Jared Todd: A Flooring Manager with His Feet on the Ground
Jared Todd is the Flooring Manager at Rieke Office Interiors, coordinating all flooring project details from start to finish with his clients and general contractors to complete projects precisely and on schedule.
A single-minded focus on construction
Jared has been in some form of the construction industry since the age of 13. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Construction Management from Western Illinois University in 2004.
Jared was working for a competitor in 2011 when ROI beat him out of a project by $500. As the saying goes, “if you can’t beat them, join them.” He’s been here ever since.
A day on the job for the flooring manager
As flooring manager, Jared spends a lot of his time either on the road to jobsites or estimating projects back at the office, which on any given day can involve commercial remodeling or starting from scratch in a new building. As well as overseeing our standard flooring options, Jared works with the creative director to deliver unique flooring designs as well.
An average day is a mixture of the creative, the pragmatic and the routine. He is also a practiced diplomat, getting the best out of the people he works with while keeping his eye on design, details and deadlines.
The biggest goal on Jared’s career wish list is to hit the $3 million mark in sales.
Taking some time off the clock
Away from the job, Jared can be found fixing something around the house or working on a DIY project. Camping and fishing also rate high on his hobby list, along with a good game of pool. But chances are, if he has a few spare moments, he’s probably out playing in the yard with his 5-year-old daughter, Lola.
