Sam Hunter, PE



T. A. Loving Company’s strong desire to develop and build relationships through a team approach to construction is a direct reflection of the values and philosophy of Chairman Sam Hunter.

“We do not think there has to be a winner and a loser on construction projects; the only truly successful projects are ones that are a win-win for all interested parties.”

Sam is also an ardent advocate for the construction industry, having served as President of both Carolinas AGC and AGC of America. Additionally, Sam has served in dozens of other leadership positions for those organizations. He has served in leadership positions for the National Center for Construction Education and Research and the East Carolina School of Construction Management. Sam was presented with the Carolina’s AGC Hall of Fame Award in 2017.
