Ladi Goldwire is CEO and Owner of BrinMar Construction & Development Group Ltd, a design-build general contracting firm specializing in condo renovations and single-family residential home flips and rehabs. She is passionate about her business because it provides a means for women to be expressive and relevant in a space typically set aside for, and dominated by, men.
Ladi is also a big advocate for mental health and the hemp industry. She’s a member of the Board of Directors of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
Breaking into any industry is never easy—and this is particularly true if you’re a female trying to dominate a male-dominated one like construction and development. It can be so intense and so challenging that it can push you to your breaking point. But with grit and determination, it’s definitely possible to not just penetrate the industry but to make a mark in it as well. And this was the case for Ladi Goldwire.
Ladi took an early interest in construction because of her father. Her interest then morphed into a passion that later inspired the founding of her company, BrinMar Construction & Development Group Ltd. But early industry dominance saw Ladi as a target—she even landed in jail because of some trumped-up charges as she was doing her job as a Certified Building Official in Florida. The charges were eventually dropped and she became an even stronger force to be reckoned with in the industry.
On this Top Black Leaders Series episode of Inspired Insider, Dr. Jeremy Weisz talks with Ladi Goldwire, the CEO and Owner of BrinMar Construction & Development Group Ltd, about how she pursues them with passion in order to make a mark in whatever she undertakes. Tune in as she discusses why she’s passionate about mental health, how she dominated a male-populated industry in Florida despite the challenges, and what she has been up to in the hemp and tea industry.
