Meet the BMarko Team

Chief Executive Officer
Antony Kountouris spent the first 18 years of his life in Athens, Greece. Seeing a much greater opportunity in the States he decided to study abroad.
While obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from UC San Diego, Antony met Boris Jerkunica, the Chairman of BMarko, and teamed up with him to start the company. Boris, being a successful software entrepreneur, saw a construction industry that trailed innovation and technology by a hundred years. He identified the General Contractor model as a risk mitigation approach as opposed to a value creation approach, common in the software industry. The two of them started the journey to bring true value to construction through highly innovative approaches.
His favorite part about working for BMarko Structures is seeing the modes that his coworkers operate in; challenging all industry norms, asking a ton of questions, and bringing loads of passion towards the company mission.
Outside of work, Antony enjoys reading great books, playing not-so-great tennis, and learning new things.
