JAXI Managing Member Eduardo Caballero announced that Scott Wells has been named project manager for the development firm’s Southwest Florida Division.
With more than 20 years of experience in commercial construction, managing various projects throughout Florida, Wells comes to JAXI with extensive knowledge and experience in working with architects, engineers, developers, subcontractors, inspectors, and city and county officials throughout all stages of development.
In his new role, he will lead all JAXI projects on the west coast of Florida from development through construction completion, working to ensure each project is on schedule and within budget. He will also work to further JAXI’s network and relationships with local subcontractors and vendors.
“Scott’s impressive background, industry knowledge and experience in the local market made him an ideal choice to head our Southwest Florida team as project manager,” says Caballero.
Based in Miami, JAXI has become active on Florida’s Gulf Coast with several new residential real estate developments. JAXI’s portfolio of upcoming developments in the area include: ALLURE, a 32-story luxury condominium with 292 residences to rise on the riverfront in the Historic Fort Myers River District; ONE, a 16-story boutique condominium with 26 exclusive waterfront residences to be built next door to ALLURE; and Majestic Palms, an 80-unit condominium to be developed in the Royal Pointe neighborhood in South Fort Myers.
JAXI’s managing members are Abel Ramirez and Eduardo Caballero. Ramirez, president of JAXI Builders Inc., founded that company in 1986, and in 2001 Caballero joined as vice president. A South Florida Business Journal report lists JAXI Builders among the top 25 homebuilders in the six-county Southeast Florida market based on housing statistics for the 12-month period that ended in June 2015.
