He is a Georgia native with strong ties to the construction industry and has been involved with construction projects of all kinds here in Georgia and as far away as Latin America and the Middle East. Allan is always pushing technology to do more for the construction industry and his passion for excellence led him to create BidAlert.com. Allan’s love for adventure and all-things technical began with flying airplanes when he was 13 years old. He has been flying ever since.
