Personal History

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 growth coach.

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 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.
