Nabholz joins Conway Corp Board of Directors

The Conway Corp Board of Directors recently elected Jake Nabholz to serve a seven-year term beginning May 8, 2018.

Nabholz, Executive Vice President of Nabholz Construction, has lived in Conway for a total of 27 years and is active with several organizations including the Arkansas Children’s Hospital Foundation, Philander Smith College Board of Trustees and the Rotary Foundation Board of Directors.

“As a city-owned utility, Conway Corp exists to serve only Conway, so the focus can be on service, innovation, community support, and quality of life rather than profits or other concerns of a publicly traded company.” Nabholz said.

“I’m honored to serve on the board for a company that has such a rich history in my hometown.”

The board elects one director annually to serve a seven-year term. Other board members are Tom Courtway, Lindsay Henderson, Ray Kordsmeier, Greg Murry, Brad Teague and Bob Whitehouse. Nabholz replaces Bo Conner, whose term ends on May 8, 2018.
