Meet the Team
Rafael Bayona - General Manager
Rafael (Raf) has been in the fence industry for over 23 years. He started as a yard guy helping customers, loading trucks, and working with the elite in distribution. He worked his way through the company and was moved into the manufacturing field where he learned how to run CNC machines, welding and filling chain-link gates, worked in the woodshop, processed work orders, and handled day to day commitments of orders. From there he moved into the sales field and worked as the “Counter Guy” for 13 years. During this tenure he worked hand-in-hand with the everyday fence guy, heard both their pains and stories of success in the industry. He also learned market share, competitors, and the value of margins vs. cost of goods. Rafael then moved into a managerial position gauging in the dealings of personnel and managing/teaching what he has learned and funneled it to his team. This helped make his peers stronger and more confident in their everyday tasks and relationships with customers in the industry. Rafael loves to spend time with his fiancé, his loving kids and pets, and on his downtime loves to produce music, Marvel/DC, and watching football.
