Bryan is an owner and managing partner, project manager, and estimator at Elite Contracting — and if that seems like a lot of roles, consider the fact that he originally started the entire company out of the back of his truck, handling every aspect on his own! Bryan loves to work with clients to make their dreams a reality. When he is not building, he enjoys spending the time with his family, whether it’s camping, snowboarding, hunting, or fishing.

A Kamloops native, James graduated from Thompson Rivers University with a diploma in computer systems operations and management. He also holds home building certificates. At Elite Contracting, James is an owner and is responsible for providing quotes and managing projects that fall into new construction, additions, and detached outbuildings.

In his spare time, James enjoys snowboarding, gardening, and hiking — and was even invited to the BC summer games for road biking.

BETHANY YOUNG

OWNER

Bethany was born and raised in Kamloops, BC. Upon finishing high school, she chose to stay in the community that she shares such a strong connection with.  As the Events Manager at Nature’s Fare Market for a decade, Beth has a strong vision for growth and is always excited to see projects reach their potential.

As an owner and Operations Manager at Elite Contracting, Beth manages the day to day operations of the company, from personnel issues to engaging with suppliers, contractors, and designers. Collaborating with these partners is definitely Bethany’s favourite part of her role — as a solutions oriented person, she loves ensuring all is in place for a successful outcome.

When not busy raising two young children, Beth keeps close contact with her extended family and friends, enjoys keeping active and works on her own personal projects. Bethany is currently on maternity leave and will be back in late fall of 2021.   

VICTOR

An east coaster by birth, Victor hails from the community of Bishop’s Falls, Newfoundland where he was very active in the community. He was on the central wrestling team, soccer team, and grew up playing league hockey. He is a graduate of the College of the North Atlantic where he obtained his red seal journeyman welder certificate. Victor has more than 20 years of experience in the home renovation side of carpentry.

A project manager at Elite Contracting, Victor is passionate about cooking, (especially if it involves entertaining for large groups), the outdoors, and being active at the gym.

MURRAY

A trained red seal ticketed carpenter, he moved to New Zealand in 2016 and spent time working on earthquake rebuild in the city of Christchurch. He also was the foreman on the largest steel-framed structure in Austral-Asia.

As a project manager at Elite Contracting, Murray works with clients throughout all stages of the project to ensure that they are receiving the house of their dreams. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling, participating in high alpine hiking treks, and practicing his own very special talent—cooking minute rice in only 58 seconds.
