James “Mac” Barton joins Chi-Mar Construction.

Chi-Mar Construction has welcomed Destin native James “Mac” Barton to the team. A graduate of Fort Walton Beach High School, Barton attended the University of Central Florida where he graduated in May with a degree in finance.

No stranger to the Emerald Coast, Barton spent his summers working his way through college on the Destin harbor. Barton’s education and past work experience helped develop his skills in sales and customer service. 

“We are thrilled to have Mac on board and know he will be a valuable asset to our team,” said Marty Williams, CEO of Chi-Mar Construction. 

As part of the Chi-Mar team, Barton will now handle investor relations and participate in new construction and renovation sales. 

“I am excited and honored to be a part of the Chi-Mar Construction team,” said Barton. “I know I can learn a lot from the team’s knowledge and experience in the construction industry. I look forward to soaking it all in.”
