Our co-owner and CEO, Teri McDermott, had been working at CRD for over a decade before she moved into her current leadership position. With only 13% of construction companies in this country owned by women, she’s part of a very unique segment, which helps CRD offer a different type of remodeling company for homeowners to partner with.
In addition to overseeing CRD’s business operations and staff, Teri also conducts personal discovery calls, where she meets with homeowners to review their remodeling goals.
In the office
Michelle Woods oversees the Business Operations of CRD, from finances and tech to employee benefits and daily office management. Michelle brings her current CRD financial knowledge to all leadership discussions, as well as the CRD cultural value of “Work hard, play hard”.
From staff events to employee welcome lunches, Michelle not only works hard to make each employee feel like they’re part of the team, but she also makes sure they have the supplies they need to get the job done.
Leslie Eiler is the youngest member of the leadership team and is a recent winner of ProRemodeler’s national “40 Under 40” award. Leslie oversees CRD’s in-house design and architectural team and has a gift for creating and implementing clear and helpful processes to keep things moving along efficiently, especially during a pandemic when long lead and permit wait-times impact the remodeling process and our clients in a whole new way.
Jenny Zimmerman works hard to maintain the CRD branding and all public-facing messaging. Aside from keeping up with our socials, she focuses on making our client experience effortless by creating online resources like our pricing guides, portfolios, and other downloadable PDFs. She strives to make our clients feel valued by sending holiday cards and creating individual gift baskets to be given when a project has been completed. Jenny’s event coordination and planning has brought many fun experiences to our community with more to come in the future!
In the field
Each CRD remodeling project is managed by a Project Manager, who is responsible for all sub-contractor coordination, scheduling, client communications, and onsite project details. Currently part of a team of three, Kalia Krichko represents women in the field by working closely with clients, carpenters, and subcontractors to keep things on schedule. On any given day you’ll find her at jobsite reviewing order details with a carpenter or walking a client through their new addition. Her level-headed thinking and detailed organization have often received rave reviews from our clients.
