Clint Samuel is the General Manager of our Chicago branch, (located in Addison, Illinois.) He loves the challenges of the roofing industry; such as weather, crews, and other unforeseen obstacles. He says, “I like working under pressure. It keeps me busy, determined, and motivated. I’ve always been interested in problem-solving and this industry provides me with plenty of it. The icing on the cake is seeing a homeowner’s reaction when they finally get to see their beautifully constructed, new roof. Their smile tells you everything you need to know. The sense of accomplishment is a powerful motivator.”
Before coming to Premier, he was a manager for one of the nation’s largest private collection agencies (United Recovery Solutions, parent company to Enterprise Recovery Systems) on the U.S. Department of Education contract for 3 years. He was responsible for three departments within that company, leading a team of 36 account managers. Prior to that, Clint was a general manager for UPS for almost 10 years, responsible for everything from training and setting up of new franchises to global logistics and routing strategies.
Outside of work, Clint is a car fanatic and enjoys attending local car shows. He is also a professional photographer and wedding DJ. In addition, he loves anything outdoors, including fishing and hiking. He has volunteered for the Boys and Girls Club of Chicago feeding the homeless at local shelters and also volunteered for Habitat for Humanity building homes on the Southside of Chicago.
