Greg started working for his dad, Elmer, at his automotive shop at 16 years old. He purchased one of his dad’s auto shops and ran it successfully through the early 90's.
After years of wrenching vehicles, he decided it was time for a change. He sold the automotive shop and moved his family to Leander, Texas just north of Austin. With no prior experience in concrete and always one for a challenge, he decided to open a dispatch plant. He piecemealed mixer trucks and a batch plant and in 1995 Alpha Concrete was born.
Not one to sit still for too long, Greg enjoyed his time away from work building family homes as well as rebuilding salvage title vehicles for fun. He is still very much involved and active with the day to day at Alpha Concrete. Greg brings four decades of experience and extensive knowledge in all things mechanical and technical to DRIVERBACK.
Even though they are cut from same cloth, Michelle came to DRIVERBACK with a slightly different background. Michelle opened a storefront bakery, her childhood dream, in Austin at 22 and successfully ran it through her twenties. After years of slinging glitter and homemade buttercream, she decided to sell it.
Michelle started school to become a gemologist but abruptly moved to Houston to purchase her grandparents Organ and Tissue transport business after her grandfather passed. She immediately started school and graduated as a licensed funeral director.
She was looking for something more demanding than just the transport business and loved the thought of working alongside her dad and all that she could learn from him. She moved back to Leander and dove into the new venture with Greg.
Michelle has since become the resident operator of the injection molding machine and impact driver expert. She still owns and operates the transport business. On the daily she handles the website, marketing, and orders as well as the never-ending tasks that naturally come with startups.
