I just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself to everyone as your new president for 2020-2021. My name is Taylor Smoak, and I am currently employed with JDH Company, Inc. in Chattanooga, TN. I have been involved in TARC most of my life and can honestly say this organization is like a second family to me. My grandfather, Benny Helton, was a founding member of TARC. Both my grandfather and my father, Jay D. Helton have both been presidents in this organization.
The roofing industry, as I like to tell people, is in my blood and is all I have ever known. Working for my father and being in the family business has its challenges, but it has never stopped me from growing and learning more and more every day. It is my desire and goal to be a part of JDH which my father started from the ground up, alongside my brother Andrew. To follow in my grandfather’s and father’s legacy is a huge honor and I want to make them proud so I will give my best to this organization. Thank you for allowing me to serve as your president.
