Biography of Ray Burke for UAMCC
Vice Presidential Nominee
Hello and thanks for taking your valuable time to learn a little more about me. As many of you know, I was a real estate developer before the "Crash of '09", and the bursting bubble of the housing market was life changing for me! For 20 years, all I had done was real estate. I literally started over from nothing, using a Homelite Pressure Washer from Home Depot (maybe it was a Troy-bilt) and a used pool pump as a softwash rig.
As my business grew I was able to incorporate my wife into the Spray Wash family after my second year in business. Six years later, my wife Tonya Burke, and I have built a very comfortable business.We have a total of three full time crews, have expanded into hood cleaning, and have created 10 jobs for employees...jobs that did not exist 6 years ago!
I will never forget my very humble beginnings, and how vital mentorship and professional associations were (and still are) to my success. One of the main reasons I choose to be active in the UAMCC is to hopefully make a positive impact on members lives, to share ideas, to help inspire them. I will always strive to make myself available for questions, advice, or even just a friendly ear to listen to your issues.
I would greatly appreciate your support in the upcoming 2016 UAMCC elections.
