Meet Our March Training Class Graduates!

Please help us welcome the newest members of the Gotcha Covered family!

Michael Richters – Albuquerque/Santa Fe, New Mexico

Michael is originally from New England. He grew up on a farm raising cattle and growing corn, soybeans, and alfalfa. His work has taken him all over the world including Florida, Nebraska, Colorado, Canada, and Costa Rica. While living in Boulder, CO, Michael started a lavender farm and developed his own line of lavender products. After caring for his mother in Nebraska, Michael decided he was ready for his next big venture – starting his own Gotcha Covered in New Mexico!

Sergio Trenche and Karilie Encarnacion – Apollo Beach, Florida

Sergio actually joins Gotcha Covered as an installer turned owner! He and his wife, Karilie, are taking over the franchise location in Apollo Beach. Sergio was an installer before he began working for Gotcha Covered and quickly found his niche working with window treatments. Now, as a new owner, he and his wife plan to work the business together with him focusing on sales and installs and her running the office and showroom.

Sarah and Chad Wallace – Seattle, Washington

Sarah and Chad have always wanted to own a business together. Sarah has a background in social services and Chad has a background in shipping and trucking. These separate career paths have meant long hours and stressful days. When an opportunity presented itself to start a Gotcha Covered together, they knew they were ready to start a new chapter to their lives. Sarah plans to handle the sales and consultations and Chad will handle measurements and installations.

Welcome to our new additions! We are so excited to have you join our team!
