Mary Forristall has recently been named Chairwoman of the Gulf Coast Builder’s Exchange (GCBX).  In an industry typically associated with men, Forristall is unique because she is female, and also a mother; grandmother; and part-time aerobics instructor at the YMCA. However, her decades of experience running a demolition company have given her all the tools she needs to lead GCBX. Known as the “Queen of Demolition,” Forristall is president of Forristall Enterprises, the company she and her husband Steve started 25 years ago. She is a also fourth generation entrepreneur.
