- READ WAYNE'S BIO
Wayne started his career in the construction industry in 1989, leasing construction trailers while working for one of the largest modular companies in the country. Leveraging his knowledge and relationships, Wayne co-founded the Warrior Group. His leadership and foresight was instrumental in the growth of the largest minority modular company in the country. At one time, the firm was ranked the 32nd largest MBE firm in the U.S. with sales exceeding $130 million. After leaving the Warrior Group in 2010, Wayne stayed busy consulting, and in 2013 he formed Skystone Roofing Group with Chris Zazo, a veteran of the commercial roofing industry. Wayne quickly realized the commercial roofing industry lacked a national MBE roofing presence. He quickly pivoted, and by 2015 he and Zazo rebranded the company by creating and certifying Diversity Resources Group (DRG) as a national MBE roofing firm. Wayne, Chris and Bert have combined their years of construction experience to form a value added partner for its client base. DRG has also partnered with MetLoop to offer an address-specific precision weather technology in addition to partnering with Dallas-based Speetra to offer a cutting-edge customer engagement software.
