What is your position within your company?
I am president of The Quality Roofing Co., Kansas City, Mo.

What is the most unusual roofing project you've performed?
We installed an EPDM membrane in the attic of a 10-story office building in downtown Kansas City. It was over the server room of a mutual fund company. I was told they did millions of dollars' worth of trades every minute.

Why did you become involved in the roofing industry?
My father had a 40-year career with Barrett Co., Peoria, Ill., as a plant manager and I started with them as a laborer in the factory.
