Meet the Team
Hi I’m Greg! I have been with D & D for 14 years. I had my own business doing concrete work for 23 years before running the service department here at D & D. I’m originally from Indiana but have been in the Sarasota area for over 40 years! I always make sure we are providing the best solution to our customers and treating them the way I would want to be treated. It is so important to follow through with what we say and satisfying our customers. I love Garage Doors Sarasota, FL!
Hi I’m Steve, and I am the Manager here at D and D Garage Doors in Sarasota. Over the last few years I have been in several different jobs including customer service, motorcycle mechanic, and assistant sales manager. All of my experiences and training help me have a thorough understanding of the mechanics and how important our customers are. I decided to join the D & D Garage Doors team because of opportunities and growth the company offers. I was born and raised in Sarasota and I’m actually a former crew chief for the national motorcycle road race team. I love being able to help people, and we get all kinds of garage door issues called in, so no two days are the same. That keeps me on my toes and keeps it exciting for me.
Hi I’m Tom! I have more than many years of construction experience, beginning as a business owner of a custom cabinet company to construction management. Before coming to D & D two years ago, I worked for a national home builder at the Sarasota-Manatee division and a local custom home builder. I grew up here in Sarasota and graduated from Sarasota High School. I have raised my family here and worked in this area for more than 30 years. My goal is to fulfill the needs of each customer in a timely, efficient manner. I love my work and my ‘family’ at D&D.
Hi I’m Joe Ernst! I’ve been with the D & D Family for quite a while, most recently for the past 2 years as the Sarasota Sales Manager. I’ve worked as a Superintendent/Area Manager for national production builders and local custom homebuilders here in the area. I also have extensive customer service and purchasing experience. Previously here at D & D I ran the service department for in Sarasota and managed our Tampa Division. I am no stranger to the home industry or garage doors. Like a few of us with D & D, I was born and raised in Florida, Sarasota Florida to be exact, I graduated locally from Booker High School. So not only do I know garage doors, I know the area I service. When D & D says, they are locally & family owned, it’s the truth and it is one of my favorite things about working for this company. In fact, my own father is the Builder Sales Rep for Sarasota. I love being able to help our customers with their garage door purchases. We are straightforward and honest with them through the entire sales process and I know our customers appreciate that. If I had to tell someone one thing about this company it would be, integrity – that’s the reason we are here 22 years later! When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my wonderful wife of 13 years and my 3 fabulous children. Being born and raised in FL we are Rays, Noles & Bucs fans!
Design Center Sales for Residential and New Construction
Hi my name is Michelle and I have been with the D & D family since 2011. I am the Sarasota garage door, design center sales person for residential and new construction. My background is in lighting; furniture and interior design so naturally choosing the best door that complements a home is something I take great pride in. I love the American Dream story behind D & D Garage Doors – “from the barn to garage door empire” as our local newspaper refers to it. What has kept me here so long is that I absolutely love my job, my team here at D & D and I feel extremely valued by my bosses. We are all working together to see how great of an experience we can create for customers and the possibilities of growth for this company are endless. I am a 3rd generation native and have lived in the area all my life, originally in Bradenton but now residing in North Port, FL. The most important part of my job is to WOW our customers. We don’t want to be just slightly better than another company. We want them to have one of the best shopping memories of all time and make it fun and stress free all while getting to know them in the process. We are looking for a relationship over time, not just a quick sale for the day. If I had to tell someone one thing about D & D Garage Doors it would be, “ We have an amazing future ahead of us because of doing things right in the past.”
Hi I’m Matt and I have been part of the D & D family for 4 years now. I have been a service technician and installer and I just recently accepted a promotion to retail sales. I am excited to have moved into the sales role here at D & D, I am comfortable helping customers with their purchase decisions. I have previous sales experience with Mullets Aluminum products. I am happy to be part of the D & D team. Our family friendly and employee first atmosphere attracted me to D & D. For such large and growing company we are still very “mom & pop” like. I’m originally from Sarasota, FL, born and raised. I come from a hard working family and I instill that value on my children as well. I love to be able to help a customer or fix/ install a garage door or opener to the point that the customer is so satisfied that they would keep coming back and tell their friends about my quality of work. Dedication and customer satisfaction is the most important thing about my job. D & D has giving me so many opportunities to grow here. I truly love my job and there are not a lot of people who can say that!
