CEO

Was there an “ah-ha” moment that led you to the company?

Our journey began with a keen observation of the challenges faced by medium to small-sized businesses in accessing quality materials at fair prices from large retailers. This realization served as the catalyst for our entrepreneurial venture.

What’s your company culture like?

Our company culture thrives on respect for our values, clients, and stakeholders. We continuously strive for improvement in our internal processes and services, demonstrating an unwavering commitment to learning and growth at every turn.

Our strength lies in our unwavering belief in ourselves and our passion for serving clients. We cultivate lasting relationships by offering genuine value to their projects. Additionally, our commitment to same and next-day delivery sets us apart in the market.

Our vision includes expanding our footprint in Florida by opening three additional branches. Beyond state borders, we aim to gain market shares and awareness in different states. Furthermore, we plan to diversify our product line to offer comprehensive solutions to the roofing industry.

We have been building out a team to handle the amount of growth we’ve been seeing. My goals are to alleviate those growing pains while still retaining the quality of service we provide. We have some talented leaders who are moving up in our company, and I’m excited to see them grow into the larger roles that they will have. Growth isn’t a goal for us, it is a result of quality work and client relationships. We never want to be so big that our clients suffer, so we focus on client service first and foremost, and the rest has been the result of that effort.

Do you have a proudest moment?

Our proudest achievement has been the exponential growth witnessed since our inception five years ago. This growth has not only benefited the company but has also fostered the development of our employees, strengthened customer relationships, and allowed us to invest in a fleet of trucks for improved customer service.

What does it mean to be selected as an Honoree?

Being chosen as a GrowFL FLCTW Honoree is a time for reflection on our journey and growth. It is a testament to the collective hard work of the past five years. We feel honored and humbled, appreciating the opportunity to serve as an example for fellow entrepreneurs.

Is there anyone you’d like to thank for getting you to where you are now? 

Our gratitude extends to our dedicated team, loyal clients, and everyone who has supported our growth. Special thanks to put business coach who have assisted us in overcoming obstacles and staying focused on the bigger picture. 

What is your advice for aspiring or fellow business owners?

Embrace the risk, trust your instincts, and stay motivated. Maintain a high level of discipline, believe in your capabilities, and remain focused on your objectives. Equally important is the ability to motivate and inspire others on the journey to success.
