Meet Elite: Clayton Putman, Commercial Project Manager

Photo of Clayton Putman“Roofing done right” starts with our Elite Roofing team, and the talented professionals that comprise that team set Elite apart as a top Denver roofing company for more than a decade. While we know and love our team, our readers may be less familiar with the individuals that make Elite tick–and that’s why we started our Meet Elite blog series.

This week, we sat down with Clayton Putman, who joined our team this January. Clayton is Elite’s Commercial Project Manager, playing a key role in our commercial roofing endeavors. A native of Houston, Clayton brings a decade of experience in the roofing industry and in sales, and he hopes to help build Elite Roofing’s brand as an industry leader in the commercial roofing space. Let’s get to know Clayton!

Hometown:  Houston, TX

Current City: Aurora; has been in the Denver area for 11 years 

Job Title: Commercial Project Manager

Previous experience: Clayton has been in the roofing industry for the past 10 years. His first 5 years were spent in outside sales on the distribution side, and for 5 years following that he owned and operated a commercial and residential roofing company. Ultimately, he decided to move from his own organization and chose Elite.

Why did you choose to work for Elite Roofing?  

“My approach to business and customer service aligns completely with Elite founders Randy and Cody. When I had the chance to change organizations, Elite was at the top of the list as far as opportunities were concerned. It’s an up and coming company, already big, getting bigger, and there was a chance to help make a positive impact.”

How does your past experience help you in your role at Elite? 

According to Clayton, time in the industry is a huge thing in terms of maintaining credibility and relationships. “I know a lot of people across many organizations, companies and tiers of responsibility, so just being fully supported by Elite to go out there and pursue those opportunities should lead to a lot of success for everyone.”

What’s your favorite thing about your new role?

“I really like being a truth teller and a value adder when it comes to challenging commercial roofing situations. Decision makers and property managers really need a reliable subject matter expert. I enjoy doing just that and helping craft innovative solutions to help them accomplish their goals. Unfortunately, for many our industry has a negative reputation, with many manipulative contractors out there, we have an opportunity to do it better and bring truth and value to our community. I really aligned with Elite on that, and I am excited to change that perception.” 

What’s the most challenging aspect of your role?

“Helping Elite make a strong injection into the commercial market. There are many companies that have a strong foothold in the market already. So, it’s going to take a lot of footwork, a lot of relationship building, and a lot of value adding to build long-term and sustainable relationships in the commercial sector.”

What vision do you have for the future of Elite’s commercial division? 

“I want to see Elite recognized in the city of Denver and the state of Colorado as one of the leaders when you need a commercial roof replacement or a commercial maintenance program. I want us to be known as a responsive, educated, partner—a value adder.”

What’s your favorite thing about the commercial roofing industry?

“Every job is different, and every job requires technical knowledge and creativity. There is more than one way to skin a cat in the commercial world, versus residential roofing which sometimes has less diversity in terms of the directions projects can go.”

Favorite thing about Colorado: A love of the outdoors brought Clayton to Colorado. “Dirt biking, snowboarding, hunting, camping, all that kind of stuff.”

Favorite Sport/Team: Colorado Rockies 

Favorite hobbies in your free time? 

“I love adventuring in the state with my wife. I do jiu jitsu, I like to rock climb, snowboard, lift weights. Reading is a big hobby of mine, too.  Always focused on improvement and staying on the PATH!”

Thanks so much, Clayton, for letting us interview you for our Meet Elite blog series! You’ve only recently joined the Elite family, but you already fit right in. We look forward to seeing your ideas and hard work come to life when it comes to Elite Roofing’s commercial roofing endeavors!

Brie Reis: Get to Know Our New CEO

Brie Reis: Elite Roofers new CEO.

Photo by Mark Leffingwell

In February of this year, our leadership team made the strategic decision to name Brie Reis CEO of Elite Roofing. This exciting development marks the beginning of a new and exciting chapter here at Elite. In less than a decade, Elite has grown from a little-known startup to Denver’s premiere roofing company; an accomplishment that, in many ways, can be attributed to Brie’s tenacity and business savvy.

Brie was the fourth employee at Elite, joining the team in June of 2010. Over the past nine years, Brie has helped shape Elite in every sense of the term. Having held many positions and tackled countless challenges head on, Brie has been an integral member of the team since her first day on the job. It was with great pride that the entire Elite family announced Brie’s new appointment.

How it all Began

At just twenty-three, and admittedly still trying to decide what she wanted to be when she grew up,’ Brie came to work at Elite as an admin. Her choice to take the position is still what motivates her today; working for a family company. Brie’s brother Randy Brothers is the founder of Elite. What began as any entry level position, at an unknown company, has proven to be one of the biggest opportunities of Brie’s life. Over the past 9 years, Brie has worked her way up, wearing many hats and helping make the strategic decisions required to successfully scale one of the nation’s fastest growing roofing companies.

One of the most important roles Brie has played has been establishing the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) that have enabled Elite to meet challenges and flourish as a result. One such example was two years ago, when Brie headed up an initiative to begin accepting online payments, just in time for storm season. In streamlining payments, the Elite team has been able to simplify things for their customers while increasing cash flow during the company’s busiest time of year.

