Campbell West Caldwell, WESCON Founder and President, is a sixth generation Pensacolian who was raised in a North Hill family with history and tradition an integral part of daily life. As a youth, West was intrigued by the surrounding historical architecture and the widespread new construction occurring during Pensacola’s dramatic growth of the 1960s. It was during this time that West decided his future was in building construction.
Before leaving to attend the University of Florida, West was a founding Board Member of the North Hill Preservation Association. During summer breaks, West worked for the Historic Pensacola Preservation Board (UWF Historic Trust) participating in architectural digs in the Seville district, drafting as-built drawings for historic Seville structures, and performing historic building surveys in Pensacola’s North Hill district.
After receiving his degree, West was a project manager and estimator for two leading construction firms in the area. West founded WESCON Corporation in 1987 with a continuing passion for the construction industry.
West enjoys spending his free time with his wife Ethlyn and their four grandchildren and also with his fellow volunteers on community boards and service organizations.
