Jim Hamilton headshot



After nearly 30 years in operations and 20 years consulting more than 300 residential plumbing, HVAC, and electrical service providers, Jim has developed a tremendous amount of industry knowledge. He has helped countless owners take their businesses to the next level and assisted more than 60 owners through the sale process over his career. While many would retire after a career like Jim’s, his passion for the industry and the people in it have kept him going.  Jim wears a number of hats, but his primary focus is to work with each of our companies within Founders Home Service Group to create and execute on their plan for success.



While growing up in and around a number of small family businesses focused on industries like electrical and plumbing, Seth developed a passion for what we do today at Founders Home Service Group. Seth has spent the last 10 years of his career working with family offices and Fortune 500 companies primarily focused on sourcing and acquiring private investments across a wide variety of industries. Seth recently spent 5 years in corporate finance at a global agribusiness company. During this time, he assisted the company’s senior leadership team in growing their investment portfolio while also overseeing a number of projects focused on driving growth to the company’s subsidiaries. At Founders Home Service Group, Seth focuses on developing the company’s acquisition and growth strategy while also working with current business owners to develop their ideal exit plan.
