Louis Skinner III was born and raised in Palm Beach County, Florida and graduated from Morris Brown College with a degree in Business Administration. He founded Skinner Development, Inc. in 1996, with a vision and a dream to create masterpieces. Mr. Skinner began with home restoration projects, and after establishing his mark, transitioned into creating quality new construction single-family homes. Today Skinner Development, Inc. has expanded into commercial construction, providing exceptional quality and superior craftsmanship to numerous companies and organizations such as College Partners, Inc., DeKalb County, and City of Atlanta.

Mr. Skinner’s philosophy of leadership has always been “lead by example”. “I put forth the highest level of attention to quality, detail, and service with an understanding that everyone working on my project is expected to do the same. As the president of the company, I have to ensure my clients happiness and satisfaction from the initial discussion of the project to its completion. Each client feels a sense of comfort in knowing that my team members and I are there each step of the way, providing guidance and expertise. And their repeat business and referrals show that they trust our integrity and ability to never compromise on quality.”
