He runs six companies, including Metal Roofs of Texas, Designer Glass Specialties, and J Wales Construction. Josey earned his reputation as a visionary and metal roofing expert who seeks to redefine best practices and disrupt industry standards. Josey is one of the youngest Inc. 5000 recipients, was featured on the CNBC series Blue Collar Millionaire, and was a featured speaker at the Corporate Millionaire Minds conference.
Joseys knack for cultivating talent, connecting people, and collaborating with other business leaders has helped to propel his career and the careers of those he works with. He has personally scouted, trained, and mentored his sales teams and crews to become experts in their fields, but his passion for motivating others extends beyond his employees. As a millennial entrepreneur, Josey seeks to inspire, motivate, and facilitate the success of others through what he calls the Millennial Millionaire Mindset, which encourages young people to take audacious action to accomplish their goals. Through his own website and guest speaking engagements at events and on radio and television programs, Josey contributes his opinions and perspective as a voice for young entrepreneurs and millennials alike.
Joseys drive to cultivate talent in others stems from his own journey, from struggling teen to successful entrepreneur. He understands the importance of maintaining a positive mindset and working tirelessly to achieve personal goals. As a child, Josey worked at his step-fathers printing company and spent time on political campaigns with his mother. While in high school, Josey worked to support himself through a door-to-door sales job. He eventually landed a sales position at a roofing company, where he took it upon himself to learn about the products and installation process. This broad expertise enabled him to excel in his position and earn the trust of his clients. When the timing was right, Josey started his own company and made the commitment to deliver the very best products and services for his customers.
Metal Roofs of Texas launched in 2007 and business boomed in 2011 after Josey solidified an exclusive distribution agreement with Interlock Roofing for Texas, Oklahoma, and Colorado. Josey was quickly named the number one Interlock Roofing dealer in the United States with $6.3 million in sales from residential metal roofing products. In 2011, Josey expanded his business portfolio to include Designer Glass Specialties, which provides high-end residential & commercial glasswork. In 2013, growth continued with J Wales Construction, a general contracting company that works on larger commercial projects including Marriott hotels and Hilton Garden Inn. That same year, Josey purchased a home performance dealership, which is dedicated to residential energy efficient products. Josey continues to build toward his goal of becoming a one-stop, full-service solution for homeowners and commercial clients.
Joseys persistent desire for supporting the growth of others led him to become a board member at HeartWorks, a charitable organization that helps young orphans through a series of special projects that are organized and funded through the efforts of high school students in the United States. The impact of this organization is two-fold; it successfully teaches children in the US about the value of sacrificing time and energy for the betterment of others, and provides children in need with the support and services they require. Josey has personally worked on hundreds of projects, including the construction of new schools for orphaned children in Haiti.
