Don has more than forty-two years of experience in all phases of commercial general contracting, including leadership and management, supervision, estimating and project scheduling. Don founded DFI in 1987 because he wanted to fill a gap in the industry, and he makes running the business a family affair.
"Being a father is my most favorite job."
So how does a father of two young boys balance a full service, fully staffed commercial/retail construction firm that owns and operates its own equipment and his family?
"I don't need a lot of sleep, I'm either working or spending time with my kids."
The boys play baseball, basketball and football. The boys enjoy going to job sites and learning everything from running equipment to running a successful organization. Don is very close to his own dad and often recalls advice and lessons he's learned from him,
"It was a lesson a minute with my dad.
His advice is usually the best."
