Our Leadership

Shawn Roland

Shawn's cat staring into the camera

Shawn, fueled by a desire for accessible housing, founded Burl in 2019. Leveraging his financial background, he set out to disrupt the construction industry. A frustrating encounter with a mold mitigation company ignited his passion for building a company built on genuine care and a top-notch team.

Starting with small handyman jobs, Burl’s impact was immediate. This success emboldened Shawn to leave his finance career and fully dedicate himself to the mission of affordable housing.

An alumnus of Leadership Eastside and a former Commissioner on the Human Services Commission in Redmond, Shawn’s commitment to community and social good runs deep. His story, marked by transformation and dedication, is a testament to the power of individual action to create positive change in both personal lives and communities.

Marco Lindsay

With over two decades of experience in residential and commercial construction, Marco brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to Burl. Having honed his skills as both a carpenter and a general contractor, Marco is passionate about contributing to Shawn’s vision of building more affordable housing in our region along with his own desire to provide aging-in-place living solutions.

Marco is equally driven to foster a supportive work environment, particularly for minorities who are often underrepresented in the construction industry.

Throughout his career, Marco has tackled a wide range of projects, from high-end finishes and custom cabinetry to metalwork installation and framing. His experience encompasses overseeing all aspects of the construction process, ensuring a smooth and successful project from start to finish.

Understanding the importance of trust when working in people’s homes, Marco prioritizes finding the right solution for each project while maintaining efficiency and minimizing disruption to the homeowner’s daily life.

Better Together

Joining forces in 2020, Marco’s two decades of construction expertise, encompassing both carpentry and general contracting, proved to be a turning point for Burl. His knowledge and entrepreneurial spirit significantly bolstered the company’s ability to deliver top-notch work.

This collaboration thrives on their complementary strengths. Marco’s focus on craftsmanship and meticulous execution perfectly complements Shawn’s dedication to client relationships, business acumen, and fostering a supportive team environment.

While their individual styles in client interaction and business management differ, their partnership operates seamlessly. Marco trusts Shawn’s leadership in these areas, while Shawn relies on Marco’s deep construction knowledge to ensure every project’s success. This powerful teamwork has been instrumental in propelling Burl on a successful trajectory.
