John Todd made a major change in his life at the age of 53. He decided to leave the corporate world and become a small business owner! He assembled a team and searched the Dallas Fort Worth market for a small business that had a sound yet interesting business model. After looking at telecom, printing, dry cleaning businesses and the sort, he found a residential remodeling company. The model felt right, the financials made sense and most importantly, the company created a level of excitement that Mr. Todd was looking for. Now, 12 years later he is the Dallas Builders Association’s Remodeler of the Year (for the 5th time) and an Honored Life Director. Mission accomplished. Mr. Todd will discuss the steps he took to retool Elite Remodeling from a discount provider to a full service value added provider. More importantly, his commitment to education, technology and processes to build the foundation for growth and the company’s ability to endure the ups and downs of the construction.
