Culminating in creating and leading a team of over 100 people that generated $170 million in revenue and $17 million in pretax income in one year. I have consistently been a top leader amongst my peer group in overall performance and results. I have 20 years experience leading homebuilding teams that have delivered over 6000 new homes in over 60 communities that I developed. In addition I have over 10 years experience in the Building Material Industry owning my own manufacturing and installation business as well as operating the west region for a national building material manufacturer and installation leader. Having been both a homebuilder and a subcontractor I have a perfect balance of combining the synergies of both sides to create effective partnerships.
