President, Industrial & Structural Services
Baldwin & Shell Construction Co.
Nick Copas holds the distinction of being the youngest of five team presidents at Little Rock’s Baldwin & Shell Construction Co.
His promotion last December reflected his professional achievements and success in building the company’s Industrial & Structural Services Division. Copas co-founded the division in 2014 with his father, Scott, president and CEO of Baldwin & Shell.
“I always liked to build things,” said Nick Copas, who grew up in Cabot. “I thought it was a pure, simplistic way to make a living.”
After working as a laborer and carpenter for the company as a teenager, he joined Baldwin & Shell full time in 2003 as an ironworker while attending the University of Arkansas at Little Rock at night.
After three years, he put college aside and advanced to foreman, project coordinator, project manager and vice president.
Copas, a graduate of Leadership Greater Little Rock XXIX, has served on the Easter Seals Arkansas Guardians board and Centers for Youth & Families Foundation board of trustees.
His past volunteer work includes fundraising events to benefit the American Heart Association of Central Arkansas, Arkansas Symphony Orchestra and Children’s Advocacy Centers of Arkansas.
