What is your position within your company?
I am president of Hy-Tech Products Inc. and Hy-Tech Roof Drains, Cleveland.

What is the most unusual roofing project of which you have been a part?
The most unusual roofing project I worked on was the Chrysler® building in Twinsburg, Ohio. The project involved tearing off and replacing 22,000 squares of roofing material. The crew of 30 workers completed 130 squares each day, which included applying four plies with coal tar pitch. It was amazing to watch.

Why did you become involved in the roofing industry?
My dad was involved in the roofing industry, so it has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.
