Meet the Owners
Shane Gifford, a native of Colorado, was first exposed to the construction world at a young age by his grandfather. He began his career 19 years ago in the construction industry. Shane has worked for companies such as Cornella Brothers Excavating and Tezak Heavy Equipment. He has also owned his own semi-truck and driven as an independent truck driver. The purchase of Yard Crafters, LLC in May of 2005 was a dream come true for Shane. He was a driving force in the purchase of TSN Properties, now called Yard Crafters Maintenance Division in May of 2009. A hard worker and a wise businessman make Shane an important part of the company. Outside of work, Shane spends time with his family and enjoys the outdoors.
Ryan Cornella is also a native of Colorado. He has been in the construction business for 20 years. Ryan began his career at Cornella Brothers Excavating where he started as an Operator and eventually worked his way up to a Project Supervisor. He stayed with Cornella Brothers until May of 2005. Ryan and Shane purchased Javernick Landscaping, now called Yard Crafters, LLC in May of 2005. His love for making a yard look beautiful helped in the decision making of buying the second company, TSN Properties, now called Yard Crafters Maintenance Division in May of 2009. Ryan is a key component to the success of the business because of his strong work ethic and dedication. When Ryan is not working, he can be found spending time with his wife and two sons or enjoying the outdoors.
