Meet our Executive Team

Gary Cavins


President, Founder & CEO 


Gary has 20+ years in the industry. He and his wife Jessica started their business in February of 2010. With the support of his wife and family, coupled with hard work, he has been able to grow and expand his business every year. Though he is CEO, President, and Founder, you will still find him at a job site working next to his employees. He understands every aspect of the job, and he is a quick problem solver. 

Jessica Cavins


Vice President & CFO


Before Jessica became CFO for the company, she was an advanced math teacher. Coming from a background in math and a teacher makes her an excellent and organized CFO. She has a balance between work and home that is hard to do, but she gets it done. Besides being Gary’s business partner, she still manages to take care of her family.  

Tim Flying Out


Senior Project Manager & Estimator


Our Senior Project Manager oversees all our projects. He meets with the architects, owners, and project managers. Tim and his Project Engineer send out all the contracts to subcontractors, get the permits for each job, and coordinate the day to day work with the subcontractors and owners.

Keith Ahpeatone


Senior Superintendent

Keith has been with us for over a year, but he has 40+ years of construction experience, which is evident when you talk to Keith. He runs his jobsite safely and efficiently. He is OSHA 30 Certified, and takes every part of his job very seriously.

Stephanie Lowe


Maintenance Coordinator & Executive Assistant to President

Stephanie’s role in the company is coordinating with Subcontractors and Owners on our Maintenance Division.  She's fluent in most aspects of the business and can help assure you have a smooth transaction with Cavins Group.  

Josh Copeland


General Counsel


Josh Copeland is the In-House Counsel. He has worked with Gary and Jessica for over 4 years while having his own practice. In December of 2018 he joined the team full time, and moved into the office. Josh writes up all our contracts, and reads through every contract that comes to us.

David Serna


Maintenance Superintendent 

David’s background started in landscaping with his father, and today he oversees our Maintenance Crew. He will stay on the job until its done, and done correctly, and does it with the best attitude. David is also OSHA Certified.

Chris Smith


Sales Director

Chris is new to the team, but not new to the business. He’s our outside salesman, and finds projects that don’t come to us. He goes to them. He specializes in roofing, and is an excellent estimator.

Allyssa Carlisle


Project Engineer

As Project Engineer, Allyssa deals directly with the Subcontractors, Architects, and Owners. She makes sure that each contract is signed by the Subcontractor before they start working on the jobsite. She also uploads the drawings and specs to ProCore, which is a website we use to organize and communicate with everyone associated with each project. 

Simba & Duke


Security Team

Simba came to the Cavins as a rescue from Heartland Lab Rescue several years ago and the family instantly fell in love with him.  Duke joined the Cavins as a rescue in 2018 and it was like he'd always been there.  This dynamic duo keeps the office spirits high and assure no funny business happens around here.

Lorenzo Olivio


Maintenance Superintendent 

Lorenzo started off as a carpenter and has worked his way up to managing the job sites. He has worked on jobs that range from 1 million to 100 million. And just like all our Superintendents, he is OSHA Certified.

Samantha Sanders


Asst. Estimator & Office Manager

Once a job has been decided on, Samantha sends out bid invitations out to all Subcontractors that we have in our file. Once the subcontractors review the job, she gets their bid, and forwards the information to Kyle. She also must answer the questions that come from the Subcontractors, so she is always knowledgeable about each bid. 

Nik Mishokav



Our Asst. Superintendent, Nik, went to college and earned his Master’s Degree in Engineering Technology. Before coming to us he was the Head Engineer and Technical Director for Astra, LLC. He has worked in high-rise construction, as well as smaller projects.
