Chad Hall
President

Born in south Georgia, and raised in Texas, Chad Hall has deep family roots in the construction industry. His grandfather was a concrete contractor. His dad was a painting contractor. With construction is in his blood, it's no surprise that he thrives in the building industry. In the early 2000's he founded, operated and sold a very successful drywall company that serviced multifamily projects nationwide. Upon the sale of his company, Chad once again was drawn to the building industry, this time in cabinet distribution. After working with a couple of Houston-based cabinet distributors, Chad's commitment to his customers and desire to provide them with a higher standard of service led to the idea of Builders Alliance. Chad currently lives in the Houston area with his wife and 3 boys and manages the corporate headquarters in Houston. Chad is proud of the level of success that everyone has worked so hard to accomplish here at Builders Alliance LLC, and he looks forward to an even more amazing future.

Trent Smith
Vice President

After graduating from Texas A&M University in 2011, Trent returned home to Houston, where he worked in outside sales for a building materials distribution company. It was there he developed a working knowledge of cabinets, distribution and the building industry. In working first hand with builders on a daily basis, he realized the need for a cabinet company that could provide the building industry with a higher level of execution, a need for a cabinet company with unrivaled service, and a need for a company that cared as much about the success of his customers as he did. There was a need for Builders Alliance. Since the creation of Builders Alliance LLC, Trent has personally worked in just about every role possible. His willingness to do anything to make Builders Alliance successful, has served a vital role. It's no surprise that when Builders Alliance expanded into the Dallas-Fort Worth market, Trent and his wife, Ashton, packed up their lives, put their home on the market, and relocated to the DFW area. He currently lives in Grapevine, where he manages the Dallas-Fort Worth branch.

JOHN RIPPLE
VICE PRESIDENT OF SALES

John's hard work and personable demeanor was quickly noticed as he was soon recruited by a large, local building materials distribution company. There he cut his teeth in custom and production builder sales while adding windows, cabinets and counter tops to his sales arsenal. John credits his rapid succession to the position of Vice President of sales to his fellow co-workers, exuberance for the building industry, loyal customers, and giving back to the building industry. While serving as VP of sales, John has worked with and formed relationships with many of the top professionals in the building industry.

Billy and Bobby Tieck
Master Installers

Some people are born with the God given gift of creating things with their hands. The Tieck brothers, Billy and Bobby, are two of these special people. Born in Sioux City, Iowa, they moved to the Houston area at a young age. Both brothers got their start working with wood as furniture makers, crafting high-end pieces by hand. Wanting something a little more fast paced, they broke into the building industry as trim carpenters. Bobby also branched into concrete work as an assistant superintendent on a big tilt wall job. For the last 10 years, the Tieck brothers have worked for Larry honing their skills as cabinets installers. Their innate wood working skills combined with Larry's tutelage have proven to be a potent combination. Bobby, his wife Francy and 2 kids, now live in Austin where he serves as operations manager at the San Marcos Branch and is working on building Builders Alliance brand in central Texas markets. Billy, his wife Rebecca and 4 kids, still live in Houston Texas, where he manages multiple install crews and all installs for Builders Alliance in the Houston market. Their tireless efforts and unrivaled commitment to customer service have been instrumental in the rapid growth and success of Builders Alliance.
