Chief Executive Officer
As one of our founders, Phillip provides the company vision, steering the ship with integrity and competence. Phillip started in the construction industry back in 2004, painting houses. He had such a way with clients and an eye for quality that he quickly progressed into the management ranks, eventually becoming CEO of the painting company. He later moved back to Lexington and opened Craftsmen Contractors with childhood friend Jacob Hardy.
Phillip excels at solving complex problems for homeowners, cutting through red tape to craft a fitting solution. He loves motorcycles and bourbon (but of course not at the same time!)
Chief Operating Officer
Jacob oversees and coordinates projects from start to finish. He partnered with Phillip to found Craftsmen Contractors after experiences in the construction and business realms: He started as a carpenter’s assistant 15 years ago while pursuing a degree in Construction Management and then transitioned to Commercial Project Management. He then received his MBA and traveled to the Middle East.
In his free time, he enjoys traveling and problem solving. With the ability to speak three languages (English, Spanish, and Arabic), he is able to clearly communicate and resolve any issues that may arise during the production process.
Joel oversees all sales and marketing operations, along with hiring and training. After getting his start in sales 27 years ago, he moved up through the ranks to Trainer, then Sales Manager, then COO. Joel has a great sense of humor, which he puts to good use in the field and when making home visits!
Joel approaches all situations as a customer advocate first, and makes sure our customers’ expectations are met. He enjoys being the life of the party, and is an avid Star Trek fan.
Senior Project Manager
Adam manages our commercial and residential remodeling division. With over 22 years of construction experience, he has held just about every job in the industry at some point, and he is knowledgeable about every process involved in building a house.
Adam is excellent at advising on the functionality of a planned project, as well as its impact on resale. In his free time, he enjoys spending as much time outdoors as possible.
Marketing & Communications Director
Stephen oversees the call center and day to day marketing activities. After studying Philosophy in college, he went on to work in construction sales. After a stint in a call center within the medical field, Stephen returned to construction sales within Craftsmen Contractors. He worked his way into management, where he draws on his previous sales and call center experience, adding a marketing focus to his experience mix.
Stephen always has an ear out for the customer, and an eye for the customer experience from the initial call to the conclusion of a project. In his spare time, he enjoys going on long hikes with his kids in the Daniel Boone National Forest.
Jennifer is responsible for coordinating many of the behind the scenes aspects of construction and is works on many simultaneous projects. She graduated from the University of Kentucky with a degree in Integrated Strategic Communication and started with Craftsmen Contractors as a temp but quickly became invaluable to the team.
Jennifer specializes in working with insurance companies to maximize claims for homeowners, and she is excellent at walking customers through that complex process. She is a die-hard UK fan that usually dyes her hair blue for big games.
