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.
