He is a licensed Professional Engineer with the State of Ohio, a licensed plumber in the state of Ohio, as well as a licensed Land Surveying Intern. His professional career has run deep in construction and design with great responsibilities entrusted with him along the way.
From his humble roots of growing up on his family’s farm near Gambier Ohio, Troy learned the value of hard work and the value of people being able to trust you at your word. These core principles guided him from his time laying block during high school, to his college job inspecting subdivisions and performing various types of land surveying.
To begin his professional career, Troy took a position as Estimator/Project Manager with Head, Inc. where he specialized in construction of airfield facilities. Projects he was responsible for ranged from $3,000,000 to $12,000,000. After starting with Head, Troy established himself as a “go-to” employee in the company taking on the difficult schedules and tight budgets with less experienced crews. These circumstances helped to further mould him into the professional he is today, by enabling him to make daily decisions in quick order that affected the bottom line of the project and the quality of the delivered product to the client. During his time Head, Inc., Troy was a primary contributor to the success of the company.
After starting a family, Troy accepted a position at Team DDS, Inc. where he quickly grew into a leadership position. Taking what he learned from his past experience in the design-build industry, Troy was instrumental in propelling the company forward and upward. He was responsible for every aspect of the company’s work, internally and externally. He provided construction management for projects ranging from $100 to $1,000,000. He was also responsible for the professional engineering and drafting. This includes painstaking detail paid to architectural, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC portions of the project. He quickly became the company’s General Manager, where he was able to implement knowledge and values he had obtained from his career to focus on client procurement and business development.
During his free time, Troy enjoys spending time in the woods and fishing with his two daughters Tory and Taylor.
