Tanner JobgenDistribution Sales Manager
Tanner grew up on a ranch near Kadoka, SD where he learned his values that carried over into his professional career later in life. Tanner has been an entrepreneur most of his career starting off as a real estate agent. While working as a real estate agent, he saw the monetary value a freshly cleaned carpet added to the homes sale price, which led him to start a carpet cleaning franchise serving multiple cities in North and South Dakota. After successfully growing the carpet cleaning company into a profitable business, he sold it to move closer to home. In 2012, he launched Surface Innovations, which specialized in all forms of decorative concrete flooring and concrete countertop systems.
Tanner has completed training in solar electric design and installation from Solar Energy International, the premier solar training facility in the United States. Tanner enjoys spending time with his daughter and significant other and enjoys hunting on the family ranch in western South Dakota.
