Meet the Team
As the third generation of a family of home builders in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, Stephen began his career working for his family business, Gordon Builders. It was there that he began a small remodeling division. Realizing that he had found his passion in remodeling, he went to work for an established home renovation company to learn his craft and gain experience. Then, in April of 1996, with two small children, a desk in the basement and a one-page business plan, he took the leap and opened InSite Builders & Remodeling. Now, over two decades later, Stephen is proud of InSite's Client for Life model which is based on the trust and camaraderie that is established throughout a project as well as on the quality of our renovations.
After graduating from George Washington University, Mary began her career working at The White House. From 1984-January 1989, she served as the Assistant to First Lady Nancy Reagan’s Press Secretary. Following this, she was at home raising a family and helping on a part-time basis with administrative tasks at InSite. Through the years her duties have expanded, and, as Vice President, she oversees the Administrative and Marketing divisions and works closely with the President and General Manager to develop and maintain the mission, vision and culture of the company.
Chris began his career at InSite at age 16 as a field intern. Assisting a project manager on several projects that first summer, Chris became aware of the organizational skills necessary in production. Right from the start, he began developing systems and processes to facilitate growth and streamline projects. Chris is responsible for transitioning InSite into a paperless company, introducing CRM software to more efficiently manage production and bringing 3D modeling into our design process. In 2018, Chris was promoted to General Manager. Chris was named to Professional Remodeler Magazine’s “Forty Under 40” and interviewed by them for his innovation with virtual reality.
