  • Orlando, FL (1888PressRelease) May 03, 2019 - Julie Holmes, president and principal of leading specialty construction firm JK2 Scenic, was recently recognized among the top women business owners in Orlando.

    Holmes was honored by the Orlando Business Journal as one of the 2019 Women Who Mean Business. The award highlights prominent women leaders throughout the Central Florida community in three categories: Women to Watch, Women Business Owners and Business Executives of the Year. Holmes received the recognition at a luncheon on Friday, April 26, at the Hilton Orlando.

    “Running a woman-owned business was one of my goals when I came back to the family business in 2013,” Holmes said. “It’s incredibly gratifying to not only see that dream come true, but to be recognized among a field of inspiring peers.”

    Under Holmes’ leadership, JK2 Scenic has experienced tremendous growth as a company. Previously a division of JK2 Construction, JK2 Scenic spun off into its own, separate company in 2017 to take advantage of new growth opportunities. Since joining the Scenic team, Holmes has seen revenues grow over 1,000 percent and plans to continue this trend by diversifying services as well as growing through responsible and strategic initiatives.

    Holmes’ recognition by the Orlando Business Journal is yet another accolade to add to JK2 Scenic’s long list. The company has won several Eagle Awards from the Associated Builders and Contractors and has been named to both Orlando Business Journal’s Fast 50 and the University of Florida’s Gator100 lists. Last year, JK2 Scenic was certified as a woman-owned business by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council.
