WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY?
It’s in my blood. My father was in construction, and as the youngest of five boys, I followed all my brothers into the business.
WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED WHILE WORKING AT O‑A‑K?
Right away, I appreciated O‑A‑K's emphasis on valuing our employees and what a great company culture we have!
WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?
I enjoy spending my free time with family, being active or traveling.
I am so fortunate to have this opportunity with such an amazing company, I have never been more aligned with a company’s values. I am eager to leverage my knowledge and relationships, as well as O‑A‑K’s 131 years of expertise and resources, to lead O‑A‑K’s growth into Colorado.”
WHAT MAKES A GREAT LEADER?
There are a lot of traits that make a great leader. A few of the most important for me are honesty, loyalty, passion, vision, and dependability. Ultimately a leader must be a great communicator, who can motivate his or her team, and maintain composure under all circumstances. You can measure how successful a leader is not by his/her success, but by the success of the team.
