Laura Nevarez, Executive Vice President
In 1984, Laura started in the sheet metal business installing materials on houses. A few years later, she moved into sales working alongside Luis Armendariz until 1994 when we formed Metal Masters with Michael. Laura assumed the role of Office Manager for Metal Masters to oversee the day-to-day administrative functions for the company, including oversight of the accounting and sales department. As the company continued to show successful growth, Laura transitioned into a primary role as Controller to oversee all accounting and banking functions while moving her administrative responsibilities to the new staff.
In 2004, when the transition occurred from Metal Masters to Tinco Corporation, Laura continued as the Controller for the new company and played a pivotal role in separating the Payroll and Accounting departments to increase efficiency and strengthen financial controls. She remained focused on managing the accounting department until 2007 when the organization brought in a CFO. Laura decided to step away from the company full time to manage various family affairs, but continued supporting Tinco on a part-time basis. Today, Laura still is an active member of Tinco, supporting the administrative and accounting teams while remaining a valued board member of Tinco and its affiliates.
What is the most exciting thing about working in this business?
To see the growth of the company in the office and out in the field. Also, to see how much sheet metal installation and fabrication has evolved. I love seeing the projects once completed to admire our work, it is all so beautiful.
What is your personal passion and why?
To see where we started from and where we are today is just amazing to me. I think it is because of our many hours of hard work and passion to strive to be the best that we are one of the largest sheet metal companies in the US.
What is your greatest Tinco memory?
Remaining a family operated business because it showed us how much our employees love being a part of the Tinco community.
