Our team’s roots are in small companies and family businesses, combined with extensive Fortune 500 level experience. 


Nearly 50 years ago, I began a career in the plumbing business while working for my father’s company in high school. Like many of you, I have ridden the highs and lows of this industry over the years. After selling my business in 2001, a close friend approached me about helping him grow his plumbing and HVAC company. At that time, I had no idea I was beginning a new career that would take me far beyond just helping out a friend.

Fast forward to today, and I am proud to say that I’ve spent the last 20 years coaching over 300 residential service companies focused on plumbing, HVAC, and electric services. It has been a rewarding career and has provided me with a unique view of our industry, as I have watched my clients grow and eventually sell their businesses to one of the many consolidators in the market. Through this experience, I realized things could be done better if more focus was put on the people and culture that made the company successful to begin with. This eventually led to the creation of Founders Home Service Group.
