Mike Rhodes, CEO of RBS
Mike Rhodes – CEO

My entire adult life has been spent in the construction industry with the primary focus on metal building related general construction. This specialization includes hands on knowledge of design, sales, structural fabrication and building erection.

As a general contractor, I have been exposed to all other phases of commercial and light industrial construction, including but not limited to site work, concrete foundations, interior finishes, mechanical, electrical and air conditioning.

This hands-on experience has spanned almost 50 years and I have witnessed substantial changes in both, the economy and the way we do business.

My day-to-day duties include updating of estimating software, designing new drafting templates for AutoCAD library, cost estimating, limited drafting and sales.
