Tyrone Johnson is the founder of Milwaukee-based Brothers Infrastructure Group Construction, known as B.I.G. The company has created a model for an 11-week construction education and financial literacy program for underserved and unrepresented individuals.
The participants were provided on-site skill construction training by certified instructors. Along with the construction training, participants were provided financial literacy training on how money works, the importance of saving and opening a savings account. B.I.G. was the recipient of the 2022 Governor’s Financial Literacy Award.
Johnson has more than 25 years of experience as a project manager, construction manager, program manager and engineer on public and private construction projects, including at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee and Milwaukee Christian Center.
“His commitment to the community shows in the way he gives back to help lift others up,” said Sherri Jordan, founder and principal consultant of Envision the Ladder.
