Board of Directors



Larry Lucero
Banker Insulation

I've been estimating at Banker Insulation since September 2007. I started during the good times, and survived the bad. I've estimated just about every type of commercial job in the valley. I've even done a few residential projects. I have grown with the commercial division at Banker. When I started, not a whole lot of GC's knew Banker was in commercial insulation. It took some knocking on doors, but when everyone realized we were commercial insulators. We got real busy real fast. Fortunately, our crews performed so well. Our commercial devision took off.

I joined Chapter 6 in 2008. As I recall. It was a rather large group. I didn't know too many people outside of a few GC estimators. In 2011 Ken Stohlmann asked me to help with the Golf Committee. I took over for Ken in 2012 and continued to 2015. The last year was a bowling tournament instead of golf. During my run on the committee. Tom Mayer got me so fired up about the chapter and where it was going I had to be a part of it. So I ran for a spot on the board, and I've been a fixture ever since. With the way things are going now. I'm just as fired up if not more so.
