The awards program was created and developed by the TAB Young Professionals Council.

The awards program provides industry education and networking for professional growth in the residential building industry, and helps program participants become better, more knowledgeable, and more productive employees.
Lynch started his company, Keechi Creek Builders, in 2007 with the slogan, “Your Official Resource for Improving Your Quality of Life.” Eight years later, Brandon was named the Greater Houston Builders Association’s Custom Builder of the Year. He is currently the Immediate Past Chair of the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA) Custom Builders Council and has previously held multiple leadership positions on the GHBA’s Board of Directors and as Charity Project Chairperson on the Remodelers Council. Brandon has consistently made great use of his time and talent to promote the home building industry and sees value in educating his clients about aging-in-place and green remodeling through community seminars and television segments. He establishes relationships with all his customers to build a home to improve their quality of life. His love for building and positive impact on his community has made him a deserving recipient of this award.
Roberts is the owner of Wyben Homes, a family owned custom/speculative home building company. Raymond has devoted himself to sustained and selfless volunteer work and has earned the respect of his peers. Not only is he on the Texas Panhandle Builders Association (TPBA) Board of Directors, but he serves on the Amarillo Habitat for Humanity Board, and TPBA committees including Community Outreach, Finance, Parade of Homes™, and Scholarship. Anytime the Community Outreach Committee starts a project for a family in need, Raymond is the first to help in any way that he can. His passion and work ethic were first noticed when he was unanimously voted TPBA’s “Builder of the Year” in 2016 and became one of the first TPBA Golden Hammer Club Members in 2017. Raymond Roberts, through his hard work and dedication, is very deserving of this award.
Summers is a proud resident of Corpus Christi, Texas for the past six years, where he has served as the Chief Operations Officer for Hogan Homes. In addition to his work at Hogan Homes, Trey became a member of the Coastal Bend Home Builders Association (CBJBA) and in 2014 joined the Board of Directors.

Currently Trey serves as the CBHBA’s Immediate Past President, Government Relations Committee Chair and sits on TAB’s Young Professionals Council as a director. He has done an outstanding job supporting the Corpus Christi Ronald McDonald House through the House’s annual Men Who Cook fundraising campaigns. Last year, when the historically damaging Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast, Trey selflessly took the time to put together a community cookout for people across the Coastal Bend area who were affected by the hurricane. He puts his employees and community first which has made him into a well-respected builder. Trey’s hard work and dedication to service, showcases his strong character which has earned him this award.
