My name is David Prillhart. I am 39 years old, married, a father of two children (15 AND 7), and have worked for Tucker Paving, Inc. in Central Florida for the past 12 years. I have much experience in estimating/sales the type of projects that your company performs from a simple driveway to a multimillion dollar site project. I can adapt very quickly to the task at hand; I am a hard worker that takes pride in doing a good thorough job in all that I do; and I am very good at working with customers (that is what I do every day).

I am also self-motivated, dependable and an honest person who knows how to work hard and efficiently. I believe that I can do anything that I set my mind to. Almost twelve years ago I was hired as a Dump Truck Driver for Tucker. In 10 months, I was asked to change positions to be an Estimator (an office position). Within the next three years, they offered me a Vice-President position. I managed sales, budgets, a department staff of six and up to sixty other employees, day to day customer relations, and many other tasks that my job required. I believe that I can be of good value to any company as I have for Tucker Paving over this past decade. At Tucker I have also have gained an extensive knowledge of people (customers and fellow staff) and know how to build an environment that my fellow workers and customers enjoy. I also handled the company’s finances, project management, and have an extensive knowledge of computers and can use these skills at any position.
