Meet The Team
Born in south Georgia, and raised in Texas, Chad Hall has deep family roots in the construction industry. His grandfather was a concrete contractor. His dad was a painting contractor. With construction is in his blood, it’s no surprise that he thrives in the building industry. In the early 2000s, he founded, operated and sold a very successful drywall company that serviced multifamily projects nationwide. Upon the sale of his company, Chad once again was drawn to the building industry, this time in cabinet distribution. After working with a couple of Houston-based cabinet distributors, Chad’s commitment to his customers and desire to provide them with a higher standard of service led to the idea of Builders Alliance LLC. Chad currently lives in the Houston area with his wife and three boys and manages the corporate headquarters in Houston. Chad is proud of the level of success that everyone has worked so hard to accomplish here at Builders Alliance LLC, and he looks forward to an even more amazing future.
After graduating from Texas A&M University in 2011, Trent Smith returned home to Houston, where he worked in outside sales for a building materials distribution company. It was there he developed a working knowledge of cabinets, distribution and the building industry. In working first-hand with builders on a daily basis, he realized the need for a cabinet company that could provide the building industry with a higher level of execution, a need for a cabinet company with unrivaled service and a need for a company that cared as much about the success of his customers as he did. There was a need for Builders Alliance LLC. Since the creation of Builders Alliance LLC, Trent has personally worked in just about every role possible. His willingness to do anything to make Builders Alliance LLC successful has served a vital role. It’s no surprise that when Builders Alliance LLC expanded into the Dallas-Fort Worth market, Trent and his wife, Ashton, packed up their lives, put their home on the market, and relocated to the DFW area. He currently lives in Azle, where he manages the Dallas-Fort Worth branch.
VICE PRESIDENT OF OPERATIONS
For more than 30 years, Larry Acevedo has personally worked in every aspect of the cabinet industry, from manufacturing and installing cabinets, to managing the ordering, installation and service of thousands of homes per year. Larry was practically born into the cabinet industry. The Acevedo family owned and operated a custom cabinet shop in Southern California. By age 16, he was installing cabinets after school to earn spending money. Larry continued installing cabinets for more than 20 years, even after the sale of the family business to one of the largest cabinet manufacturers in the United States. After installing, Larry was recruited into management for a major manufacturer. It was during that time that he was transferred to Houston to manage one of the company’s larger markets. During the recession of 2007, Larry decided to make a career move and transitioned into the distribution aspect of the cabinet industry. It was at this point in his career where he met his current business partners. Larry, his wife, Denise, and their daughters, Larin and Laurinda, live in the San Marcos area, where he currently manages the branch that serves the Austin, Killeen, San Marcos and San Antonio markets. Larry’s experience, technical expertise and work ethic make him the go-to person for all things cabinets at Builders Alliance LLC.
