Ian Anderson


Ian Anderson was born and raised here in Hilton Head Island. He attended high school here locally before deciding to further his athletic and academic career at the University of Kentucky, where he was a member of the Wildcat Football Program. After returning to the lowcountry, he then landed in construction as a regional representative for one of the largest exterior contracting companies in the Southeast. As he continued to gain knowledge and experience, he transitioned into project management role for a custom residential builder. With his success he was named a Director of Construction and shortly after deemed Vice President. From there Ian set off to create what is now Blackwater Construction Group.

“We want to set the new standard of what the home building experience represents. The Blackwater vision represents unmatched quality and lasting relationships.” – Ian Anderson
