How he got here.....

Dave has been with Nova Basement Systems for over 20 years. Dave met Jim Nova his senior year at LaPorte High school. Nova was the building trades and woodshop instructor. Upon graduation Dave went to work that summer for Jim Nova as a laborer. He has worked at Nova ever since. Over the years, Dave started as a laborer and moved to crew chief in his second year of employment. Then in 2007 Dave was in charge of service, scheduling and servicing systems. In mid 2008, Dave was promoted to the Director of Operations. His responsibilities now include, managing all of our crews, service department and estimators. He reviews every job that comes into our office to look for potential problems.

Dave is not afraid to step up when and where needed. Occasionally you will see Dave running to do a service call, helping on a crew or out estimating jobs.  Dave has traveled to Connecticut twice. Each time was for different training. He also went to Grip-Tite in Nebraska for a management training seminar. Dave received employee of the year in 2001.

In 2006, Dave started Naughton Concrete Raising, which he owns and operates from his home on the weekends.

    Joanne S. of Middlebury, IN

    Customer Testimonial

              "We had Hollis come to our lake house for a possible mold problem in our crawlspace. No problem there but he left a packet with us, which included info about sunhouses. We thought that sounded good for our house in town, and it is! We liked the way Hollis explained things. Of course it sure helped that he is a Purdue Graduate! We really appreciated his honesty in telling us that nothing needed to be done at the lake house. My husband was VERY impressed with Dave, the man who installed our sunhouses. My husband says Dave did an excellent job, he was very neat and careful. He cleaned up the areas really well. He even washed the basement window for us."

    Sunhouse Transformation

    This Middlebury customer wanted a mold issue checked out.  As it turns out, thankfully they had no mold issues.  Hollis had dropped some literature off to the homeowners, and they decided to have us install some sunhouses instead.
