Pittsburgh-native Dave Price’s career in the building industry is a surprise only to him. When he was young, his father built houses and Dave tagged along. When college called, he vowed never to return to construction again.
Fast forward 25 years and Dave is chief executive officer of Price Builders and Developers, a certified minority business enterprise providing general contracting, waterproof/restoration, “green safe construction” and management consulting work for residential, commercial and industrial projects. Founded in 1999, it has grown to an $8-million-a-year company headquartered in Cleveland. The company has worked on a number of the most significant new commercial buildings in the region, including those at The University of Akron, Cleveland Clinic and Youngstown State University.
Why Northeast Ohio? “It’s competitive, which brings out the best in you,” he says. “There are great opportunities here.” Price appreciates having resources, such as the Minority Business Accelerator 2.5+, for assistance.
Running a successful company is just one part of the equation. Dave considers it his personal mission to help others succeed in business. From cross training his office employees to holding informational classes for other minority owned businesses, Dave Price wants others to experience what he knows is attainable here in Northeast Ohio.
