Graybach was founded in 2007 by a team of ambitious entrepreneurs who shared a common goal of quality. While working on various construction projects, the founders noticed that the construction world operates unlike many other service industries in that customers are all too often subjected to unreliable, dishonest, and unqualified contractors. Graybach has been established as an alternative to this trend and offers quality general contracting and construction services that focus on the customers’ needs, budgets and schedules. Our customers appreciate our honest, attentive and forthright approach to construction.

Before coming to Graybach, Robbie worked for Fifth Third…and was actually introduced to Graybach by a colleague there.

Erica GraceOperations Manager

About Erica:

I was born in a small town, taught the fear of Jesus in a small town…. Used to daydream in a small town in Indiana, before moving to Morehead State University. Well I moved down there at the age of 18, blew the boys away, was more than they’d seen. She said I dig you baby, but I gotta keep moving on, to Cincinnati.

When Graybach was founded in 2007, she left Toyota and began her new career at Graybach.

About Cari:

Cari came to Graybach in June 2018 with a background in construction, primarily HVAC and Mechanical Contracting. Her previous experience in accounting, HR and office coordination readied her for her position here at Graybach. “I love our group dynamic and the culture here!”

In Her Free Time:

She loves working with her hands and being creative. She loves trying new things and keeping herself busy – Cari’s favorite place to be is in the garage in the summer, covered in paint and sawdust and working on the latest project. When she don’t have a paintbrush or a power tool in hand, she loves to spend time with her fiancé and three gentle giants: one yellow lab, one golden retriever and one black lab/border collie mix.

Fun Fact:

If you attended a Reds game between 2009 and 2013 and had the misfortune of not catching a t-shirt from the t-shirt cannon, Cari’s most likely to blame. She was the captain of that fun little branch of the promotions team. (Sorry, she really tried to get to everyone.)

Favorite Graybach Project:

Really any of the historic renovation projects we’ve done. It was Graybach’s portfolio of work that sparked her interest in the company enough to want to work here. She grew up in Clifton near OTR, and it’s those types of revitalization efforts that she wants to be involved in. It’s been utterly amazing to see how Cincinnati has changed in the past 10 years!

About Travis:

Hails proudly from the Hoosier state of Indiana where he grew up on a farm in a small town, about an hour west of Cincinnati.

Travis graduated from the school of hard knocks with a Master’s Degree.

Travis began his industry experience in Residential Construction over 15 years ago. He started as a laborer, then trained as a carpenter, then moved up to Field Superintendent specializing in new home community developments. He literally learned construction from the ground up, no pun intended. He has been involved in hundreds of construction projects to date and now specializes in restaurant construction.

Travis enjoys spending time with his wife and 2 sons. He coaches his sons in baseball and basketball and is a volunteer Cub Scout Den Leader. He likes being outside doing a variety of outdoor recreational activities.

Before learning construction, Travis used to engrave and set tombstones. You would be surprised to know how many people die of natural causes within a week of their birthday!

Travis’s favorite Graybach project is ZBGB in OTR. This stands out because of the historic architecture of OTR mixed with the modern trends and styles.
