John L. Lomax
President and Founder of Lomax Construction and Lomax Properties

John L. Lomax, President and Founder of Lomax Construction and Lomax Properties, is a native of Greensboro, North Carolina and graduate of East Carolina University. After spending twelve years as the Vice President of H.M. Kern Corporation, John ventured on his own and established Lomax Construction, Inc in July of 1996.

In 2000, John became very active with the revitalization of downtown Greensboro and began acquiring a portfolio of historic buildings with the first of the acquisitions being the historic Kress building on Elm Street. This acquisition was not only a turning point for downtown, but sparked a desire in John to acquire, renovate and develop real estate for himself as well as others. As these interests grew, so did the need for professional management and a well rounded team to continue the pursuit of acquisitions and development and so emerged the creation of Lomax Properties, LLC.

John is also well known for his community involvement as well as his philanthropic interests having served on more than fourteen different boards over the years. He has also won many awards that include the Triad Business Ethics Award, Best Places to Work, and SBA Small Business Person of the Year, just to name a few.

One of his personal passions is supporting learning opportunities for students through the creation of foundations and apprenticeships instilling knowledge and work ethic in our youth. John Lives in Downtown Greensboro with his twin sons Alex and Eric.
