Allison Murrell is the CIO of Quality Enterprises USA Inc. (QE), her family’s large, heavy civil construction company. And she also serves as president of QE’s sister company, Earth View LLC (EV), which provides horizontal directional drilling (HDD).
“I have a leadership position with my two younger siblings at QE and we are all driven to expand and take the company to the next level,” she says. “At EV, I oversaw a recent expansion to HDD, which helped us become one of the fastest-growing private companies in Florida.”
In addition to her busy work schedule, community involvement is also an important part of Murrell’s life. She volunteers at Youth Haven, where she chaired Party with a Purpose, and she teaches weekly Pure Barre classes.
