We’re welcoming the next generation of innovators and thinkers with our summer intern class. Our internship program fosters a hands-on environment for students who are ready to Build Something More and apply academic concepts to real-world work.

Please help us in welcoming the three newest members of the Kent Companies team:

Anthony Smith, Construction Management Intern, Grand Rapids, Mich.

  • Anthony is a construction management student at Ferris State University with an expected graduation date of May 2023.
  • Anthony is ready to step up to the challenge and gain field experience while spending time with management and business leaders.
  • His love of construction stems from a young age when he spent time building extravagant homes out of Legos, building blocks and video games.

Rene Maier, Marketing Intern, Grand Rapids, Mich.

  • Rene is gearing up for her final year at Ferris State University pursuing a major in marketing with a focus in advertising and integrated marketing communications.
  • During her internship, Rene is looking forward to advancing her knowledge of marketing in a corporate setting while immersing herself in the construction industry.
  • She enjoys using her creative skills to complete projects, spending time outdoors and traveling.

Nishanth Billava, Construction Management Intern, Charlotte, N.C.

  • Nishanth is a student at Arizona State University working hard toward a master’s degree in construction management and technology.
  • He is excited to learn how project management and special contractor operations impact the ever-evolving growth of the construction industry.
