Stava Building Corp. Welcomes New Leadership

SANDY AND JOHN STAVA: John Stava, with his wife Sandy, founded Stava Corporation 30 years ago and will continue his role as the company’s Chief Executive Officer. The photos were taken at the recent 30th anniversary party at Tulsa’s Summit Club.

Stava Building Corporation welcomes two new owners to the established Tulsa company. Curt Hellen and LouAnn Smith will join as president and vice president, respectively. John Stava, CEO and founde, will remain active and involved in the day-to-day activities of the corporation.

Stava, who founded the company in 1988, said, “The company is in great shape. It’s important that Stava Building continues to grow and develop. I feel that it is in great hands with Curt and LouAnn, and is poised to take the next step forward with their leadership.”

Both Hellen and Smith come to Stava Building with extensive construction and professional experience throughout Oklahoma.

Curt Hellen joins the team with 22 years of experience in construction. He received his undergraduate degree in construction management from Oklahoma State University and his Masters of Business Administration from the University of Dallas. “I’m extremely excited for the opportunity to join Stava Building as its president,” Hellen said. “It’s a company that has been a force, yet somewhat of a hidden gem, in the Oklahoma construction industry for a number of years and will only continue to grow. Some of his more notable project involvements have included the Tulsa Zoo Lost Kingdom, Northeastern State Multipurpose Arena, Yale Village at 91st Street and Yale Avenue, Zarrow Pointe, and numerous healthcare, educational and private developments. “

LouAnn Smith has held various positions in her 21-year career in the construction industry. Her degree from Oklahoma State is in marketing, but she was immediately attracted to the construction industry after graduation. Her experience is in operations, as well as marketing and business development. “I am absolutely honored to join such an established and energetic team. The future of Stava is exciting,” she said.
