What is your position within your company?
I am founder and president of DCG Roofing Solutions Inc., Des Plaines, Ill.

What is the most unusual roofing project of which you have been a part?
My company completed a 300,000-square-foot reroofing project on a U.S. Postal Service distribution center in Chicago. We were tasked with protecting the tons of mail inside the building while ensuring postal workers could access the building at all times. The project had a tight timeframe, but we successfully completed the job on time without disruption to the facility and without a single leak.

Why did you become involved in the roofing industry?
I enjoy working with a variety of people on my team as well as clients. In the roofing contracting business, each job is different, and we always get to help people solve problems. There's a sense of pride in what we do, and it feels good to know we make a difference while completing an honest day's work.
