Meet Our Team

Van Haas

My family had a small business, and I grew up in it. Customer service, marketing, pricing, capital acquisitions and more fascinated me. I loved learning about all aspects of business, and from that early age found myself focusing on finding ways to improve existing systems to do things better, faster and more efficiently. I was always looking to improve existing systems and become more profitable.
