Nauman was born in New Orleans and raised in Mandeville, Louisiana. In 2007, with a clear vision of a future in construction, he moved back to New Orleans after receiving a BS in Construction Management and Minor in Business from Louisiana State University. He accepted a project management position with the New Orleans-based commercial construction firm he had interned with while attending LSU. There he spent the next 9 years managing over $260 million in projects from both the public and private sectors. These projects ranged from historic, healthcare, hospitality, education, institutional, industrial, and tenant improvement renovations and ground-up construction.
In 2015 Nauman partnered up with Ryan and Tom to form NFT Group, LLC. Nauman is responsible for all aspects of construction for multiple projects including owner and architect relations, scheduling, field operations, quality control, and all other project operations responsibilities. Nauman’s passion for building and attention to detail shows in every NFT project.
