Scott’s vast design knowledge and history in both the general construction sector as well as the roofing industry combined with Brett’s knowledge of roofing components and products and how they are installed made for a perfect team. In 2017 an independent manufacture representative opportunity presented itself and Rocky Mountain Reps, Inc was created.

Shanda is a Colorado native but lived in the Tampa, FL area for 10 years during her high school and college years. She graduated from the University of South Florida with a Bachelor’s in Business and then earned her MBA and JD graduate degrees from Stetson University in Saint Petersburg. Upon graduation, she immediately moved back to Colorado where she loves spending time in the mountains camping, skiing, hiking 14’ers, biking, and kayaking. Shanda’s education prepped her well for business management in high risk and compliance-heavy industries. She has over 10 years of B2B sales experience in multiple industries and managed a multi-million-dollar small business branch successfully for six years. “When you truly believe you offer the best product and service through trust and integrity, you enjoy your job and it feels less like work.”
At Rocky Mountain Reps Inc., Shanda provides inside sales support and office management for several quality division 7 construction brands. She works hard to be familiar with all the construction projects in Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana, to know and partner with the best general contractors, construction managers, and consultants, and to share product knowledge with leading architects and building owners. “I have a lot of respect for folks in the construction industry; my husband is a longtime wood finisher and one of the hardest workers I’ve ever met.”
Like so many others in recent years, Arik moved to the Denver area in search of an active-outdoor lifestyle. Originally from a small town in central Wisconsin, he completed his degree at the University of Wisconsin and was promptly recruited to Green Bay as a manufacturers sales representative. Arik spent the early part of his career consulting as a manufacturers rep alongside contractors and distributors in order to bring transparency and results to facility managers in the design community. His work ethic and results were recognized and Arik was quickly promoted to the NYC/North Jersey territory. While there, his skills were sharpened by New York’s competitive environment. His peers and superiors commend his integrity and attention to detail in assisting architects, designers, facility owners and managers in the design and utilization of their interior space.
Arik brings his experience as a manufacturer representative and client success management to Rocky Mountain Reps and is excited to grow and develop his network in our market.
