Title: Operations Manager
I open up every morning and get delivery drivers scheduled and on the road. I maintain our truck fleet and fix all the small things that break around here (Mr. Fixit as our founder Ron used to say!) I also answer customer phone calls and work the counter if needed.

What do you do when you're not at work?

I like working in my yard, helping people, and reading the Bible. Like sleeping and adding new things to my house.

How have things changed since we moved to the new building?

The difference is like night and day! There's so much more room: places to park and get your truck loaded easily, a new, modern showroom. All that and no one has to wait for the bathroom anymore LOL!

Is there something you think not many customers know that we do/carry/provide at BT?

They may not know that we carry conduit now.

Title: General Manager
I worked with Ron, Build-Tek's founder, from 1993 until his death in 2006 and learned everything he knew about what makes Build-Tek great. I'm especially proud to have moved Build-Tek to our incredible new facility that Ron would just love.

I spend most of my time with my 6 year old, Serena, going to the movies, parks and library. There are a lot of stickers in my life!

We can be 100 times more efficient and productive because of the expanded space. With our new yard and office space we're unlimited in what we can do!
