We believe quality, high-level relationships expand our circle of influence.

Since 2009, EXECONNECT Hampton Roads has assimilated strong business relationships that improve the economic impact of the Hampton Roads region and beyond.

EXECONNECT is the by-invitation-only executive group in Hampton Roads that provides business owners and other accomplished C-Suite leaders the opportunity to expand their sphere of influence personally and professionally through quality networking events in a distinguished atmosphere.

The purpose of EXECONNECT is to develop relationships with the right local people creating a business culture of purpose and intention. Our signature event is the Executive Luncheon. This luncheon is by-invitation-only and has limited seating. The Executive Luncheon is held on the 2nd Wednesday of every month (except August and December).

Jim Schneider, Owner – Schneider Custom Builders

Jim Schneider

Jim Schneider

Jim was introduced to the construction industry when his dad, a contractor himself, started bringing him to work as a 9‐year‐old boy. In 1984, he started his company that over the years has developed into a Custom Design Build firm.

Schneider Custom Builders designs new custom homes and remodels but takes more pride in building relationships. “We’ve grown to realize the critical nature of earning the trust of our clients is only overshadowed by maintaining it. It’s easy to build/remodel a house for a client, it’s our goal to build/remodel a home for a friend.”

Jim, a Norfolk resident, has been married to his wife Sue for 29 years and has two children, Mackenzie and Joey. He serves on the board or the Ghent Business Association, Advisory Board of the CHKD Child Abuse Prevention Program and is a past Chair of the Craftsmen, club #11 of the National Association of Home Builder’s 20 Club program.
