The oldest of six Jobin siblings, Brendan was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. He has been an entrepreneur from the get go and his earliest business ventures always included his brother, Casey Jobin. Brendan attended Washington State University with the intention of graduating and entering law school. On the heels of the 2008 recession, Brendan rekindled his entrepreneurial spirit. He founded a tutoring business that catered to adult students who desperately needed to retool their job skills. It was during this period that Brendan honed his natural ability to problem-solve, digest technical concepts, and provide exceptional customer care.
The business evolved rapidly as his customers’ requests grew in uniqueness and scope—he went from providing tutoring services to playing a lead role in the development and project management of research studies. A Saudi engineering firm hired Brendan to help develop and execute a research study that comparatively examined accelerated construction and innovative bidding techniques that reduce cost overrun and lengthy delays. While working on this study, Casey Jobin began to see some firsthand problems that are commonplace in the roofing industry. As Casey’s frustration grew, Brendan’s entrepreneurial mindset kicked into gear as he recognized an opportunity to improve roofing practices in Southwest Washington and the Greater Portland, Oregon areas.
