended his career but brought him to his new passion, construction and serving others.
After Lee retired from baseball, he worked with two multi-family renovation companies in the Southeast. Both specialized in large capital projects and were completed on time and under budget. During this time, Lee saw in the industry was falling short. Lee made the courageous leap to break away and started his own company . His aim: to better the customer service and quality of construction for management companies around the Southeast.
Since Lee has found a recipe for success, he has decided to start and grow a new company here in Florida – AmEuro Construction, LLC. We see that communication and honesty are two qualities that this industry lacks. From those holding assistant positions to the founder himself, here at AmEuro, these characteristics are highly emphasized. “This is the foundation of our company.”
Lee is married to Sheila, his wife of 18 years, has one daughter, Savannah and two Shih-tzus, Bentley and Lilly Kate. When he is not in the office he spends time with his family, attends church at First Sarasota and plays golf. “I am thankful God has instilled into my heart a passion to serve others, it is what drives me everyday.”
