Education: University of Phoenix Business Administration
Why I love what I do: My favorite part about my job is working directly with the customer to enhance their project. I also enjoy working in an industry that prides itself on its craftsmanship and relationships gained while working towards a common goal. Customers and dedicated colleagues make my job enjoyable and rewarding.
More About Me: I’ve lived in the Black Hills my entire life. I was born and raised in Hot Springs and that’s where I was lucky enough to get my start in the building industry. I’ve spent the last 12 years working in the Hot Springs, Rapid City, and Spearfish Builders FirstSource stores. I’ve been extremely blessed to develop lifelong relationships with great customers as well as our excellent Builders FirstSource team. When I’m not working I’m enjoying spending time with my wife and five kids. I also enjoy golfing in the summer and hunting in the fall, winter, and spring. The Black Hills is where I love to be and I’m blessed to be part of such a great industry that is truly a large family in itself.

Why I love what I do: I grew up in the building industry. My grandfather ran the lumberyard in my home-town for 25 years, and then my uncle ran it for another 10+ years. I seem to gravitate back to the building industry in some form or fashion out of personal interest. I enjoy helping people and teammates source products for their building projects and seeing some of the amazing homes our customers build….and what better place to live than the beautiful Black Hills!

Why I love what I do: I truly enjoy working with the people that come in to our Rapid Store to help them accomplish their goals. Whether I am working with a contractor, helping them grow their business by doing a quality job for their client, or directly with the homeowner in helping them realize the home of their dreams, I'm excited to help throughout the process. One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is being able to hear someone's ideas and then help them make those ideas a reality that exceeds even their expectation.
Bob Athans, Outside Sales Representative
Why I love what I do: I enjoy the personal interaction with our customers. I don’t think of them merely as a number, but count them as friends.

Garrett Stiles, Outside Sales Representative
Why I love what I do: I really enjoy seeing the sales process followed through from start to finish. I like working with builders and homeowners by gathering information for their projects, providing them a thorough bid on the project and then following through to see it completed. I enjoy the process of selling, and especially the component of it when the project is done and the homeowner or builder is satisfied with what it is they created.
Tom Collins, Outside Sales Representative

More About Me: Teamwork is something I believe in very strongly and if I can help be part of that team to help make someone’s job safer and enjoyable, I will.
Cory Claymore, Outside Sales Representative
Why I love what I do: I enjoy being able to work with customers and contractors to help them build their projects from start to finish. With my building experience background, I thrive in the ability to help customers visualize their projects as well as offer alternate suggestions to get the finished look they have always dreamed of. With the talent and experience of our team here at the Rapid City location, we are able to take on any project big or small.
More About Me: I was a contractor for almost 18 years here in the Black Hills as well as having my own construction company for 11 years. I decided to take a different avenue in the building industry and help homeowners and other contractors with their projects by supplying the products needed. I really enjoy getting to work with such a great team of coworkers every day.
Darrell Anderson, Outside Sales Representative
Why I love what I do: I like working with contractors. Many of the people I work with in this industry are truly genuine people and as a result, I have made a lot of new friends just being in the building supply business. I also enjoy working with homeowners to help them achieve the goals they have for their home.
David Dunbar, Outside Sales Representative

Education: BS in Business Administration, University of Nebraska at Kearney
Why I love what I do: Every day presents new challenges, and the excitement of working together with customers to get the answers they need for all of the projects they are working on is very rewarding. There is nothing more exciting than seeing a successfully finished project (other than starting the next project of course).
More About Me: I grew up in a small farm town in Nebraska, and I have worked in retail for many years. We moved up to South Dakota nearly 9 years ago, and we fell in love with the Black Hills. We decided that this is where we wanted to raise our children. In our free time, our four boys find a lot of fun things to do in the hills which usually keeps my wife and I busy and happy.
Amanda Schroeder, Cabinet Designer / Millwork Specialist
Why I love what I do: I have been designing kitchens and other interior spaces for over six years, ranging from remodels and renovations to completely custom, forever-homes and everything in between. While there are many things that I enjoy about what I get do, one of my favorite things is being able to hear a person’s wants and needs for their space and then making it a reality for them.
It’s wonderful seeing their vision, whether it is a sketch on a piece of paper or a Pinterest board, and then using those ideas to design their ideal space. Being able to assist them throughout the entire process and seeing it go from a sketch, to 3D rendering, to being lived-in…that is very rewarding.
Carey Agena, Cabinet Designer / Millwork Specialist
Why I love what I do: I’ve always had an interest in design and the home building process as my dad used to build houses when I was growing up. I love the process of creating a space for the customer that is useful and beautiful; it’s so exciting to see their vision come to life!
More About Me: I have been married to my husband, Todd, for 26 years, have two amazing kids (adults!) Zachary, 23 who is a technical ambassador for a bike wheel company in Colorado and Jennifer, 20 who is in her last year of college at Montana State University for Interior Design. My husband and I are still trying to get used to being empty nesters, so we are attempting to take up golf. I love to bake and watch cooking shows, and spend time with family every chance I can.
Brad Hoevet, Sales Support
Why I love what I do: My favorite part of this job is actually two things. First, I enjoy the team I am able to work with, I have amazing co-workers. Secondly, and equally important, I love the satisfaction of knowing the customer is satisfied and there is an appreciation for when all is well.
Chuck Jones, Sales Support
Education/Certifications: Associates Degree, Architectural Drafting and Building Construction from Mitchell Vocational Technical School
Why I love what I do: I love the customers and the colleagues that I have built relationships with over the years. There’s never a dull day in this industry, always something new.
Gary Carlson, Inside Sales Representative
Why I love what I do: I enjoy helping customers get their project done, and then seeing them come back to do business with us again because they're happy with their previous purchase and help.
Rod Busetti, Drafter Designer
Why I love what I do: The people I work with and the contractors most of whom I would consider my friends. I believe that a happy staff that can make the decisions when needed is paramount. Most of us have been in this business or construction most of our adult life and I think it shows.
More About Me: I think it's very important to our customers that they get to work with a knowledgable sales staff. Other large building supply stores seem to come up short in being able to provide expert knowledge about building and products. In addition to our products, our people is what gives us the edge and earns the trust and loyalty of our customers.
Dallas Richter, Drafter Designer
Why I love what I do: I have always enjoyed designing things from a young age. As I got older, I always wanted to be in the design business. The ability to take an idea and make it reality is something that I find very rewarding.
One of my favorite parts of my role with Builders FirstSource is meeting with customers and listening to what they want in their home. Through those conversations I am able to take those ideas and design them exactly what they want. As a residential designer, it is very enjoyable when you finish the design of a home and look at what you just produced, knowing that a person or a family will be living in a home you designed.
More About Me: I was born and raised in the Black Hills area on a family ranch. I earned my drafting degree at Western Dakota Tech and stayed in the area after graduating, working for a local architectural firm for 19 years. In this role I designed commercial, industrial, hospitality, medical, educational, assisted living, restaurants, and residential buildings.
When I am not working as an architectural designer, I am an assistant women’s college basketball coach for a local university. Prior to coaching college basketball I was a high school football and boys and girls basketball coach for 16 years. Apart from that I continue to help out on the family ranch and when I find free time, I enjoy doing a little fishing and spending days at the lake.
