Possert Construction’s History

Possert Construction has been provided the highest quality workmanship and customer service standards for over six decades. Possert Construction was established in 1955 by founder Mark Possert. He had a vision of delivering the best roofing and roofing repair services in the state of Ohio.

After 34 years, Mark Possert retired from construction and listed his business for sale. As a top roofing contractor in Dayton, Mark wasn’t surprised by the level of interest generated by the announcement.

Mark could have taken the first offer, but he had a different agenda: Mark wanted to sell the business to someone he trusted to continue the Possert legacy. After a few months, he found the right individual.

Mark Possert sold Possert Construction to Ken Shooter, a Beavercreek native who had been in the construction industry for 20+ years, in the summer of 1989.

The Shooters Take Over Possert Construction

Ken Shooter ran Possert Construction while following the same core principles for 11 years, from 1989-2000. When it was time to retire, he decided to pass the business on to someone in his family, knowing he could trust them to carry on the Possert legacy.

Ken retired from the construction industry in 2000, selling Possert to his two sons Greg and Gary Shooter. The new ownership transition went smoothly because Greg and Gary Shooter had already been working in the business for some time. Greg started in 1989 with Ken and Gary joined in 1993.

Today, the Shooter brother partnership continues to work well. The pair knows how to leverage each other’s strengths while keeping each other accountable.

Since 2000, Possert Construction has purchased five SERVPRO franchise locations in the Dayton area. Possert purchased two franchises in 2013 and three more in 2015. The purchase of the five SERVPRO franchises has given Possert the ability to handle larger insurance claims with a new pool of resources.
