    SALISBURY, MD, April 18, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Christopher David Eccleston has been selected for inclusion in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Mr. Eccleston is the founder and president of Delmarva Veteran Builders (DVB), an award winning commercial general contracting business he established in 2013. Under his leadership, the company has become known for its expertise in many different sectors of the construction industry some of which include municipal, institutional-type projects and hotels. Mr. Eccleston's dedication to excellence in construction management is evident through his achievements and the high standards he sets for his organization. Based in Salisbury, Maryland, DVB has grown from a one-person operation to a thriving commercial company that prides itself on maintaining a family-like atmosphere where everyone strives to provide unparalleled service and expertise.

Before establishing DVB, Mr. Eccleston was a project manager at Gillis Gilkerson from 2007 to 2012. His tenure there was marked by significant professional growth and development, leading him to ascend from an entry-level position to one of considerable responsibility.

Outside of his professional contributions to construction, Mr. Eccleston is an accomplished writer. In 2023, he co­ authored "Grit Leads to Greatness" with Jenny Schroen, the creative developer at DVB. Taking the immense workforce shortage head-on, they penned a dystopian story where two children save a crumbling world that has forgotten the construction trades. The self-published book has sold nearly 10,000 copies with tens of thousands of kids hearing about the Power of GRIT and the magic of building. The authors are leading a nationwide movement to inspire the next generation into the construction industry.
