"Gordon Rush was building houses in Gig Harbor before the town had so much as a McDonald’s. Thirty-five years later, the CEO and founder of the Rush Cos. oversees a company with projects in all aspects of commercial and residential construction.
Rush launched his company, as many do, out of necessity. He was working as a commercial fisherman when he and his wife, Traci, needed a place to live. So he built a house. Then he built another one, and another, and he just kept going."
