Meet the team
Bryan Huddleston is a Houston native with nearly two decades of experience in the residential and commercial roofing industries.
Bryan has been involved in almost every aspect of the building process from land development, supply chain management, operations, sales and marketing and accounting. His construction knowledge and 20 years of business experience is a powerful combination that has propelled Corey Construction to become one of the largest and most respected roofing companies in Texas.
Bryan began his career in the insurance business where he learned how to run a small business by working alongside his father, James Huddleston. In 1995, Bryan left the insurance business to work for US Home (now part of Lennar Homes) as homebuilding superintendent. It was at US Home where learned the production homebuilding processes from start to finish and it was also where he recognized the need for a professional, well organized roofing company. After working a short time with Home Depot’s Expo Design as an interior remodeler, Bryan decided to return to the homebuilding industry as contractor specializing in the installation of siding, doors, windows. It was after a hailstorm in 2000 that Bryan decided to get into the roofing business. Encouraged and supported by his existing customers, he began to focus on turnkey roofing.
Bryan has developed turnkey operations at Corey Construction that home builders and homeowners know they can count on for speed and quality. Bryan currently serves as President of Corey Construction.
Vice PresidentMike Budworth has 13 years of residential homebuilding and roofing experience as well as several years of engineering in both the oil and gas industry and the software industry. Throughout the years and across industries, Michael has a consistent track record of increasing sales and developing strong relationships with suppliers, customers and employees. He is from Minneapolis, MN and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering from Iowa State University.
He began his career in 1995 at BWIP (now Flowserve) where he worked as an applications engineer designing pump skid packages for large, international refinery projects. In 1997, he was promoted to a Sales Engineer position where he worked with major engineering contractors in the Houston area. He was responsible for coordinating the sales, manufacturing and delivery of skid packages to various international destinations. In 2000, he left Flowserve to pursue professional interests and opportunities for Kinesix Software. There he served clients in the space and defense industries, including NASA, Boeing and Lockheed Martin. He was primarily responsible for sales and implementation of the Kinesix’s graphical user interface software.
Mike left the Kinesix Corporation in 2002 to pursue his goal of running and operating his own company. Mike joined his friend Bryan Huddleston at Corey Construction in 2003 with the hopes to learn how Bryan ran his business so he could start his own. After enjoying some success and making a difference at Corey, Mike decided to stay and became a business partner with Bryan in 2005.
He currently oversees the operations side of the company. This includes estimating, pricing, purchasing, vendor relationships and new business development for all four branches. He is also instrumental in developing processes inside and outside of the office to ensure Corey delivers a high level of prompt and professional customer service.
Division Manager San Antonio & AustinBrent Huddleston is from Houston and started with Corey Construction in 2004. He has been involved in almost every aspect of the business since.
He began his career with Corey as a hotshot delivery driver, picking up and taking materials to the jobsites. Brent worked his way up the company ladder as a warehouse manager and, later, a field supervisor. He was responsible for coordinating materials and labor and ensured jobs were completed on time and on budget.
In 2009, Brent moved into sales, selling re-roofs and new-construction-residential roofs to custom homebuilders in Houston. Because of his solid sales performance, attention to detail and desire to deliver a high level of customer service, Brent was given the opportunity to start a branch of Corey Construction in San Antonio.
Brent became division manager of the San Antonio branch in 2011 and eventually spearheaded the opening of the Austin branch in 2014. His leadership in both branches has allowed Corey Construction to secure a large share of business in the Texas Hill Country.
Division Manager Dallas Fort Worth
Christian Viveiros is from Houston and has been with Corey Construction since 2008.
He was a technician working in the oil fields of Texas and looking to change careers when his childhood friend, Brent Huddleston, reached out to tell him about a sales position with Corey. Christian joined the company soon after and began selling re-roofs.
He quickly demonstrated an ability to work effectively with homeowners and grew his business through positive referrals. In 2009, he expanded his sales to cover re-roofs and new-construction-residential roofs for custom homebuilders in Houston.
Christian was eager to grow with Corey Construction and took an opportunity to move his family to the DFW Metroplex in 2011 to start our company’s DFW branch, where he serves as division manager. His exceptional sales abilities and people skills have made his branch the fastest growing among the four branches of Corey. He will move his team into a larger facility in Grand Prairie in 2016.
