Craig Evert “aka #TheCincyDeckGuy” – Owner
Since childhood, Craig has been around the skilled-trades. His father, who taught him the trade, dedicated his time to the home improvement industry. Following in his footsteps, Craig wanted to pursue a career where he too, could help turn clients’ dreams into reality. As an outdoor enthusiast in every way, he couldn’t see a more natural way to spend his time than to help others create and build the outdoor living space they have always dreamed of having. He has been a General Contractor since 2001 and in 2012, he made the decision to shift his main focus to the outdoor living space. Craig may be the owner, but he also helps design and build every new project. His hands-on technique is something he sees as a “crucial element” to building client relationships and ensuring customer satisfaction from start to finish.
Carrie Evert – Owner
Carrie is in charge of the office side of things and helps with operations. She joined Craig on his mission to create and build outdoor living spaces in 2014, after moving from Perrysburg, OH to Mason, OH. She grew up as a Produce Farmer in Tiffin, OH and has been an outdoor enthusiast herself since childhood. She graduated from a small college with a degree in Business Administration, and showcases an outstanding 15 years in Professional Human Resources at one company. She decided to change her career path to help grow the business. After previously dating in high school and going their own respective paths, Carrie and Craig were reunited and married in 2014. They now share the business, a total of 4 children, 2 dogs and several ducks.
Dennis Coffman – Sales Manager
Dennis has a background in Sales as well as IT Process Improvement. He left the corporate world a few years ago and has now entered into the Outdoor Living sector. Being an outdoor enthusiast himself, Dennis has been a tremendous asset not only to CMR, but our customers as well. You may see Dennis during your initial in-home appointment with us, or he may be behind the scenes putting a pencil to your estimate. In either case, when you schedule your showroom appointment to review your project, Dennis will have all those pertinent details ready for you!
His main role is to help customers through the sales process, line out all the details of their project and put a number to it. Dennis enjoys helping people see the vision of their new backyard!
Becky Ehling – Office Manager
After 15 years in the service industry, Becky was ready for a change of pace that would allow her to spend more time with her family. Outdoor Living is new to her – but helping to keep things running smoothly, in a fast paced environment, is a role she is used to! Her main focus is customer communication. Once a client signs a contract with CMR, Becky is responsible for the weekly emails letting each customer know where they are at in the installation schedule, what’s needs from them, timeframe, etc. Her friendly demeanor and commitment to customer satisfaction guarantees you’ll enjoy your experience with CMR from beginning to end.
Becky’s favorite outdoor activity is soaking up sunshine while relaxing with a good book and glass of wine!
Taylor Jamison – Field Manager
Taylor has been around skilled construction, of all forms, his entire life. His father, who taught him the trade, is who he started working for at a young age. Together, they installed anything from decks, interior trim and doors, to kitchen cabinets. At an early age, he grew a passion in designing and building decks. He studied at The University of Cincinnati for architectural drafting and CAD. Taylor knew he wanted to do more than just build decks…he wanted to be able to each customer from concept to build.
Taylor’s main focus is gathering all the initial customer information during our Site Inspections. He gets a feel for what the customer is looking to accomplish, takes all the measurements and brings that information back to our sales team to put together the detailed proposal. Since he is involved with each project early on, he has an in-depth knowledge of how each project needs to be completed.
Derek Coffman – Finance Manager
Derek is a graduate of The Ohio State University where he earned his bachelor’s of science degree in hospitality management along with a minor in business management. His professional background includes experience in hotel management, sales and logistics. In seeking a new challenge, Derek decided to shift his focus to the field of finance where he can utilize his love for numbers and unmatched attention to detail to analyze company data and implement reporting processes. While most financial managers may tend to function in the background, out of sight from clients, Derek’s devotion to customer satisfaction means you will always be greeted with a friendly smile during your showroom appointment or visit.
With Derek’s background, he will play a major role in the growing phases at CMR. Stay tuned for more details!
