Working Together

Personal History

Starting out as a contractor himself, he’s walked in your shoes, climbed up ladders, got yelled at by homeowners, had employees steal from him, and has dealt with most of your challenges.

He’s learned how to successfully position and market contracting businesses to be the major player in their market. Currently, he’s the only serial construction business owner running your type of business and working as a construction business coach. He was also a former Big 10 football player who started his career in financial planning, earning his Chartered Financial Consultant Degree and considers himself a QuickBooks Ninja!

He took over the family roofing business and since then, he has bought and sold six construction businesses including his commercial roofing business, O’Hara’s Son Roofing, for over a million dollars (He’s the son BTW).

He is a business coach that understands how to grow and manage profitable construction co’s, how to nail business development, and how to create value for all stakeholders in a construction business.

 

Personal Accomplishments

Big Wins

Has won back to back National Franchise of the year in an HVAC restoration company that we started from scratch.

Currently he owns a masonry company that he manages in under 10 hours a week that did over $850k in 2017. (He use as my test pilot for new initiatives and techniques he can apply toward the contractors he coaches).

Speaking of coaching, he is a world-class youth and HS football coach with a 88-15 career record, so when you get coached by Les, expect a lot of football analogies like BLOCKING AND TACKLING”!
