Experience

My job involves working with ambitious, innovative, and hard-charging business owners, and I really enjoy what I do. Growing up in my family’s construction business, now 125 years old, I gained a unique insight into entrepreneurs — how they think and how they operate. My father grew the business with a tireless work ethic and passed the baton to my brothers, so I’m familiar with what it takes to build and sustain a multi-generational family business, as well as how critical it is for the right people to be in the right roles.
