AUSTIN - While attending Texas State University in 2014 he sure didn’t know that his estimating professor would become his boss. You never know what life is going to put in front of you. Glenn Roblin is the senior estimator and purchasing manager for Woolsey Design Build. He’s been with the company for a little over four years now. “Eli Woolsey, the owner of the company was one of my professors when I was getting my undergraduate degree.”


    Roblin remembers toward the end of the semester Mr. Woolsey asking if anybody would like to do a job site tour, office tour and shadow him for the day, to just shoot him an email. “I was the only one who took him up on that offer. I ended up hanging out with him for a couple of days and shadowed him and saw what the whole operation was about.” Now Roblin is doing all the estimating and material purchasing.
    Working full time and going to school in the evenings, working on his master’s in business administration at Texas State. He enjoys the financial side of the business. His advice for those who are entering the construction industry is “For them to get out and start working in the field and working for construction companies as soon as they can.”
    Roblin was born in Dallas in 1998. This 28-year old sure has an active lifestyle. As a member of the New Braunfels Elks Lodge he volunteers once every couple months to help out. One enjoyable hobby of his is motorcycle riding. It’s actually the sport called observed trials. “It’s a small pretty unknown sport, so it’s a pretty close-knit community with everybody that rides.”
    Congratulations are in order as well because him and his fiancé got engaged this past summer. They have a yorkie chihuahua mix, named Che. Che? “I don’t know where the name came from. It was my fiancés dog she got maybe three or four months before we started dating.” Oh, Che.
    On workdays Roblin enjoys putting together the budgets for projects. So, if he’s not volunteering, riding his motorcycle or spending time with his fiancé, he’s with his team. Roblin mentions a non-profit project the team is working on in Seguin for the Seguin Oaks Lodge. There had been a fire a few years ago and Woolsey Design Build helped them get their building going. These projects, along with others, are what Roblin is proud to be a part of.
