Preston McAfee

Chief Executive Officer


The axiom, successful leaders grow successful business, is definitely true in the case of Preston McAfee. Since assuming leadership responsibility of the firm in 2000, Preston has continued to build on the past successes of founding partners Pat O’Brien and Steve Rogers. His unwavering dedication has enabled us to attain $1.5 billion in revenues during the past five years and, at the same time, has secured our reputation throughout the region as a company highly respected for its culture of integrity and commitment to excellence.

Born and reared in Dallas, Preston grew up in construction — his first job in high school was working for Rogers-O’Brien, sharpening pencils. After earning a Bachelor of Business Administration from East Texas University in 1974, and a Master of Science in Building Construction from Texas A&M University in 1977, he held various construction-related positions. Most memorably, he worked for the Carpenter family business, Southland Real Estate Resources, serving as the owner’s representative on Quail Run apartments, the first project in Las Colinas. His varied and successful career in real estate development and construction has produced longstanding and valued relationships with owners and architects, and prepared him to lead Rogers-O’Brien into the 21st century.

Preston believes in giving back to the profession. He has served as past Chair for the Dallas chapter of TEXO, the professional organization serving the construction community in North Texas. He is an inspiration and role model to our own employees as well as the greater construction community. Some of his greatest professional accomplishments include Rogers-O’Brien’s recognition by the Dallas Chapter of the American Institute of Architects as Contractor of the Year in 2001 and by the American Subcontractors Association as General Contractor of the Year in 2008. Preston has been married to Barbara for 36 years, has three grown children and is a proud grandpa.
