Hitting the Big Time
In the past 12 years, Lee Valenzuela and his two partners largely took over California’s Central Valley. Valenzuela has fast-tracked it to National Plasterers Council Chairman, taking the spot just five years after joining the board.
Lee Valenzuela doesn’t mess around.
This holds true even when it comes to sports. He loves the Los Angeles Dodgers — so much so that, several times a year, he and his wife Tina drive 4 hours to L.A. to see them play.
For the most part, it’s about family: His love of the team springs largely from childhood memories of riding down to visit relatives in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley and going to Dodger Stadium.
His career also started with family, when he began working for his uncle’s plaster company in high school. He knew from the start that he wanted to move up. And he did, by joining with two coworkers to start New Image Pool Interiors in Clovis, Calif. In 12 years, it has become possibly the largest plastering firm in the state’s Central Valley.
And, as of February, Valenzuela takes the reins as chairman of the National Plasterers Council, just a few years after joining the board.
