Aaron P. Lautaret formed the company based on his experience and knowledge gained while working on HVAC systems during his 4 years serving in the United States Navy. Upon his honorable discharge from the Navy he returned home to Anchorage and started immediately working in the commercial building maintenance arena. He has acquired extensive experience in maintenance, development, construction and tenant improvements for commercial properties since that time. Aaron now has well over 30 years' experience in overseeing and maintaining commercial properties. Due to a growing demand on Bruin Enterprises for larger scale tenant improvement jobs Aaron partnered with James A. Burke to form the general construction company Crestone General, LLC in 2006. In 2014 Aaron brought a long time employee and supervisor Donn H. Petty on as his partner in Bruin Enterprises. Also in 2014 Aaron partnered with Patrice Case and Evan Hall to form BHAG, LLC and purchased Florcraft Carpet One, a long time vendor of Bruin Enterprises.
Donn H. Petty joined Bruin Enterprises in 2005 as a maintenance engineer. Over the years he proved to be a highly knowledgeable, respectable and motivated employee and was quickly promoted to Maintenance Supervisor. Donn became a partner in Bruin Enterprises in August of 2014 and has helped to grow our client list with his hands on approach and attention to detail. Donn served for 11 years and was honorably discharged from the United States Air Force in 1978 and then worked in Civil Service for the next 27 years before retiring and coming to work for Bruin Enterprises. Donn brings over 40 years' experience to his role in Bruin Enterprises.
