Coming from a “Blue Collar” background and being the son of a teacher, Chad was taught early on the value of a dollar and the value of a good education. During his teens, he worked with the family logging business during summers and on Saturdays. The work ethic his grandfather and father showed him during this critical time in his life has stuck with him. He often refers back to the lessons learned during those times when working with clients.
On the logging crew, his job was to run the knuckle boom/loader. It was typically the safest job in the operation but also required the most care. If he didn’t evaluate the entire log before making the first cut he would have had too much waste and ultimately left money to rot away. He attempts to use the same mentality when working with our clients. He is able to help you survey your business needs, ensure you are educated on what your options may be before suggesting a solution.
