BluSky® Restoration Contractors, LLC, has announced that Drew Bisping, chief operating officer, is transitioning into a newly created role as chief corporate development and strategy officer. Mike Erekson, current vice president of operations, was promoted to chief operating officer.
“Bisping’s extensive leadership and industry experience will drive BluSky’s expansion as he turns his full focus to our merger and acquisition efforts,” said Kent Stemper, chief executive officer. “This new role will allow him to focus on continued growth in new and existing markets through acquisitions, including restoration and other core services such as environmental and roofing. These additions will allow us to continue to expand our residential, commercial, and governmental services in all major markets.”
For the past 12 years Bisping has focused on operational excellence, business growth, and addition of locations and services. He has led the expansion of nine BluSky offices across the country, as well as the acquisitions and integration of Disaster One in 2017 and United Services in 2019. Through this growth, BluSky now operates 20 locations throughout the United States and has active projects in 40 states.
“I believe in the BluSky philosophy when it comes to merging with another company,” said Bisping. “Our approach is to protect all current employees and ensure they have a future with BluSky and more opportunity for growth than they may have had before. Our flexible acquisition model provides options for business owners who may be looking for additional business growth, greater support, or at some point a positive exit from their business while protecting the legacy they have created.”
Bisping has been actively engaged in the commercial and multifamily new construction, remodeling, and restoration industries for nearly 25 years. He has a degree in construction management, the Certified Restorer designation, multiple other industry certifications, and carries active general contractor licenses in over 40 states. Bisping’s knowledge, professionalism, and passion for the construction and restoration fields have earned him an impeccable reputation as an industry expert.
