AMANDA BAXTER

President

When did you officially join Baxter?  I decided to start working with my Dad in 2009. Growing up, I always assumed this whole field was only for men. But under my father’s wing, I realized how much creativity I could bring to the industry and felt it was an amazing opportunity to grow the design/build division here at Baxter. They needed a woman's touch! 

When working on a project, how do you define success?  Dedication, hard work, and attention to detail. When we make the effort for each individual project to simply be the best it can be, it not only makes that project a success, it generates more business. This is how we've begun really leaving our mark throughout the region. 

What sets Baxter apart?  The amazing range of talent you'll find on our staff. And the combined affinity for our work – from my father on down. Each and every one of us is innovative, intelligent and constantly educating themselves on how to be the best within their specialty, and in our field overall. 

We offer a wide range of services with customizable packages, everything from a complicated, ground-up facility or gut renovation to simply adding a design flare to a private home.

Favorite building in the Hudson Valley?  The Post Office here in Poughkeepsie, because not only is it just straight-up beautiful, with unique architectural detail, but also because my Grandfather helped build it. It's one of the original "Baxter Built's!"
