Tony Wyss is normally a man of few words. Sure, the vice president and COO of Findlay Roofing had a few remarks prepared should the company he joined eight years ago as a salesperson be named RC’s 2018 Residential Roofing Contractor of the Year. But upon accepting the award before more than 500 other roofing contractors and industry professionals at the 14th Best of Success conference in September, it was difficult not to veer a little off script.
“This is an incredible honor, and a really, really humbling award for us,” Wyss said from the ballroom podium at the Frisco Omni Hotel in suburban Dallas. “This is very much about our team, our people. We’ve very proud of our status as the top residential roofing company in Georgia, but to be listed among the elite roofers in the country is an honor that we don’t take lightly.”
