Corporate Account Executive
Bill comes to us with nearly three decades of sales, account, and project management experience in the residential commercial construction and sales industries. We added a member to our team who has a full “toolbox” with valuable experience in sales, multi-level communication, and building processes. Having spent years working with clients, contractors, building departments, and engineers, at the end of the day, bringing a customer’s dream to fruition has been his calling card. He moved into the management field for several years, passing his experience on, and we can proudly say he is excited to get back to his roots and join our sales force. He loves every new project that comes his way and views each of them as a new and exciting challenge.
We are very proud of the skilled craftspeople who build our products. As a group they are very capable, experienced and committed to building quality products. When we put the “Carriage Works” emblem on our products, it really means that their names are on every one as well.
