Van Edwards


What is your position within your company?
I am chief operating officer of Mid-South Roof Systems, Atlanta.

What is the most unusual roofing project of which you have been a part?
I worked on a project to reroof the luxury skyboxes at Sanford Stadium, Athens, Ga. We tore off the old roof system and installed a new single-ply PVC system. We had to crawl under several electrical houses on the roof as we installed the new roof system, but I liked the bird's eye view I had every day of my alma mater, the University of Georgia. Go Dawgs!

Why did you become involved in the roofing industry?
While working in the information technology industry, I decided to make a career change. At the recommendation of a good friend, I accepted a position with Mid-South Roof Systems. Joining the Mid-South team is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I've enjoyed being part of the company's growth and success.
