Rachel Johnson


Growing up, I developed a love for construction while participating in Habitat for Humanity builds from Maryland to Alaska. In 2007, I committed to a career in the industry and have run everything from small renovations to new construction projects in the Carolinas, Florida, Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. Since graduating from Boston University, I became a certified general contractor in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Florida. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, outdoor activities, and spending time with my family and miniature dachshund.

Matt Irwin

Director of Business Development

I bring a “client first” philosophy to Forge, developed from prior client and community-focused roles at the Peace Center, Christ Church Episcopal School, and Bon Secours Wellness Arena. I am a graduate of Clemson University and completed my graduate degree at the College of Charleston. Recently, I graduated from Leadership Greenville Class 46. In my free time, I am an avid runner, golfer, and, along with my wife and daughter, love all things Clemson athletics.

“As an Upstate native, I enjoy serving as ‘the connector’ for Forge, forming strong relationships with clients and partners to reshape the Carolinas.”
