Chad learned how to shingle a residential roof when he was thirteen and subsequently bought his first roofing nail gun, compressor and hoses when he was fifteen.
He graduated from The University of Texas in Austin in December 1989 with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration with the double Majors of Marketing and International Business, Minor in Spanish.
After graduating Chad started and Import/Export Company in the Spring of 1990 while pursuing an MBA at UTD and working full time in the food service industry. Imports took off and the MBA had to be put on the shelf. He soon learned that he needed more cash to finance his little Import/Export operation. More cash than he was making as a waiter. In the Spring of 1992, he typed the first flyer for Central Roofing and passed them out “door to door”. With the help of the flyer, old clients and “word of mouth” came thru.
That flyer in the spring of 1992 changed everything. Fortunately, Central Roofing grew beyond Chad’s wildest expectations. Unfortunately, the Import/Export Company he loved so much had to go the way of the MBA. Only so much time and so many resources or better yet, lack thereof.
