How has your career path placed you in your current position?
In the Marines, I learned the importance of dependability, organization, service, and loyalty. These attributes I use daily as I serve my customers.
How do you give back to the community through your business?
I am an active member of the Spring Hill Chamber of Commerce. I serve as a chamber ambassador. My wife and business partner, Pennie, and I also contribute our services throughout the year to The Refuge Church, where we attend. We also volunteer with Operation Christmas Child, and this year collected 49 shoeboxes of gifts to donate toward the global distribution.
Who is your favorite business mentor or role model?
My late father, Ken Rorex. He was a hard-working general contractor and I learned from him daily.
What is your favorite thing to do when not at work?
Well of course, it's golfing. However, I have recently taken up pickleball and I'm enjoying that indoor sport, too.
Where is your favorite travel destination?
My favorite travel destination is to Datura Villa, located in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
