Richardson-based Tella Firma Foundations (tellafirma.com) announced today it has added Justin Zuckerbrow to its executive team as Vice President of Business Development. Justin has 15 years of industry experience and extensive knowledge of foundations and construction.
“We are very excited to have Justin on board,” said Jim Fontaine, CEO of Tella Firma. “Justin’s entire career has been spent in the building industry. He has a history of significantly growing revenue and was responsible for maintaining and developing new relationships with customers, engineers and production offices. That is just the type of key executive we need to help us take Tella Firma to the next level.”
Prior to joining Tella Firma, Justin was in residential sales for nine years, followed by three years in multi-family sales for Suncoast Post Tension. He also managed the estimating and detailing group for the multi-family slab-on-grade division during that time period.
“I am passionate about this industry and building relationships,” said Zuckerbrow. “This is a great opportunity to bring my skill set to an entrepreneurial company and help grow the business.”
Zuckerbrow received his business degree from Ouachita Baptist University. He lives in Mansfield with his wife, Keri, and his children Jordan, Corbin, and Cadence.
By using a field-tested, patented process of elevating a slab-on-grade foundation, Tella Firma creates a protective void between the ground and the home itself. This application isolates the slab and guards it from damaging soil swells, contractions, and unexpected movement caused by light earthquakes. Most foundation damage results from soil movement that can be caused by expansion and contraction of clay soils due to moisture change or by seismic activity.
The Tella Firma foundation system is based on commercial engineering principles in practice for over 50 years. The system provides the strength and protection of a
pier-and-beam foundation yet is much more affordable and takes less time to install compared to most traditional, suspended foundations. Tella Firma foundations also utilize a green installation process to avoid the need for any type of chemical or water injection into the soil under the home.
Dallas-based Tella Firma is revolutionizing the way home foundations are built. Tella Firma gets its name from the Latin “strong home.” Foundations with the company's product have been installed throughout Dallas-Fort Worth, and Tella Firma plans to expand into new residential and commercial developments throughout the area.
