Darren ListerCEO and President

EGR Construction Inc. CEO & President Darren Lister founded the Oklahoma City-based national architectural millwork and commercial casework company in 2000. With his roots in residential remodeling, Darren landed a job managing a large solid-surface fabrication plant in Kansas City. He relocated with his family to Oklahoma City in 1997, where he became self-employed and returned to residential remodeling. That’s when Darren saw the need in the market for cabinet shops capable of doing large-scale work. Since starting EGR , his vision for the company remains intact today: To value people, to perform with excellence, and to add value to the community.

Under Darren’s leadership, EGR has seen 15% growth year after year. He is a current member of the Architectural Woodwork Institute (AWI) and has served as an advisor at OSU-OKC.

Eddie MartzBusiness Development

Eddie’s journey to business development is a vast one. He started working at EGR as a draftsman in 2002, and has held just about every job you can at EGR. He worked in the shop running a CNC, later as an assembler, installer, a driver, then an estimator, and ultimately became a project manager. Eddie spent five years in his role as a project manager, including management of EGR’s largest project to date for a leading U.S. technology company. From there, Eddie transitioned to business development where he is charged with managing all existing and new client relationships. He also oversees the estimating department and project managers. You can call Eddie “The Cooler” because he always knows how to cool things down – when like every business – things can get heated.
