Meet The Team
Todd Best: Owner | President
Construction has always been instrumental in Todd’s life. Starting at a young age, each summer was spent on-site working for this father, Garry Best, who did commercial builds. Todd’s passion for building was evident early in life and he never doubted that one day he was going to own his own company. In 1994, Todd acquired his Red Seal in carpentry, and by the age of 27 had started Garry Best Design and Construction, which would later be shortened to Best Builders Ltd. In his spare time, Todd enjoys trips to Disneyland with his family and doing work on his hobby farm in Delta.
Brook Milne: Site Supervisor
Brook has been a part of the Best Builders team since 2013. He acquired his red seal in carpentry in 2013 and has been mastering his craft in the industry for the past ten years. When not at the job site, he spends his time biking, sailing and exploring the outdoors.
Steve Green: Site Supervisor
Steve started his carpentry apprenticeship in 1978 and acquired his red seal and inter-provincial in 1982. He worked largely in heavy commercial construction up to 1989, before moving over to single family residential projects. Steve has been with the Best Builders team since 2008. He’s a husband, a father of two young daughters, in his spare time he explores the great outdoors – enjoying activities such as mountaineering and hiking.
Evan Carruthers: Site Supervisor
Evan is a site supervisor with Best Builders, and has worked with us since 2013. His role in building your dream home is directing a team of carpenters as well as coordinating sub trades to build together, from excavation to final paint touch ups. On weekends you will never see Evan without his side-kick Australian Shepherd next to him. Feel free to check, he’ll be down a forest service road somewhere camping. Evan is often accused of working too hard (making the other guys look bad). He’s working on this, but it’s hard when you were born to TCOB (take care of business). Evan is a qualified carpenter of 15+ years, and received his red seal ticket through BCIT. First aid training is also essential, and Evan is one of the many Best Builders first aid responders.
Roger Lafreniere: Site Supervisor
Roger has over 32 years of experience in the building industry and has been working for Best Builders since 2009. He has a very active lifestyle, playing numerous team sports throughout the years. Currently, his latest passion is ice hockey. He believes that it is important to be involved in team sports, as that team mentality is crucial for building custom homes.
Matt Galpin: Project Manager
Matt began his career with us in 2009, starting as a labourer and working his way through the carpentry program at BCIT (and up the ladder at Best Builders). After becoming a red seal carpenter and completing his project management studies, he transitioned into his current Project Manager role. With a passion for home building and extensive knowledge of the industry, Matt is the man behind-the-scenes that gets work done. In his spare time, you can find Matt working on his summer cabin and enjoying the outdoors.
Allissa: Office Administrator
Allissa is our Office Administrator and has been with us since 2010. She does a little bit of everything but specializes in chasing down timesheets (and finding Todd). You can find her at the front desk, behind the scenes on photo shoots, and arranging the endless amounts of office paperwork. A strong believer in a good cup of tea, our office tea kettle is never cold. Outside of work, Allissa enjoys a good Netflix binge but can also be found meandering through farmer’s markets and side streets with her husband, Aron, looking for the best home-made treats and vintage furniture.
Jennifer Best: Owner | Operations Manager
Jennifer is co-owner of Best Builders and Todd’s wife. Since getting married in the early nineties, Jenn has assisted the company in various positions, most recently expanding her role into project management and Accounts Payable. In her free time, you can find Jenn riding her horse, going on off-road adventures and hanging out with her family.
