Annas Development & Building was founded by Jeff L. Annas, in Hickory, North Carolina; in April 2002. Jeff is a native of Hickory, North Carolina; and a magna cum laude graduate of Lenoir Rhyne College. After working as a management person for United Parcel Service (UPS) for more than 20 years, Jeff left UPS and decided to pursue his compelling interest for the construction industry.
