Dennis Mitchell - Founder

Dennis was formerly the Deputy Building Official in Loudoun County, VA. His efforts were focused on promoting communication between his staff and the construction industry as well as creating awareness for The Builders Foundation which began with a simple day of golf in 1999 with several architects, engineers, contractors, and some members of his staff. Dennis has served on numerous volunteer boards including two Governor-appointed committees. He is married, has three grown kids, five grandchildren, two dogs, and a cat. He enjoys traveling, golf, fishing, hunting, and hanging out in his man cave (the garage). Most of all he enjoys being able to make a positive difference in the lives of those in need.
