PhillipPhillip Ratley - President & CEO
After 17 plus years of managing construction projects, 2001 was the year Phillip decided to pursue his lifelong dream of business ownership. “When you put your entire life savings at risk, the first thing you think about is your family”. Providing for my family is the area that matters most. I have a practical down-to-earth “roll up your sleeves and get it done” approach, which has made me different in the construction industry. I focus exclusively on the needs of our clients and building a team that pays attention to every detail. My areas of expertise, include completing fast-track projects on time and on budget. I am known as a problem solver with a fiercely creative mind and think outside of the box. “No” is not an option..... there is a way every time.
