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 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.

Inside Sales Representative

My husband Elvis and I have one daughter, Cayley. We enjoy the outdoors and spending time with family and friends.
I grew up working with my dad in our family’s garage door business. Even before I finished school, I was learning to install doors. I spent the next 40+ years learning every aspect of the industry from installation, service, repair, and sales. All these skills helped me when I purchased the company and continued growing what my dad started. I later sold the business, but continued working there in sales, which is the role I love the most. In my career, I have built and maintained solid relationships with customers and suppliers alike, some beginning 40 years ago.
My wife Carol and I have two adult children, one dog, two grandchildren and one grand-puppy. When I’m not spending time with them, I enjoy hunting, fishing and playing softball.
My love for sales and people started when I began waiting tables to support myself through college. It of course grew from there. I have two years as an outside sales representation experience in the building industry covering the northeast states before starting my almost 5-year career as a director of sales for a heating manufacturer in Tennessee. Throughout my career I have earned the trust of several regional and national accounts and maintained strong customer relationships that generate repeat business.
For the past almost 5 years I have lived and currently reside in Tennessee after relocating from Northeast Pennsylvania. I have such a fondness of Tennessee and its people who welcomed me with open arms. In my free time I enjoy, cooking, kayaking, my mini dachshund Maisel, and visiting my young nephew.
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.
My career in sales began 25 years ago after graduating from college. After many years of competitive sports, I discovered that sales offered me the same rewards and satisfaction as athletics once did.
Most importantly my sales career has allowed me the opportunity to meet many great people over the years. I have held various positions in the building materials industry for the past 15 years.
My wife and I have just recently relocated to Tennessee and love the people and culture. In my free time I enjoy, cooking, taking our dogs to the park and spending time exploring new adventures.