Of her countless accomplishment at Elite, one of which Brie is particularly proud is her strategic role in establishing a middle management team. Though by some accounts, this move could be considered premature, Brie saw the need to establish a clear leadership structure in order to position the company to scale. This foresight enabled Elite to do just that; exceeding year over year growth goals for the past nine consecutive years. In fact, this scalable model positioned Elite to be named 3,597 on the 2018 Inc. 5000 List of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America. Expected to climb this prestigious list in 2019, Elite Roofing is just getting started. Under the sage leadership of Brie Reis, the sky is truly the limit.

When establishing her middle management team, Brie proudly hired all but one of her leaders from within. She worked with and groomed these team members, most of whom joined Elite just as she had, in an administrative capacity. Today she is extremely proud of this team of young professionals who have grown immensely, both personally and professionally, since they first came onboard.

A New Chapter

Though Brie will joke that the transition as already been ‘heavy,’ she is once again tackling her new challenge with enthusiasm and poise. As a young, black female CEO in the construction realm, Brie is excited about the platform her new position will provide. From an internal perspective, she looks forward to being a part of the edge that will bring Elite to the next level.

In the coming months and years, Brie plans to establish Elite as more than a leader in the residential roofing industry but as a force to be reckoned with in all facets of roofing. Thanks to many of Brie’s SOP’s, Elite has developed a proven storm-based business model, that caters to the needs of homeowners when they need it most. It is Brie’s goal to develop highly effective SOP’s to enable Elite to lead the charge in commercial roofing, repairs and many other disciplines.

As she looks to the future, Brie aims to leave a legacy at Elite, long after she is gone, of human growth. She hopes to continue to mentor and assist her team in reaching their true potential; both professionally and personally.

Getting to Brie’s Personal Side

When she’s not at Elite, Brie is busy at home with her family. Brie and her husband are the proud parents of a blended family of six. Together they are raising a family ranging from age eight to twenty-five. Brie and her husband have started and continue to lead a Blended Family Group, where members meet, share, connect and grow together as both friends and parents.

During her limited free time, outside of parenting or leading the group, she also occasionally finds time for cross stitch and poetry and has even tried her hand a rapping. Brie’s love of family is her grounding force, which helps her make a positive impact in virtually everything she does.

Words of Wisdom

When asked what advice she would give to young women with dreams of one day entering a leadership or executive role, Brie of course shoots it straight.

“Walk into every room as if you belong there, because you do. As long as you’re willing to put in the work, you deserve a seat at the table. The thought that you’re a young woman shouldn’t even cross your mind, it’s irrelevant.”

Congrats Brie!

On behalf of everyone at Elite Roofing, we would like to congratulate Brie for all she has accomplished both personally and professionally. We are so very excited to see where the company will grow under her leadership. Cheers to the next chapter!

Saying Goodbye to 2018 and Metal Roofs

It’s hard to believe that 2018 has come and gone! As the leader among Denver roofing companies, we have so much to be thankful for this time of year.  Here at Elite Roofing 2018 has been our best year yet and for that we thank each and every one of you. We could not have done it without the support of our valued customers and our families.

2018 in Review

Over the past 12 months we have shared many great successes as a team. Not only have we expanded the Elite family, we have helped thousands of Colorado property owners. With all of this expansion comes one of our most excited accomplishments to date.

Elite Roofing Named to the 2018 Inc. 5000 List of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America

In October of this year, Elite was named #3597 on the coveted Inc. 5000 List of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America. In just over a decade, our founders have grown Elite from a small roofing company to the largest and most respected of all Denver roofing companies. Not only does that success resonate here at home, but it has helped us gain notoriety on a national stage.

See what our founders have to say about this achievement and how this is just the beginning:

New Beginnings

With a new year comes new beginnings. In the spirit of delivering ‘roofing done right,’ without exception, we have decided to sunset our metal roofing offerings. While we have offered metal roofing for years and have had great success in the space, we feel it is best to keep our focus on our craftsmanship. Historically we have outsourced much of our metal work which limits our ability to deliver our signature Elite Roofing quality standard. In order to best serve the community at large, we have therefore decided to focus our Denver residential and commercial services on our areas of expertise including:

New Year, New Roof

If you are in need of a new roof or a repair in the new year, we encourage you to contact us today. Allow one of our experts to help you explore your options and determine an optimal time to complete the job. Historically this is a slower time of year among Denver roofing companies, which gives us the time to plan for the year ahead.

Whether you’re in need of a simple fix or a total roof replacement, we are here to help you navigate every step of the process.

Denver Roofing: Motivating Entrepreneurs

At Elite Roofing, we have been proudly serving Colorado property owners for more than a decade. During this time, our Founder and CEO has learned a lot about not only running one of the leading roofing companies in Denver, but he’s learned how to succeed in his entrepreneurial endeavors. He has recently taken on a new challenge; he’s helping to foster innovation in aspiring entrepreneurs.

Through the Roofing Academy, Randy Brothers’ latest venture, he aims to share a dialog about the challenges entrepreneurs face and help guide them through the up’s and down’s of it all. As a seasoned business owner, Randy brings years of experience to the table. Experience one can only gain from time spent in the proverbial trenches.

In a recent interview, Randy shared his motivation for pursuing his entrepreneurial aspirations. Growing up in hard working family that sometimes struggled to make ends meet, Randy aimed to build an organization that could provide stability for his family. Today he runs one of the top rated roofing companies in Denver, an organization that employs many of his family and friends. Now that his dream has been realized, Randy hopes to help others do the same.

See what Randy had to say in his recent interview:
