Our Founders

Evan Swift

Evan Swift, a cofounding member of Swift Builders, has established an infallible reputation with clients, design teams, and the subcontractor community for more than 10 years. Evan learned the framing trade upon being discharged from the United States Navy in 2004. This framing experience allowed him to gain employment with a large general contractor in Northern Colorado. The experience gleaned from being employed with a large general contractor for more than 10 years was invaluable. With advancing his career and employment opportunities in mind, Evan pursued a BS degree in Project Management from Colorado Technical University and followed that up by acquiring an MBA in Finance. Evan was previously employed as a Senior Project Manager for a general contractor performing roughly $200 Million in gross annual revenue. This large project experience allowed Evan to obtain the essential tools and experience necessary to successfully complete projects of all sizes and scopes. The need for a competent and qualified general contractor to better serve the Norther Colorado market remained prevalent, however, and it is with this fundamental inspiration Swift Builders was founded.

Derek Cohen
