Ten years ago, RC
featured Josey Parks as one of the first handful of Young Guns for his
passionate pursuit of perfection as a roofing contractor and his ability
to think big. Even then, when much of the roofing industry was slowly
transitioning from paper to a digital profession, Parks, at age 25,
stood out as an active voice for embracing technology and adopting new
principles for sustained success.
While some resisted change and
rebuked his warnings of the tidal wave of tech to come — largely because
of his youth and inexperience — many, industry-wide, embraced the
enthusiasm. After achieving success focusing on metal roofing sales in
the residential market, Parks fused his passion for roofing with that
love for technology and began innovating independently.
