Since arriving in the Dallas Fort Worth are in 2003. I entered into the home window replacement industry and have been doing this since then (not always with Pella). Just prior to that I hailed from Medina, Ohio area where a younger brother and I had a home improvement company that specialized in kitchen and bath remodeling. That is still a thriving business without me. I have also spent several years as an licensed Insurance agent and licensed mortgage loan office. I also sent 15 years as a Auto loan officer working for Ford and Chevy dealership. I did all that after I spent 20 years as a U. S Marine, Retired Master Sargent. One moto I live by and its congruent with the Pella way of doing business, is, "There is no right way to do the wrong thing". That is why I sought to work here at Pella DFW. There are a lot of companies in this business, few if any, with the Integrity and honesty of this 95 year old company, Pella.
