Justin Newman, Partner and Senior Vice President of Haydon’s Building Division, brings over 23 years of experience, expertise, and client relationships to his role. Prior to joining Haydon, he held various executive leadership positions and managed a diverse array of projects at other firms. Justin is actively involved in industry groups, such as a local asphalt preservation company where he serves on the board, and takes great pride in his past work on the Industry Advisory Board of Northern Arizona University’s Construction Management program, where he recently served as chair for three years. As a graduate of NAU with a degree in Construction Management, he has also served on the school’s Dean’s Advisory Board for the College of Engineering, Informatics, and Applied Science. A great supporter of NAU’s athletic program, Justin was a varsity letterman on the NAU football team. He and his wife Kris are donors to NAU athletics and have recently had the honor of seeing the NAU Hall of Fame renamed the Newman Family Hall of Fame.

At Haydon, Justin is responsible for the overall execution of operational initiatives within the Building Division. This includes developing market strategies and expanding key segments in a dynamic and evolving market. Outside of work, Justin enjoys spending time with his large family, which includes six children aged 12 to 27, two grandchildren, two sons-in-law, and one daughter-in-law. They enjoy gathering at Justin’s home, going on family trips, and cheering on local sports teams.

Justin’s experience with his large family influences his approach to work relationships. He focuses on understanding each person as an individual with unique attitudes and motivations. For Justin, building relationships with Haydon employees and clients is about creating genuine personal connections. He explains, “Having a genuine desire to connect with people on a personal level can spark interest and help them know you genuinely care—internally or externally—and that transcends everything we’re trying to do here.”
