Previous work experience
I earned my Bachelor of Science of Business Administration with a minor in Management in the spring of 2006 at Carroll College. Also, during my 4 years in college I played football as a strong safety for the Carroll College Pioneers. Upon graduation, I had several job offers to work in Corporate America for various companies but decided those were not good fits for what I wanted in my future career. Instead, I took interest in a smaller building company in the Milwaukee Area that recruited me while I was finishing up my last semester in college. I arrived at my first day expecting the project consulting job they had promised, only to find out that they couldn’t support me in this position quite yet. I was, however, offered a position on one of the company’s production crews to be a full-time roofer. I made the tough decision to swallow my pride in the aspirations I had for beginning my career, and took the job as a full time roofer. I worked on the crew for two years doing both residential and commercial roofing. It was the best thing that could have happened to me because I had hands on training of what I would soon be making a 15-year (and counting!) career of. To this day, I believe if I hadn’t worked on the crew, I wouldn’t be where I am with my roofing knowledge and respect for the industry.
As I moved up in the industry, I worked as a project consultant for a smaller building company focusing on specific improvements around building envelope on homes and commercial properties. I received extensive management and outside consulting training through Certified Contractors Network out of Pennsylvania. Additionally, I later worked as an outside sales representative for a very successful, larger commercial-based roofing company in the Milwaukee area. I took over their commercial account management and became the lead outside sales representative to maintain and help grow the roofing division of the company.
My dream has always been to create and grow my own company. After a decade of working in the industry, starting with production and working up to being an owner, I am now the proud owner of Wisconsin Roofing, LLC, and couldn’t be happier.
Family means everything to me. I love spending time with my family whenever possible. I am happily married and a proud father to my son and daughter. I enjoy being outdoors anytime I can, especially hunting, fishing or vacationing in the Caribbean. I also enjoy going to music concerts and being immersed in live music. I am very fortunate for the opportunities that I have experienced, and I thank everyone who supported me along the way, especially my incredible wife, Heather.
