Suzie Boyd

What is your position within your company?
I am vice president of Academy Roofing Inc., Aurora, Colo.

What is the most unusual roofing project of which you have been a part?
Installing our first DOW POWERHOUSEâ„¢ Solar Shingle job. Because the product was new to our company, we spent a lot of time working with the homeowner, utility company and Dow employees to bring the job to successful completion.

Why did you become a roofing contractor?
I became a roofing contractor kicking and screaming. My husband, Curt, and I both worked for a roofing contractor. One day, Curt came home and said he wanted to start his own roofing business. I wasn't as enthusiastic as he was, but we did it anyway.

What is your roofing industry involvement?
I serve on the National Roofing Legal Resource Center's board of directors, and I'm a member of NRCA's Government Relations Committee.
