"Gus" Gust founded Paragon Drywall in 1973, in partnership with Helmut Jedan. They ran the business successfully together until Helmut's retirement in the late 80s. Since then, Gus has continued with his experienced team of estimators, foreman, and contractors.
In 2000, Gus' son Kevin returned to the business, having worked on the tools in his youth, and began to assume greater control of operations. Following Gus' retirement in 2013, Kevin became Chief Operating Officer. Gus continues to participate in a consultative role.
