Bryan was born and raised in South Africa, growing up in a family of manufacturing and retail golf shops. Bryan’s family lives in South Africa and he and his wife, Emmy enjoy their trips back home to visit and enjoy the beautiful scenery and culture. He came to America on a golf scholarship and completed his MBA at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona.
During Bryan’s career, he has been a Project Manager for DriveTime in Phoenix, AZ and then took a position with All-State Industries in Des Moines, IA, as an Engineered Plastics Sales Rep. This role allowed him to assist Engineers at John Deere, Oshkosh Defense, Daimler, Komatsu, and many other OEM with new product design and development. Bryan’s portfolio just increased in skills and relationships with major companies. While in Des Moines, Bryan also played for and coached the Des Moines Men’s Rugby Club. Rugby has continued to be a passion in his life as he has continued to coach and mentor young men not only in the sport, but in career paths as well.
Owens Corning, the leading global manufacturer of Insulation and Roofing products, saw Bryan’s passion for people and brought him on as Senior Area Sales Manager for the state of Nebraska. He educated contractors about better roofing systems and helped businesses access the tools they needed to grow. He grew the market at a very rapid and successful rate. Bryan worked with many different roofing companies, Xcel Roofing being one of them. Seeing the stability and culture of the company, Bryan knew Xcel was the company he wanted to own and grow.
Bryan and his wife, Emmy, now reside in Lee’s Summit, MO. They are involved in the Chamber of Commerce, HBA of Greater Kansas City and several non-profits including helping Habitat for Humanity. They are building a great team and getting involved in their community One Roof at a Time!
