As the son of the company founder, a lot was assumed about David Sellers and he knew what those assumptions would be.
“Anytime you’re coming in as a son or a daughter of a founder, I think people are looking at it like you got a free pass,” said Sellers, who followed his father, company founder David R. Sellers, as President and CEO of LGE Design Build. “If you pay attention to that, you’re not going to be able to do anything. I would rather focus on the things that I knew that I wanted to do to be successful in the business.
“I’ve always put in as many or even more hours than anybody here. I always wanted people to see that I am working really hard and I’ve always wanted to treat people really fair. And after a while, any of the people that doubted me saw that I was in my position for a good reason.”
