Collier Construction announced the hiring of Richard L. Roberts as its chief financial officer.

Establishing this position and recruiting Mr. Roberts are the result of the organization’s continued expansion to meet the Chattanooga community’s need for homes that exemplify the best in quality and design.

Mr. Roberts has over 30 years of experience in the corporate, public and non-profit accounting scene and has garnered a strong reputation among his peers for his exceptional analytical and management skills. In addition to his leadership skills, he is experienced in auditing and preparing financial statements, as well as payroll processing, project budgeting and relationship building.

“We started as a small, local, family-owned construction team. Although we are very much still local and family-owned, Collier Construction is growing to meet the demands of our community,” said Ethan Collier, founder and president. “We needed an experienced and dedicated professional to fill our newly created chief financial officer position. I had the pleasure of working with Rick during my board service at Habitat and saw his dedication and leadership. We welcome him to the team.”

Before joining Collier, Mr. Roberts served for over 10 years as the CFO for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area. His background in accounting systems and processes specifically related to the construction industry gave him a unique insight into that role, as well as for his position now with Collier. Mr. Roberts holds a Bachelor of Arts in business management from the University of South Florida and is a member of the Institute of Management Accountants.

Collier Construction started in 2001 as a construction company committed to building homes that provide for the economic health and well-being of the homeowners, the community and the environment.

Over the past two years, Mr. Collier has completed nearly 40 homes in the community known as One Hundred at South Broad. Mr. Collier most recently announced an expanded partnership with Uptown Firm as well as a $6 million townhome project on E. Main Street. In addition, they are working together at a new site called Reside North. This small development offers the only new residential construction in the North Shore area at a price point below $230,000.
