Norman I. Newell, CR, CMA, CMR, GA President, CEO Hammer Construction Corp. possesses over 50 years of experience in construction and maintains one of the earliest-issued general contractor licenses in the State of Florida.
A Florida native. With humble beginnings in the industry as a carpenter, Norm became as proficient in construction estimating as he was a tradesman. With a great interest in the insurance repair industry, Norm decided to start his own business and, in the late 1960’s, founded Hammer Construction Corp.
Norm is an avid pilot and has been flying for over 20 years. Giving back to his Florida roots, Norm was active in a Florida Everglades Conservation Committee and is a Board Member of the Wings Over Miami Air Museum helping to preserve and sustain the history and function of military and classic aircraft.
Married 51 years to his wife Marianne, also a Florida Native, Norm has four daughters, one son, three sons-in-law, one daughter-in-law and twelve grandchildren.
