Our highly experienced crew knows maintenance. It’s our thing! We commit to you that we never cut corners and promise a wealth of knowledge and incredible team members for your project. We are proud to introduce our Project Manager, Derek O’Reilly and Building Engineer, James Rivera, so you can get to know us better!
Derek O’Reilly – Project Manager
Derek came to Colorado over three years ago from a Union position with a mineral supply manufacturing company in New Jersey. His brother has lived in Colorado for over 20 years and after finally talking Derek into joining him, Derek says, “Everything just fell into place.” Starting out with small repair and construction projects for a maintenance company has led him to his position now as Project Manager for OA where he is responsible for all project proposals, scheduling, completion and invoicing. Passionate about learning new skills and helping people, Derek appreciates that the dynamic of OA team members is laid back and yet still efficient and productive. Our wide range of services including drywall, painting, and remodels means Derek never works quite the same day twice. He is always ready for the next challenge and is currently tasked with completing a fence for an HOA property designed from blueprints created specially by an engineer. The original fence, built sometime in the 60’s, has required multiple repairs and needs an upgrade. Going above and beyond in design, materials, communication and execution, Derek is overseeing this complex project while maintaining over 40 other properties as well. Derek hopes to see OA double in size throughout this year and the next, and when not at work you can find him backpacking, climbing, skiing, mountain biking, snowshoeing or participating in water sports.
James Rivera – Building Engineer
James has worked in carpentry all his life. Beginning at just 16, James began his journey in a Chicago carpentry apprentice program, leading to employment as a proud Union member where he has developed skills in carpentry, maintenance, and repair projects for over three decades. He grew up in a blue-collar family and now has a big family of his own with five grown children and grandchildren as well. James has lived in Colorado for over five years, still working with his love of carpentry and utilizing his extensive experience. Now with Overall Appearance, James has a goal of excellence in the maintenance division where his dedication to his work means he rarely takes a sick day and he thrives off the multitasking aspects of his job. Working with HOA’s it’s important that OA members work at a team as they help keep over 40 properties maintained. Team members like James and their incredible focus on production and excellence means, we get the job done right the first time.
As summer comes to a close, both Derek and James are looking forward to the fall and winter repair projects headed their way. If you would like more information about our team or how we can offer our services please reach out to us today!
