Our Founder

Dan Dowdy is the founder of Built For The Trades. In his career, he has transitioned from technician to manager to the owner of S & D Plumbing, an extremely successful plumbing business. After transforming S & D Plumbing into a five-star, multimillion-dollar company, Dan discovered his passion for leadership. Now, he is ready to take his knowledge and use it to strengthen the trades industry. He recognizes the desire that many business owners have to build a business that can run without them, and he wants to help make that dream a reality for his clients.

Focused on Family

Dan is a family man with 4 beautiful children and an amazing wife of 16+ years. He loves spending his time outdoors with his family and is always on the hunt for new, exhilarating activities. Some of his favorite accomplishments include running the 48-mile Grand Canyon rim-to-rim-to-rim trail in one day, finishing 2 ironman competitions, and running multiple marathons and ultra-marathons. He enjoys pushing himself to the limit to see what he is capable of and he instills this dedication into his work.
