Abel Figueroa | Owner & Sales
I’m proud of Artisan and it’s impressive to see how it grows every year. Before Artisan, I worked for Canon Business Solutions as a Sales Business Developer. It was a terrific experience but when my entrepreneurial spirit started waking up, I started a small business of home remodeling which eventually led to new home construction. Though I learned tons, I also learned that specializing in one or two areas of construction is a lot more rewarding, thus why I chose roofing. It’s great meeting new prospects daily and watching happy customers react to their new roof every single time. It also feels terrific knowing that my personal name and Artisan’s has developed an impressive reputation in Wake County. In my free time I enjoy boating, traveling, playing pool, spending time with my family & best buddy (my Rottweiler).
Jessica Figueroa | Partner & Manager
My role as Office Manager means wearing many hats, from accounting to marketing to customer service, hiring and more! I graduated college with a degree in English, but soon after graduating, I entered the corporate world and recruited accounting professionals for many years. While working is sales, I learned the importance of professionalism, integrity and valuing every customer. Never did I imagine that the skills and experience I gained would lead me to join talents with my husband, Abel, someday. Together, we built Artisan from scratch; and I’m so proud of what it has become! In my free time, I love traveling, boating, reading and spending time with my family and our furry pets.
Jose M. Figueroa | Sales & Estimator
Becoming an archaeologist was the only thing I wanted to be growing up! But, instead of digging and examining dinosaur fossils, I graduated with a degree in Business. And today, I meet with Triangle area homeowners, to examine and help them find solutions to improve their roofing investment. I love meeting customers daily and learning so much about them and their families. Aside from that, I enjoy exploring the different areas of Wake and Durham County and viewing the difference Artisan has made in so many local neighborhoods. It’s a great feeling to exceed the expectations of so many homeowners every time. All this due to our EXCEPTIONAL roofing crew, office team and management, who delivers quality work every time!
At the end of the day, it’s very easy going home to my family and my Boxer, Bane. There, a long dog walk and coaching my daughter’s volleyball team awaits me every night!
Amy McCord | Office Administrator
I love animals! And, becoming a professional equestrian seemed like the perfect job to me – growing up! I didn’t end up galloping on or training beautiful horses, but I did end up attending UNCC, and currently working for Artisan as their Office Administrator. It’s awesome that I work for a group of people who are full of positive energy and who genuinely care about the customers we work with. I’ve learned that we all have the common goal of striving to deliver the best results with the best quality of customer service every time. My role is important at Artisan. And, I’m most proud of my attention to detail and ability to communicate effectively with customers. But what I’m most proud of is…how many times my name has come up in positive online reviews! Working at Artisan is great! But, at the end of the day and on weekends, I love attending concerts, going on trips, craft projects and playing with my four-legged buddy Marley!
