SAS Builders

Ian is a Project Coordinator with SAS Builders & Development. He helps manage multiple development projects in the New River Valley. These range from mixed-use projects, student/professional housing, and single family homes. Upon graduation from Youngstown State University, Ian immediately enrolled in the Masters of Public Administration program at Virginia Tech. From connections made in that program he was introduced to SAS and began working as an intern. In April 2018 he was promoted to a full time position in which he currently serves. He is still new to the Building and HBA world but looks forward to many years of learning and growth. 
Ian was fortunate enough to have his now fiance move down to Virginia with him from Ohio. They currently live in Christiansburg with their two dogs Lilly & Cappy.
