Breaking it Down: Sample Construction Bio

No Comments

Interested in learning how to write a great construction bio? In our sample construction bio, we primarily focus on the licensed general contractor business owner or licensed construction entrepreneur. We will address other levels of construction bios for the freelance contractor, contractors with a specialist niche, and the handyman (or woman) at a later date.

In this sample construction bio, our subject is a licensed contractor entrepreneur who came out with a cost-effective solution for clients and homeowners. This construction bio hits all the marks. The first paragraph introduces the co-founder/CEO and the name of his company.

Names of individuals and institutions have been changed to protect their privacy.

Sam Shelly is the co-founder and CEO of YBuild. With proven results through his successes as a licensed general contractor and entrepreneur, Sam is known to his clients as the perfect contractor because he always looks out for the client. 

We introduce Sam in the first paragraph with his title and role. 

His brainchild, YBuild, is a dynamic construction renovation software that empowers homeowners to take control of their own builds and projects without hiring a general contractor or construction professional. From bidding to virtual consultations, the app is a one-stop shop and cost-savings solution for the homeowner. The company’s state-of-the-art technology will put an entire project into a personalized step-by-step project guide with the expertise of a general contractor. YBuild can even arrange an in-person site visit for the homeowner.

The second paragraph of this construction bio then describes and explains how the client would use the software and app and in what capacity. The chosen words are dense, easy to understand, and to the point.

Next, we go back to the founder/CEO and give information about his reputation, educational background, and experience in the construction industry. This information reinforces Sam’s knowledge and trustworthiness in the construction industry, proving his success by bringing in revenue numbers.

Sam is construction royalty and brings his industry expertise to YBuild. He got his beginnings in the business by working for his father in his real estate development company during the summer months. After Sam left college, he worked for his father, running projects for him. After some time had passed, Sam decided to branch out and start SHELLY Homes Inc. Sam built many high-end residential developments, bringing in revenue of $15 million annually in client work. 

The next few paragraphs bring in a layer of intimacy by mentioning his family, including his parents’ migration from a foreign land. We all suffered during the pandemic, and Sam was no different; this brings an element of relatability. He is just like the rest of us; he got through this rough patch, and we can all relate.

However, the construction industry landscape began to change when the pandemic hit. Sam’s clients were primarily high-end, and he felt the need to pivot with new construction and renovation changes not as drastic. So he began setting the seeds for Ybuild.

Sam attended San Francisco State University and studied international business. The oldest of three children, Sam was born in Chicago to parents who had immigrated from Poland. The family moved to San Francisco when Sam was three years old. 

The last paragraph is significant because the reader gets the entire essence of Sam; from being happily married with children, which implies legacy and family, this is important in an industry where families are essential. Sam also has a life and hobbies, which brings everyone together, and the reader gets a clear picture of Sam.

Sam is happily married to his wife, and they have three daughters. His hobbies include exercising, mountain biking, skiing, and golf. His favorite pastime is boating with his family.

This construction bio is a sure winner for Sam’s business website!
