JE Dunn Announces New Midwest Region President

With a resume boasting over 20 years of experience at JE Dunn, Cox is taking the helm of the Midwest region during a milestone year for the company.

JE Dunn Construction has named Adam Cox as its Midwest Region President. The region completes over $2 billion in annual revenue through offices in Kansas City and Springfield, Missouri; Wichita, Kansas; Des Moines, Iowa; Omaha, Nebraska; Minneapolis; and Williston and Dickinson, North Dakota. In addition to the regional offices, the Midwest Region leads projects throughout the country for Sports, Justice, and Federal Government clients. 

Cox succeeds Paul Neidlein, who served in the role for six years and has been named President of JE Dunn’s new Advanced Facilities Group, leading projects in the rapid growth of industrial and manufacturing; mission-critical; and advanced industries markets across the country.  

A graduate of Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, Cox has more than 22 years of experience in the construction industry. His entire career has been with JE Dunn, starting as a Project Engineer. He has held numerous roles during his tenure, ranging from Project Manager to Vice President, and, most recently, the Director of Construction Operations for the Kansas City office. 

Cox has worked on a variety of project types and has excelled at managing large, complex projects in both preconstruction and construction. A few of his notable projects include the Loews Kansas City and Arlington Convention Center hotels, JE Dunn’s 1st semiconductor manufacturing work in Oregon, the T-Mobile Headquarters Campus, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Richard Bolling Federal Building, and the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department headquarters. 

His leadership and community experience also extend outside of JE Dunn. Cox is a LEED Accredited Professional, he served as a board member and secretary of the Kansas City Architectural Foundation, and he is an alumnus of the Centurions Leadership Program of The Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce. Cox also volunteers with organizations such as United Way, Harvesters, and the HIKE Reading Lab.  

“It is such an honor to oversee this region and the incredible teams who work here,” said Adam Cox, Midwest Region President. “Paul has done an excellent job leading the region over the past six years, so I have big shoes to fill, and I’m excited to take it on—particularly as we celebrate 100 years since JE Dunn’s founding. The region is in great shape with strong leaders across our offices and verticals. We have a bright future ahead of us.”
