Tod’s work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit were evident from his very first job working in the parts department of a local farm equipment store. Eventually, his career path would lead to the construction industry where he began working as a general laborer. It didn’t take long before his hard work was noticed, and he was eventually offered a foreman position. In this role, Tod was responsible for managing large, underground construction projects. Eventually, his entrepreneurial drive would lead him to own five trucks and managing several drivers.
Never one to let a good idea go to waste, Tod used his experience in underground construction management and trucking to start a new business venture with his family. In 1999, Tod founded S&S Directional Boring, with Austin as a partner.
In addition to being committed to his career, Tod is also active in his community. He served as township trustee for 13 years, where he helped spearhead road repairs and improvements. Today, he stays busy as a hobby rancher. His ranch, Belted Galloway Cattle, raises cattle for meat and is also home to mini donkeys. In whatever free time he has left at the end of the day, Tod enjoys traveling, spending time with his grandkids, reading, and watching old westerns and black and white movies.