Hi I’m Stacey and I am the Service Scheduler for our Sarasota Design Center. I am happy to be back here with D & D! In 2003, I started here as a receptionist. At that point there were only 6 employees in our little shop across the street. I learned and grew with the company. Before we knew it we were moving into the warehouse where we are now and hiring more and more bright faces to help our team. I worked for D & D many years ago for 6 years. I left to start my own business and was asked to come back after I closed my doors. Knowing what a great company this is I couldn’t say no! In 2014 I came back and have had many seats and worn many hats while working for here. I’ve gone from answering phones to scheduling service to scheduling new construction and on occasion work and train in our Port Charlotte design center. In 2016 I even filled in as manager of the Tampa office. Now I am back in town and scheduling service calls. The most important part of my job is making my service technicians and our customers happy. When things run smoothly on my end it makes everyone else’s job run smoothly as well. D & D Garage Doors is a family oriented business that will do anything for the people who work for them– that makes me proud to work here!
Ahoy my name is John! I have been the Commercial Scheduler for service & installs at D and D Garage Doors in Sarasota for the last 4 ½ years. I previously worked at Omega Garage Doors for 4 years and became part of the D & D team in the September 2010 acquisition. Prior to this I was employed in manufacturing and plant engineering in New England. I have continued my position in the commercial division and enjoy the challenges, variety and diversity of the projects we are involved in on a daily basis. I am originally from Rhode Island and came to Florida to escape the cold New England winters. My wife and I really enjoy Florida, so we try to take advantage of all its resources especially boating, fishing, kayaking, art, and photography. The most important part of my position is providing timely, quality service & doing the job right. I love the interaction with the customers including commercial businesses, homeowners, municipalities and the full range of customers we service. I enjoy the challenges and the variety of the projects we do in the Commercial Division. Here at D & D Garage Doors, we all strive to provide excellent customer service, professional, technical planning/design and accurate installation.
Hi I’m Jessica! I have worked at D & D Garage Doors in Sarasota since 2013 and I am the service scheduler. Right away, after I started I realized how friendly the people I work with are, real team players, who try to help each other in any way possible. Before moving into the garage door field I was an alarm dispatcher, which was very fast paced. I know the area well having been born and raised in Sarasota. My family consists of very honest people that like to travel & take adventures. The most important part of my job is being precise and patient. My job keeps me busy, I travel to many of our “sister” D & D office locations, from Sarasota down to Ft. Myers so I can help train & assist. D & D Garage Doors has been and continues to be a great place to work. We do honest work and everyone is treated equally.
Hi I’m Will. I have years of experience in garage door service, garage door repair and garage door installation. I started with D & D Garage Doors 8 years ago as a garage door service technician, worked in the service department for 6 years and then moved into the office as the install scheduler. I am happy to now be servicing our customers out of our office and showroom. I meet new customers every day and enjoy helping them. I pride myself on honesty and integrity with all our customers. The team we have in place at D & D Garage Doors makes coming to work a lot of fun. Give us a call and we will fix any garage door repair!
Hi I’m Tarree. I have been part of the D & D family for 6 years now. Before coming to D & D Garage Doors I worked for an excavating/brick paver and landscape supply company here in Sarasota, I did most of the accounting, ordering, helping customers make their selections, sales and job site measuring. I have construction knowledge, at least how the process works but most of my background is in bookkeeping/accounting. I knew Dallas (one of our owners) through softball, our daughters played in the same league here in Sarasota, and from that I just knew this was a place I would like to work at. I am originally from Michigan but I have lived in Sarasota for over 40 years. I have 2 daughters, Michelle and Elizabeth whom I am very proud of. Elizabeth plays softball at Sarasota High School and also for he Quicksilver travel ball team through Miss Sarasota Softball. The most important part of my job is making sure that when the garage door orders cross my desk they are correct and that customer is going to be able to get what they want. If I notice any issues I immediately let our sales person know so it can be corrected before the garage doors are even ordered. I always try to get orders in & delivered as quickly as possible. My job keeps me very busy, and because we are always growing it keeps it very challenging. No two days are the same, nor is it boring and I love what I do. This is a great place to work, we all get along and feels like a family!
Accounts Receivable for Sarasota
Hi I’m Renee and I work in Accounts Receivable here in our Sarasota garage door design center. I’ve been part of the family for about 3 years now. Before working here I had always heard such wonderful things about this company, how we cared for our employees and that our owners came from a religious family and operated with morals & superior customer service. I can honestly say all this is true. I am a mom to 8 year old boy/girl TWINS and a 4 year old little girl. I have been happily married for 3 years. We are very involved with our church.
