Gage Construction was started out of my passion for building. I started my construction career in 1990 working with insulation. Needless to say, it was not a fun introduction to the industry, yet it reinforced a strong work ethic. In 1994 I moved on to work with a national homebuilder as an Assistant Superintendent, in charge of taking over homes after drywall was stocked. I enjoyed the interaction with the customers. It was great seeing their home come together and taking part in the final leg of their journey.
In 1996 I was promoted to a Site Superintendent position, responsible for the construction activities for a particular subdivision. Being charged with ensuring all homebuilding ran efficiently on a site was a growing and very maturing experience. 3 years later I was fortunate enough to be promoted to a Project Manager. Within this role, I was charged with multiple subdivisions inside a specific geographical area. It was a great experience to take part in the overall coordination across various municipalities and multiple home plans.
In 2002 I was blessed to become the Director of Construction, and eventually adding Customer Service to my responsibility. I was responsible for all the daily activities of the construction and warranty departments. All the while learning the importance of ensuring all necessary steps are taken to enable the efficient, safe, and quality construction of all homes.
Finally, in 2008 I moved to SC to continue to pursue my passion of home building. As my career moved forward, there has always been these constants: the continued passion for construction, a respect for the industry, an aspiration to continually learn, and the sincere desire to see customers truly pleased with their new home.
