WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY?
I always liked the satisfaction of being a producer and building things from where there was nothing or taking some project from dilapidation to new and useful.
What can you say about our clients over the years?
I very much treasure and appreciate our loyal clients, they are whom we enjoy serving and owe our good fortune.
What can you say about our employees over the years?
Employees are truly our strongest and more important asset, being an employee owned company we all serve ourselves at the highest level.
What else should we know about you?
I greatly enjoy fishing & flying and quite often bring my dog Hank along with me. I am also a commercial pilot/flight instructor, a PADI/Dive Master and am 4G welding certified.
Experience can be a very hard teacher, because of course it gives you the test first and then the lessons. The next time it comes around it’s not such a mystery.
