Meet The Team
Our company is made up of a great bunch of individuals who love what they do. That’s what makes DFI such a great company, and one that values each and every one of our clients. As some of the top professionals in the construction industry, the skills and experience our team brings to the table is what sets us apart from our competition.
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."
Adam has over 15 years of experience in all phases of commercial and industrial construction projects. His strong leadership style provides him with a reputation for creative problem solving and team building.
"I enjoy getting up and going to the office or my job sites every day. What I enjoy most is winning new work, closing out projects with a satisfied client, making the impossible-possible, and developing new expansion opportunities for the business."
With his strong desire to make a positive impact in the profession and the community, Adam is a member of the Economic Development Commission of Florida's Space Coast, Melbourne Rotary Club, and the Enterprise Zone Development Agency for the City of Palm Bay. He is widely recognized as an emerging leader in the industry.
"Construction is in my blood — I love it. From the time I was very young, I can remember listening to my grandfather, my dad, and my uncle talking about their construction business and I could not wait to be a part of it. Construction is very satisfying work in that you actually get to see the fruits of your effort."
Mike has been a registered architect since 1992 and certified general contractor since 2015.
