BY Theresa Ulrich On

Greg Ulrich, Founder and President of KGT Builders, has been named the 2015 “Remodeler of the Year” by the Collier Building Industry Association (CBIA). The award was presented to Ulrich during the CBIA annual holiday party.

This marks the second time KGT Builders has been honored by the CBIA in 2015. KGT was also recognized for Excellence in Space Renovation by a Remodeler at this year’s Sand Dollar Awards held in September.

Ulrich is a Philadelphia native who moved to Naples in 2001. With an extensive background in construction and two years of Architectural College, Ulrich founded KGT Builders in 2005 after nearly 45 years of work experience with major builders including Ulrich Homes in Pennsylvania, Centex Homes, Arthur Rutenberg Homes, and Toll Brothers.

Ulrich specializes in architecture drafting and design, carpentry, cabinetry, new home construction, quality control and project management. He and his wife, Theresa, have combined their knowledge and experience to create a remodeling firm dedicated to their customers.

“We offer the best products, services, and experiences for each and every client we work with,” say Ulrich.

Ulrich served as the CBIA President in 2014 and continues to contribute today as a member of the CBIA leadership team.  Under Ulrich’s leadership last year, CBIA membership base grew by 20%, ranking CBIA fourth in their size category throughout the country. During his Presidential reign, Ulrich also led the effort to ensure support from the Collier County Commissions to roll-back the impact fee collection from permit to time of certificate of occupancy, saving builders much needed funds they could instead put towards building.

“Through his quiet deliberation, absolute commitment and focus on improving the regulatory environment in Collier County, Greg has earned the respect of members and staff alike at the CBIA,” says Kathy Curatolo, Executive Vice President of the CBIA. “It was his vision and leadership that brought together a task force focused on hiring a consulting/government affairs liaison to work with our leadership team on local issues affecting our industry. We are truly lucky to have the know-how, experience and drive Greg brings to our association.”

“I am honored to have received such an esteemed recognition from the CBIA,” says Greg Ulrich. “This association focuses on the importance of this industry and continuously helps its members make their businesses more efficient, effective and profitable. It has been a pleasure to serve on the CBIA leadership team over the years and an honor to receive their recognition.”
