Travis grew up in the lumber industry following in the footsteps of his great grandfather, grandparents, father, uncle and cousins. It is safe to say the lumber industry is in his blood. In his younger years Travis worked after schools and summer holidays in the yard learning the business from the bottom up. After attending College Travis drove picker trucks and renovated the current store location from what was Synder’s Auto Wrecking to what you see today. Once in the new location Travis brought the store up to date by implementing the use of a point of sale computer system. Travis then took basic and intermediate estimating courses alongside Jason in Winnipeg and has since then added well over a decade of estimating, site measurement and management experience to his skillset. Although Travis spends more time in his office than the sales floor these days he is a big believer in a hands on approach always working to create a better customer experience.
When away from work Travis serves as vice chairman if the Tirol Gas Co-Op, head coach of the Tilley Tigers initiation hockey teams, is a member of Brooks fish & Game. Travis enjoys hunting, camping and any other activities he can do with his wife and four kids.
Rochelle started with Lutes Timber Mart in 2009, growing up in a construction family she took to her new team immediately. Rochelle has completed both basic, and intermediate estimating courses with the WRLA and with several years of estimating under her belt you can be confident in her ability to give you an accurate cost on your next project. Rochelle also looks after the majority of hardware purchasing and the book keeping when needed. From mixing paint to estimating Rochelle has all angles covered!
Rochelle’s time away from work is usually spent playing slow pitch, basketball and “supermom” to her son.
Brian has been with Lutes Timber Mart since 2015. Brian is a go to team member always happy to help customers, place special orders or ensure the show room and retail shelving are looking their best. Brian is also first to jump in a delivery truck when the extra hands are needed get the products to site on time.
Away from work Brian likes to spend time with the family, BBQ, listen to some classic rock, take the family dog for walks.
Jason came to Lutes Timber Mart in 2003. Starting out as a yard hand and delivery driver then working his way to yard foreman. Somewhere along the way he was convinced to get his class 3 license and was also responsible for running the picker trucks. Jason then made his way inside to a sales position and has completed his basic and intermediate WRLA estimating courses. With over a 14 years of estimating and site measurement experience Jason can help you tackle projects of any size and complexity with ease.
Away from work Jason is heavily involved in the local baseball community. Jason took the lead in fundraising for the Brooks Regional Ballpark, played a key role in bringing the WMBL Brooks Bombers to town and still sits as President for them. Jason has a passion for getting kids into sports and has coached youth baseball and soccer for many years. Jason also volunteers his time for the Brooks Bandits home games, operating the video board and broadcasting booth. If that wasn’t enough to keep a guy busy Jason also lends a hand when “told” to do so at his wife’s dog rescue, Cleo’s Karma Canine Rescue.
