Our Team



Bob was a corporate CPA for 30 years who desired to run a high performing business of his own in “retirement”. Bob has owned and operated Southwest Gutter, and now SWIS, since 2017 and is proud of the team we’ve built to solve your water and ice issues at your roofline.





Kee is our primary installer of Gutter Helmet, a task he attacks with a great attention to detail. Prior to joining SWIS in early 2020, Kee shared his talents with another local contractor. In fact, during his career he installed the wood burning stove in our personal home years before we bought our home! When he puts his drill down, Kee is a skilled disc golfer and spends time with his family camping and exploring our beautiful area.


Cam is a versatile member of our team who installs all products we offer and currently performs much of our service work. As a result, he excels at being resourceful as he solves some of our most challenging issues. Cam is a former wildland firefighter and electrician’s apprentice. Cam loves spending time with his family and their two dogs!


Katie manages our office and does an outstanding job offering our clients quality service from the first connection to completed project and beyond! As our SWIS quarterback for several years, she keeps us in line and focused on the tasks at hand and even knows the right time to call an audible! Katie loves riding ATV’s and being active while exploring our area. Katie is a focused mom and wife for the men in her life and loves spending time with her extended family!



Don’s role has been quickly growing from Shop Assistant to Customer Service Extraordinaire and is now even dabbling in IT support…  needless to say, he has many talents and this small business plans to leverage them all!  Don spends his spare time hiking, rock climbing, snowboarding and other activities which nurture his yearning for challenge and enjoyment of the area we get to call home.

“We are very pleased with our new gutters and Gutter Helmet®. The estimation process was very easy and fast. We received an estimate quickly after Bob looked at our space. Install happened very soon after we accepted Bob's proposal. Aaron and Hunter, the installers, were fantastic! They were on time, very polite, helpful, efficient, clean and knowledgeable. Highly recommend Southwest Water & Ice Solutions and we are so grateful for a wonderful install team. ”
