Associate Spotlight: Raymond Dobbins, Director of Construction and Accounting Systems
Quarterra Director of Construction and Accounting Systems Raymond Dobbins has worn multiple hats during his tenure at the company, but he is recognizable for his singular taste in neckwear. Raymond is Quarterra’s guy in the bow tie! While you might already know him from his signature attire, you might not be aware that Raymond was among the first graduates of the Lennar Leadership Development Program, or that he once toured a nuclear plant.
Let’s dive in and learn more fun facts about Raymond, his experience at Quarterra, and what keeps him tied into his work and his team.
What is your official title and job description?
My official title is Director of Construction and Accounting Systems, and I have the privilege of working with an amazing team that is responsible for supporting the Accounting and Construction departments. We focus on the execution of application initiatives, application support and working with third-party vendors to ensure the health and functionality of core applications such as Sage 300 CRE, Timberscan, AvidXchange, Sage Estimating and Procore.
What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of the job is when our team can help and/or provide information to eliminate obstacles and make things a little easier for other Quarterra associates.
What's your favorite Quarterra Core Value?
My favorite Quarterra core value is Collaboration. I enjoy it when our team can work with other departments and associates to solve problems and accomplish common tasks.
What are you most looking forward to in Quarterra's future?
I look forward to learning and growing in my knowledge of Quarterra and Quarterra applications as our team works with other departments to roll out new initiatives, new applications, new integrations, and new policies/procedures.
I’m a graduate of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (AGGIE PRIDE!) with a BS degree in architectural engineering. I worked as an assistant project architect, estimator and consultant before joining Quarterra (LMC) as a project manager in 2014. As a project manager, I supported our Construction and Accounting departments, helped implement new applications and assisted with several application initiatives before being promoted to director in 2019. In 2021, I was among the first LMC/Lennar associates to graduate from the Lennar Leadership Development Program.
Where is the coolest place you’ve traveled and why?
The coolest place I’ve traveled was Idaho Falls, Idaho. I enjoyed the weather, being in a different part of the country, and experiencing several of the outdoor activities Idaho had to offer. I also had the opportunity to tour a nuclear plant facility while I was there.
