President & CEO

My focus is to build and maintain excellent relationships between the manufacturers we represent and the customers we serve. I achieve this by being in the field daily to understand what our customer’s needs and expectations are so we can provide solid insight to our manufacturers. After 35 years in the building materials arena, I keep an open mind in the present and look to the future to help make the adjustments needed to allow our company to be successful.

My wife Joanne and I have 5 adult children. We enjoy outdoor activities, traveling and spending time with family and friends.

I have spent most of my life in sales of various kinds. I owned and operated a coffee shop for 10 years, spent a few years in food sales and am now a realtor.  Honesty and integrity are extremely important to me, along with good communication. I enjoy working with people and helping them meet their needs.

My husband Shawn and I have five adult children that we love to spend time with. I enjoy traveling, hiking, biking and finding new experiences. My happy place is the beach. I also volunteer with a local social justice organization with my daughter Rys. The two most important things in my life are my relationship with God and my family.

General Manager

I knew I found the career for me on the first day of my high school accounting class. I went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from Kent State University. My roles in both public and private industry accounting over the past twelve years, have taught me a variety of skills that I incorporate in my role today.
My goal is to provide valuable financial information to assist in executing successful operational strategies.
I currently reside in Florida, with my Yorkie Italia. When I’m not spending time with friends and family, I enjoy kayaking, biking and working with a local social justice organization.

Director of Sales

My passion for building material and hardware sales comes from a place of being around it most of my life. I vividly remember making sales calls with my dad from an early age. I have spent 20+ years in sales after an early career in education. My sales career began with hardware, lawn and garden, farm and greenhouse distribution. After leaving distribution, I have spent the last 7+ years representing various manufacturers and still enjoy building relationships with old, current and new customers.  
In my down time, I love to spend time with my daughter and 2 sons. I also enjoy music, the great outdoors and playing as much golf as possible.

It’s exciting to live in America and to see the robust economy that allows opportunities the entrepreneurial spirit to thrive.

My background and experience started in Ohio at my father’s business
in the logging and lumber industry. A recent move to Florida has allowed for new adventures.

I enjoy being part of a team, providing supportive efforts to ensure things run smoothly.

Amy Snyder

Administrative Assistant

The last ten years of work have given me opportunities to develop skills and a love for business administration with a focus on bookkeeping and finance.

I’ve enjoyed problem solving, developing new administrative processes, and applying these to a growing and ever evolving finance and administrative department. I’m excited to be with Aurora Sales and support the administrative team in this way.

I live in Ohio with my husband, three year old son and we are expecting another baby boy at the end of this year. When I’m not working, I enjoy playing outside with my son, family adventures to local eateries and lazy weekends at home together.

We also use a team of independent sales contractors to service our customers.
