Steve Newman, his wife and partner Kelli, and Bo Spring share over 40 years of construction experience. With a seasoned team of vetted subcontractors, Big Fish is able to offer their clients the highest quality of craftsmanship.

FamilySteve Newman was raised just north of Florida’s panhandle in Cairo, Georgia. Yet the University of Georgia graduate is nearly a native to the forgotten coast, having lived in Port St. Joe since 1989. Steve and his wife Kelli have three daughters; Hayden, Farren, and Elli.

Moving to Port Saint Joe in late 2004, the Georgia Tech graduate joined Big Fish, allowing the company to expand to become one of the area’s largest and most recognized builders.  Bo and his wife Lauren have one daughter (Farrah) and one son (Finley).
