MEET OUR MANAGEMENT TEAM
Jesse Carpenter is the co-owner and founder of Gutter Boys Exterior Cleaning. He’s gone from the guy cleaning the gutters and answering the phone to the guy that oversees the people cleaning the gutters and answering the phones. He’s the Gutter Cleaning Big Kahuna, if you will. Outside of life from the gutter cleaning world, Jesse spends a lot of time keeping up with his two daughters and twin toddler sons. He loves the Cincinnati Bengals, UK Wildcat basketball, Ohio State football, and playing board games. He is also a musician that leads worship at his church.
Grant Dawson joined the Gutter Boys team in 2013 as the office manager and co-owner. He is the last person you would ever want doing your gutter cleaning, as he is afraid of heights and isn’t very good with his hands. However, he loves spreadsheets, accounting, and creating efficient systems, which makes him an important cog in the Gutter Boy wheel. When he’s not putting together a new PowerPoint training, he loves playing and watching sports. Grant is the father of three “tweens”, including twins. He is also the founder and director of Reset Ministries, a local non-profit which Gutter Boys strongly supports.
Lauren Burtnett is the Executive Manager of the Gutter Boys. In other words, she’s the one that makes sure everything is done right and on time. She recently set the world record for amount of work accomplished in one day, so if you talk to her on the phone you may have to ask her to slow down. Besides being uber-productive, Lauren likes spending time with her two boys–especially if it involves some kind of outdoor, thrill-seeking activity. Lauren also likes reading (fast, of course) and has a heart to help people in recovery.
Barry Goins is the Repair & Installation Manager for Gutter Boys. His dad owned a roof and gutter company, so Barry naturally became an expert in the field. He even had his own roofing and gutter business, but couldn’t resist the urge to become an actual Gutter Boy. You’d be hard pressed to find somebody in the Greater Cincinnati area who knows more about box gutters than Barry, but he’s not a one-trick pony. He also is an awesome dad to three kids and is a movie buff. He likes working on cars too, but his real dream is to one day be Mr. January in the Gutter Boys calendar.
Jimmy Cantwell is the head of the Pressure Washing division. Even as a young child, he couldn’t stand it when something was dirty, and was often found sneaking out of bed to clean the windows or microwave. Thankfully, that love of clean translates to a beautiful home for you when you call the Gutter Boys. When he’s not getting homes squeaky clean, he loves going on international mission trips, playing guitar, and reading comic books. He dreams of someday having 11 kids in order to field his own family football team.
