One of the most experienced members of the Arry’s Roofing team is Chuck Ankrom, Senior Project Manager for commercial and residential projects. Chuck is a Florida native and has lived in Tarpon Springs since 1978. He has been employed by Arry’s Roofing for the past 17 years, and previously worked for the company as an independent roofing contractor. This close relationship is his favorite part of working for Arry’s. “Knowing the owners for the past 30 years is like working for family,” he says.
“If we were to say anyone in the company is truly ‘family,’ it would be Mr. Chuck!” says Matthew Housh, Vice President of Arry’s Roofing. “Chuck and my dad have worked together for over 30 years. He is one of the most passionate and loyal team members within the organization. His knowledge is vast and his experience great, which makes him one of our best assets on highly technical projects. We are so thankful for Chuck’s commitment and success that he continues to share with us.”
Chuck’s job responsibilities include listening to customer concerns and catering to their needs, and he believes his greatest strengths are his loyalty and faith in God. He feels Arry’s Roofing is set apart from other roofing contractors in Tampa, FL, by a commitment to integrity. “We do the right thing when no one is around to watch,” he says.
Chuck has been married to his wife, Monica, for 19 years, and is most proud of the relationship they share. The couple has three beautiful daughters: Alicia, 25, McKenzie, 19, and Tiffany, 15. The family also includes Mollie, a yellow Lab, and Elijah, a male German Shepard – “to offset all the estrogen in the house,” he jokes.
In his free time, Chuck enjoys golfing, fishing, spear fishing and fantasy football. His favorite team is the Philadelphia Eagles. His favorite place to dine out is Mystic Fish, and his favorite TV shows include 24 and The Blacklist. If he could go anywhere for a day, he would head to Alaska to walk the glaciers.
Chuck describes his long-term goal as to “live life with overflowing joy and peace.” If he could give others one piece of advice about life, it would be to seek Christ.
Thanks, Chuck, for being an important part of the Arry’s Roofing team!
