The Trueson Family continues to expand
In 2013, Barry and Brian had built up enough of a customer base that it was time to hire someone to manage home-base. Kara Parish was hired to manage the accounting and clerical work and she did this from Barry’s personal home. She eventually upgraded her office to the shop outside of Barry’s home in the middle of rural Ashland, Missouri. 2014 saw the addition of Chris Sivert and Nevada Shelkey. Chris was hired to measure and order material, deliver materials to job sites and coordinate with sub-contractors. Nevada was TrueSon’s first sales team member. With Sivret and Shelkey, the company had grown to 11 employees including 7 crew members, 1 admin, 1 production team member, and 2 sales representatives, officially outgrowing Barry’s personal shop. The TrueSon family found a new home in a rented space on the South side of Columbia, Missouri.
