CHIEF OPERATIONS OFFICER
"You can expect me to pick up the phone when you call. I'm usually the first person you talk to and the guy that shows up to inspect your home's exterior and create you detailed estimate."
JOINED STRAIGHTLINE IN 2013
I got started in the industry when I was in high school doing concrete on the weekends. Then I started doing carpentry trim-work and masonry. When I wasn’t in school I was working. After I graduated I went to college for business, construction engineering and technology and when I finished there I jumped right back into commercial remodeling
"The work is enjoyable and I’m influencing the overall health of the business"
I HANDLE GENERAL MANAGEMENT
I focus on repair & remodel as well as commercial business projects. I estimate sales, oversee project management and in a lot of cases handle the billing.
I'VE BEEN WORKING HERE
FOR 8 GREAT YEARS
I choose to work at StraightLine because they’re all straight-shooters. There’s no dishonesty and it’s just a real good group of great guys. I joined the sales department as another member of the team was starting to transition out and I had a real opportunity to get into a position where I could be productive in advancing the company as a whole. I could see the changes my efforts were making and I was doing impactful work. They showed me how much they valued me and I liked coming to work everyday. There’s also a lot of freedom. If our work is done and we’re being efficient then there’s more room to breathe, I can take the rest of the day off if I want.
"I get really excited about advancing the business for all of us"
WE DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY HERE
I’ve worked for enough people over the years to see that in most places there’s not a great relationship between management and the people actually doing the work. Those two parties generally make for a frustrating work environment and the work suffers because of low morale and office politics. Here all the guys are taken care of really well. They get paid on time every time. There’s no excuses. Our guys are our most important tool for our whole program. A lot of contractors view their team as replaceable. They say, ‘who cares if they’re not happy. We can always get more so whatever we’ll just find other people.’ The dynamic here is so much different. These are OUR guys.
THE BIG HIGHLIGHT
I think my best moment at work was landing a huge commercial project, which we had never done before - we were strictly residential. But it started us down a path of success working with different commercial clients as well as with homeowners. For me that was one of my biggest moments and it really changed the path of StraightLine after that.
"HERE EVERYBODY CAN COME TO WORK AND HAVE AN ENJOYABLE DAY. THE OFFICE AND THE ON-SITE TEAM"
The focus is always, how can we all be better team players.
Overall that’s the biggest thing for us, honesty and integrity for ourselves, for each other and for our customers. The big picture here is that it’s a true team culture and everybody wins together. It’s not like our guys are struggling to make ends meet while we’re out buying helicopters, we actually care about each other and that goes all the way around. That respect also extends to every customer, which doesn’t always happen with other contractors.
OUTSIDE OF WORK
Outside of work I really like to snowmobile and spend a lot of time with my family. All the things I used to enjoy doing: racing dirt-bikes snowmobiling, wake surfing and all that, I really like watching my kids do all that stuff.
"There’s real change that happens here and it directly improves life for all of us"
OVER 20 YEARS OF HELPING HOMEOWNERS PROTECT & BEAUTIFY THEIR PROPERTY
We're celebrating 20 years of service to the Portland Metro & Greater Vancouver areas. Both home & business owners have given us the chance to prove ourselves. We appreciate hard work and the opportunity to do it. So to them, "Thank You". Building a small business isn't easy, especially in a line of work where shady characters can prey on homeowners, abusing trust and taking off before jobs are complete. Unlike some contractors, we're absolutely proud of our reputation. Many long days, and a whole lot of elbow grease has built this business from the ground up. Now we're stronger than we've ever been. Cheers to the next 20 years. We hope you'll join us.
OUR CHARITABLE GIVING INITIATIVES
We believe in giving back! We work with a transnational charity foundation to provide life changing necessities to villages in South America. The more we grow, the more we give. There's no better feeling than making a positive impact on someone's life and by partnering with charities we can maximize our efforts.
"I truly appreciate that you were able to squeeze me into your schedule. Anthony & Scott were fabulous. It was all completed before the rain started and I'm so thankful to have time to have the house painted!"
