We’re launching a new series to highlight some of our outstanding team members, those who strive to embody our core values day in and day out.
Greg Lewis, Construction Coordinator
On July 4th, Greg marked 38 years with Sebastian Construction Group, making him one of the few remaining employees (besides John Sebastian) to have worked with founder, George Sebastian. Answering an ad for a job with Sebastian led Greg from his hometown in Algonquin, Illinois to the great state of Texas.
Nearly four decades later, Greg continues to carry on George Sebastian’s legacy of fanatical attention to detail.
“George was phenomenal,” Greg shared.”He insisted that all wood siding or panels had to be installed with the grain in the same direction – up, because that’s how trees grow.”
Greg’s favorite part of the job harkens back to his early start as a carpenter: the physical installation of the product. Everyone who knows Greg knows that his passion is his work. His motto? “The only reason I work seven days a week is because there aren’t eight.”
Greg and his wife, Donna, have three children, Nicholas, Nathan and Savannah, and four grandchildren. When he does retire from Sebastian, he and Donna will move to “the forest”, their 20-acre Texas property to hike, backpack and camp full-time.
