Our Leadership


Greg got an electric guitar for his 11th birthday. 20 minutes later he taught myself how to play Michael Jackson’s Beat It. By the time he was a Junior in High School he was making $75,000 a year recording high school bands and rappers in his bedroom in New Orleans East.
When he reached his early 20’s he was bored with music, but had made enough money to build his own home. He got a CDL, borrowed his dad’s dump truck, and was off as his own general contractor. He felt energized. The passion he had lost for music, he found again in home design. Same itch, different scratch.

He enjoyed building that first home so much that he did another and another and another and started selling them as fast as he could build them. Soon enough people started asking him to help them build their homes. Greg says, “I love what I do everyday. Every home we build feels like I’m unwrapping that electric guitar all over again.” He would love to make music with you.


Sam got a job at Chic-Fil-A in the Esplanade mall when he was 14 years old. He worked there, alongside his brother, until he got out of high school. This was Sam’s first taste of excellence in productivity and efficiency in organization. 

Shortly after graduating High School Sam joined his friend Greg as one of the first employees at Troyer Builders. Sam was a hustler and did whatever it took to be successful. He showed up early and stayed late running errands, filing paperwork, learning the books, and laying sod.

Sam gained Greg’s trust, the clients trust, and the subcontractors trust with his positive attitude, playful humor, and flair for extreme productivity. Sam has been an integral part of the growth of Troyer Builders for the past 14 years, and now leads our team as Chief Financial Officer.


Manley was sixteen years old when he accidentally stopped a robbery at a local grocery store and was immediately given the job of assistant manager. That was the beginning of his leadership journey.

Over the past 25 years, Manley has developed broad skillsets including technology, marketing, fundraising, budgeting, forecasting, people development, project management, construction management and squeezed in enough time to win a dance contest and grab a couple of awards for graphic design.

He has served as a Marketing and Operations Consultant to Troyer Builders for the past 5 years, and joined the team as Director of Construction in the fall of 2020 and was promoted to COO in January of 2022.
