Amy Harper started working at the Fox Valley Builders Exchange in February 2000, shortly after the launch of Wisconsin’s first On-Line Planroom. She was recruited by her parents, Linda & David Voster to help at the exchange due to the exploding popularity of the On-Line Planroom.
After two short years of the Fox Valley Builders Exchanges’ online planroom success they quickly learned that there was growing need for a statewide internet planroom, and that was when Builders Exchange of WI was incorporated. Other Exchanges in WI became affiliated with BXWI and Amy worked closely with them to make sure all projects possible were being reported quickly and accurately.
After attending Reporter Training from BXNet, She went on to become CIT certified by Clemson University. Being a Construction Industry Technician helped her in the Managing Editor position.
Amy enjoys the adventures of owning the Builders Exchange having recently purchased the business from her mother and is excited for where that takes her.