The most important part of my job is responding to our customers in a timely manner, getting them what they need, when they need it. I love working with numbers, it has always been fun to me and I love the people that I work with in our accounting department. If I could say just one thing about D & D Garage it would be that this is a great company to work for, very family oriented!
Accounts Receivable Fort Myers & Port Charlotte
Hi I’m Dawn, I have been part of the Sarasota garage door design center for 6 years now. I retired from well know Florida based company Publix supermarkets after 21 years of service. I was also the United Way coordinator for 2 of my Publix stores so I am well versed in serving our community. After Publix I worked at SaraMana wholesalers, towards the end when the company was being bought out, Dallas one of our owners, offered me a job here at D & D. Originally I was born in Decatur, Alabama. I was 5 years old when we moved to Sarasota, Florida – so always been a Florida girl at heart.
I have been with my husband for 26 years and we are excited to be expecting our first grandchild! We are very involved as D & D is, with Miss Sarasota Softball.
The most important part of my job is making sure our customers have what they need when they need it. Our accounting department works hard to service our customers and we all work very well together as a team. D&D has grown tremendously in the 6 years I’ve been here. We all work really hard to make our customers happy!
Accounts Receivable for Orlando & Jacksonville
Hi I’m Debbie! I have worked in the Sarasota garage door design center for 3 years now. I started in the garage door business in 1997 when I moved to Florida. I have extensive garage door experience including purchasing, accounts receivable, material costing, coordinating shipments to our other locations and figuring piece work for the installers and service techs. When D & D merged with Omega garage doors in Venice, FL I transferred over to this wonderful company. I am originally from Vermont. I decided to come to Florida to be closer to family since most of them had relocated here. My son just graduated from the Air Force as a military police officer and is being deployed to Turkey. The most important part of my job is to be accurate & precise in invoicing so that the customer knows exactly what was entailed in the job we preformed for them. I like working with numbers and I enjoy the family atmosphere here in our office. D & D always puts the needs of the customers & their employees first above anything else.
Accounts Payable (All Locations) – Accounts Receivable (Commercial Division)
Hi my name is Jenny and I work out of our Sarasota garage door Design Center. I have been part of the D & D family for almost 4 years now. Before coming to D & D, I was a stay at home mom raising 3 children for 14 years, you can say I have a lot of experience multi-tasking, problem solving and making everyone happy 😉 I was excited to join the D & D team as I know both our owners are hard-working and this is a great family atmosphere. My father-in-law also works here. I am born and raised in Sarasota so I know the area very well. I work both accounts payable & receivable. Gathering the right information like job names, addresses, part #’s & pricing is very important to our overall operations. Keeping track of 11-garage door Design Centers keeps me on my toes. I respect my bosses, because they respect me. They are flexible with my schedule since I have a family and I enjoy the people working around me. We help each other out when needed.
Hi I’m Kim, and I’m in the Commercial department. I started off at the counter in charge of parts. Next I became a Service Scheduler. Afterwards I worked with the accounting team and installs, so I have experience from several areas of the company. I am from a very large family with 7 kids. My mom had 3 kids when she met my Dad and he had 2 boys. Then my parents had 2 children. I was born and raised in Ohio. But my family had property on the east coast of Florida and I fell in love with the state. I lived on the other coast for about 8 years and then moved to Georgia 10 years, where I started in dispatch with my father’s trucking company, dispatching 50 trucks. I made the move to D & D Garage Doors in 2013, because I was ready to try something different. Now I love working with my co-workers and the customers that I get to assist. I am always making sure the job is done and in a timely manner.
Hi I’m Robert and I was the manager in our Tampa Design Center. Then I moved to the Sarasota office. I have been with D & D Garage Doors since June 2013. I have over 15 years of experience in the garage door business so being new to D & D does not mean I am new to garage doors. My background has primarily been in Management & Sales. I have held positions such as Operations Manager, General Manager, Account Sales Executive, and Regional & State Retail Account Representative. I am proud to be a part of the D & D Garage Doors team, I love the fact that we are family owned and operated. I am a Florida boy, raised in the Tampa area but I attended the University of Georgia so “Go Dawgs!!!” The most important part of my job is to provide outstanding customer service. The most important part of any service company’s job is to provide unparalleled customer service and we strive for that here at D & D. It separates us from our competition and keeps our customers happy. I love the team I work with, we are not employees or colleagues — we are family.
