Derek grew up in Western Canada with the strong work ethic exhibited by his Mom & Dad. Derek’s parents owned a construction company where he learned everything from foundations, framing, roofing and finishing and eventually ran his own crew.
Derek started Screens of Georgia in 1995 and became an exclusive distributor for Phantom screen products. Derek has been a pioneer in the retractable screen business, having personally installed thousands of screens himself, he brings a level of experience and knowledge to the industry that is hard to match.
Derek and his wife Leanne live in Canton, GA. and have 4 children. Their oldest son graduated from Georgia Tech and is an engineer for GM. Their daughter is working in the medical field and will be attending medical school. After almost being empty nesters, Derek and Leanne had the desire to become foster parents which lead to the adoption of their two sons. Hockey, soccer and other adventures are now back in play for Leanne and Derek!
Leanne grew up in metro Vancouver and prior to moving to the States in 1991 worked as an auditor for the Alberta Treasury Department and part time for an accounting firm. Aside from family, Leanne misses the snow-capped mountains of BC and the magical Northern Lights dancing across the sky, not missed, the long frigid winters. Georgia fireflies have become an anticipated event each year.
Since the conception of Screens of Georgia in 1995 and of as one of the co-owners, Leanne oversees most of the office tasks including accounting, purchasing, inventory and the occasional third hand on installs.
Leanne and Derek, along with three of their children, live in Canton, GA. Their oldest son is in the workforce and their daughter works in the medical field while getting ready to attend medical school. Leanne and Derek have a soft spot for little children and after fostering 2 “lil dudes” for more than 3 years, adopted them in 2014.
