Roxanna Daniel, Founder and Co-Founder of Taj Development Company, Inc. has spent more than 40 years in construction development.

Starting out as one of the first round of women in The Painters and Decorators Council at Chicago Washburne Trade School she was also an early member of Chicago Women and Trades, and ultimately morphing into a general contractor, Roxanna has utilized her vision to creatively seek out the beauty previously unavailable to the naked eye and manifest the inherent exquisiteness within as a Serial Entreprenuer.

Currently her company works with Real Estate Developers and Investors on creating budgets and scopes of work for property acquisition, renovations, and sale.  Working with contract budgets ranging from $45,000 - $350,000, Taj Development has been a trusted staple in 72 Chicagoland and suburban communities. In the past 2 years Taj Development has expanded its working relationships with 203k consultants, Lenders, and Brokers to ensure optimum property salability. Launching initiatives to improve efficiencies in construction scheduling, supply orders, compliance, and risk management, Roxanna has spearheaded 200% company growth.

Understanding the African proverb, “if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together,” Taj Development has hired and trained hundreds of minorities over the years. Constantly building and fostering relationships with agencies like the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, Cook County Land Bank, Alabama Department of Energy, the Black Star Project, and LEED-certified architects, Taj Development is not only concerned with developing our most precious resource, people, but that love and concern extends to preserving our communities and the planet by reducing our carbon footprint.
