Chief Estimator

David Pulley

David likes to say that he was born into construction. With his father a General Contractor, David grew up in an ongoing construction project and started helping out on job sites at the age of ten. By twelve, David was running the saw, and he learned a great deal about how things get put together in those early years. In high school David took drafting classes and interned with an architectural firm. After realizing that architecture wasn’t for him, David looked around in other industries, until he found himself inadvertently supervising the construction of his family’s new home. While working and going to school, David also oversaw every level of the home’s development. This experience was a turning point for David, and his future career became clear.

After managing his family’s construction, David joined his father’s company running everything from payroll to estimations, as well as performing hands-on work at the job sites. During this time, he also participated in a national student competition where his team won first place. Although the competition left him hospitalized with the flu, David’s success drew the attention of a large construction firm, and he ultimately and successfully negotiated for an internship right from his hospital bed!

Seven weeks into his internship, David was invited to join the company full-time as a junior estimator, where he remained for the next four years. Following that, he became an estimator, then senior estimator at another contractor before joining PNG Builders as Chief Estimator in 2015.

David feels that he couldn’t be happier now that he’s landed at PNG. He is committed to his team and is grateful for leadership that supports new endeavors and big ideas. He’s proud to be part of a company family that brings together a diversity of strengths and backgrounds. David views himself as the realist of the team, though he also strives to bring humor and fun to the work he does. His priority is looking out for everyone else’s best interests.

David is passionate about his family. He resides in Santa Fe Springs with his wife, son, and daughter, as well as their two dogs. In his free time, David enjoys traveling with his family, ensuring that his children experience a wide variety of cultures and ways of living. The Pulley family has travelled to fourteen countries and counting, where they enjoy doing service projects and other philanthropic work.
