Paul Showalter


What is your position within your company?
I am chief financial officer for Showalter Roofing Service Inc., Naperville, Ill.

What is your favorite food?
The pineapple in Hawaii is like a dessert. Every now and then I buy pineapple here in Illinois, but it always pales in comparison. Does that make me a pineapple snob?

What is the most unusual roofing project of which you have been a part?
Holy Nativity Romanian Orthodox Church in Chicago—before the building started to sink and split in two, we installed multiple low-slope roof sections. We assembled metal domes on the ground and lifted them via crane to the roof.
