The RG Team

RICHARD GARRETT – MANAGING MEMBERRichard Garrett

Richard grew up in Baker City, OR and moved to the Vancouver area in his early 20’s.
After 20+ years in the trades and working in construction management for other builders, Richard founded RG in 2009. A true “construction nerd” – Richard really enjoys the science of how a building goes together- especially here in the rainy Pacific NW. He enjoys meeting new people and building great projects and relationships with our clients! When he’s not busy at work he enjoys time with Beth and the family, projects around the house and fishing & hunting when time allows.

BETH GARRETT – CONTROLLERBeth Garrett

Beth was raised in the foothills of Hockinson and is still a small town gal at heart.
Beth gets to do all the fun stuff – like paperwork, accounting, risk & insurance. After 15+ years in the accounting field working for other construction related companies – Beth helped Richard start RG, and has worked in various roles, as the company has grown. She also really enjoys working with clients to build great projects, and the relationships we have built over the years; but as a mom to 4 young children, her role is mostly “behind the scenes” now. Away from the office – she is a busy mom to 4 fun kiddos and enjoys learning about natural, healthy living & getting back in shape after 4 kids in her 30’s!

ALEX BROOKS – SUPERINTENDENT

Alex was born and raised in Bremerton, Washington and began working for the Department of Defense while still in high school where he remained for 5 years in various construction positions. He has a strong technical background, enjoys seeing plans turn into finished products, and likes problem solving along the way. He most recently worked for the City of San Jose as a construction inspector before relocating back home to the Pacific NW! We think this varied background will make a nice addition to the RG team! When Alex is not at work he enjoys backpacking, skiing, and lifting weights.

JAMES “J.T” YANCY – SUPERINTENDENT

JT was born in southern California but ended up here in Vancouver, WA and attended Evergreen High School. He was a U.S. NAVY SEABEE for nine years with over five combat deployments and built many civilian projects during his time in the Service. He enjoys seeing the finished products for our clients and that each day is different. When JT is not working he enjoys spending time with his wife and newborn son. He also has a passion for riding Harleys as well as customizing them to make them unique.

BRETT MARSHBURN – PROJECT MANAGER

Brett comes to RG with several years of construction experience. A Pacific NW native he has worked across the country and him and his family have returned home to their roots. Brett enjoys seeing the projects take shape and transition into the finished product. He enjoys working with the clients and fellow team members and making work fun. Away from work he enjoys hanging out with his wife and kiddos – at the beach, camping, fishing and riding ATV’s, and watching the Kansas City Chiefs – Go Chiefs!

GLENDA REILLY – CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATOR

Glenda joins the RG team with many years of Construction Project Administration experience. We appreciate her cheery, positive personality and all the work she does “behind the scenes” supporting the construction team. When she’s away from the office she enjoys yard work, singing and spending time with her grand-dogs.

LACEY HUGHES – OFFICE MANAGER / BOOKKEEPERLacey Hughes

Also a BG native, Lacey is another paperwork gal! She handles the bookkeeping, some HR duties, policies & procedures, file management, and in general keeps the office organized and running efficiently. She enjoys identifying ways to improve processes and working “behind the scenes”. Outside of work, Lacey likes to bake, read, crochet, and go fishing/camping….but more often than not you can find her in the stands rooting her 4 kids on in their various activities!

JAMES WICKWIRE – CAD DRAFTER

James Wickwire is a CAD Drafter on our CAD / Design team. He loves the design process from start to finish – seeing the start of the design on a computer screen and all the way to the final construction and seeing it being realized. In his free time James like spending time in the outdoors with his family – going on bike rides, hikes, swimming, or just messing around and having fun. He also likes to longboard and play guitar.

ABBY LIPKA – DESIGN ADMIN

Abby joined RG in early 2020 as our general admin assistant – she quickly impressed the team and our clients with her positive, helpful attitude, dedication and professionalism! Abby’s dream job was to join the design team which she is now enrolled in design courses and serves as the design admin. Abby is a newlywed and when she’s not at work she enjoys going to the lake to wake surf and soak up the sun! She also loves to travel abroad and her favorite place so far is London.
