Chief Operating Officer
With his expertise in finance architectural design, and strategic planning, Trey Heard embodies the ideal qualities of a COO. Since joining West Village GC in 2014, Trey has transformed the efficacy of project operation with impressive process improvements and a winning style of building and retaining professional relationships.
Born and raised in Texas, it was only natural that Trey developed a love for the outdoors. After studying Landscape Architecture at Arizona State University, he apprenticed at a design/build company that specialized in high-end landscaping while also learning the art of bidding and estimating. While still active in landscape architecture, he earned a degree in Economics from the University of Nevada and soon headed east to pursue a Ph.D. and a new career in NYC’s financial arena. It wasn’t long, however, before he missed the teamwork and creativity that construction has to offer. Luckily, a downsizing at his finance company presented a serendipitous opportunity, leading him back to design/build and his eventually to West Village GC.
Trey feels privileged to contribute to the building process on the front end and help a project set sail. He is proud of the alliances he has maintained with such highly regarded firms as David Scott Interiors and Fox-Nahem. In addition to its stringent standards for accuracy and quality, he believes that what truly sets West Village GC apart from its competitors is the level of care his colleagues deliver to each project. Their uncompromised dedication heightens Trey’s own performance on a daily basis.
True to his Texas roots, Trey enjoys the smoker and grill which sit year-round on the deck space of his Brooklyn apartment. With the blessing of his neighbors – a.k.a. the local fire department – it’s a tradition he enjoys with his wife and two children.
