AUSTIN - Born July 17, 1978 in Houston, TX, Vogel grew up in the construction industry.







    “I got involved in construction at the age of 15 working under my father as an assistant superintendent in multi-family construction building apartment complexes in Houston coordinating rough and final punch work with subcontractors.  My dad has been and still is my mentor.  He taught me so much.
    “After high school, I decided to attend college in San Marcos at Texas State University where I earned a Bachelor Degree in Construction Management.
    “Alpha hired directly out of college.  I went through a vigorous training program before starting my position there in estimating/sales in their San Antonio office.  It’s been great.  I enjoy meeting and interacting with new and old clients.”
    One of the first to graduate from the Alpha University Program, Vogel joined the team of Alpha Insulation and Waterproofing Inc. in 2004.  A program was started to train and fuel future organic growth. Just four short years later, Vogel received Top Sales Producer of the year award.
    Vogel has been a part of the Alpha team for 14 years.  He spent his first 10  years in San Antonio and has been in the Austin area for the past four years.  Today at age 39, Vogel is the director of sales and estimating for the Austin market. 
    “I’m a pretty simple guy.  When I’m not working, I enjoy fishing.  Maybe someday, you’ll see one of my big catches in the paper.  I’m single.  I have not pets and no kids. But I do have a niece, Peyton, who is 9 and a nephew, Brayden who is 7 that I enjoy spending time with when I get to see them.  They live in Cypress so I don’t get to see them as much as I would like.
    “When I can’t get to the coast, I like to go hunting.  What guy doesn’t?  I also enjoy, really enjoy, riding my mountain and dirt bikes.  It really gets the adrenalin flowing.  I’m also a big fan of working out.  I work out a lot every chance I get.
    “I own my own house in Round Rock.  I’ve been there four years so that can keep a single guy busy.  Fortunately, I have no outside projects in the works at the moment, but I’m a guy so that can change with a flip of a switch.
    “When I retire, I would like to move near the coast.  Preferably somewhere in Florida.” -cmw
