What We Stand For


The Founders

Connor and Ian are U.S. Army Engineer veterans who have seen some of the best and worst that the construction industry has to offer.

Throughout their experience in military construction, they developed a strong admiration and respect for what an effective contractor brings to the table.

They dove in headfirst- Gaining as much hands-on experience as possible with the ins and outs of both military and civilian construction.

In addition to their construction experience, working with contractors in their real estate investments brought them to the realization that it wasn’t a lack of jobs that stops contractors from growing, but a lack of the right jobs.

After that, they made it their mission to help contractors free themselves from traditional marketing methods.

They founded Contractor Independence, a Digital Marketing agency based in Richmond, Virginia.

The agency has built its reputation on building PASSIVE lead generation assets that bring in high quality, exclusive leads for the jobs our clients want.

Our Goal is simple

To empower YOU to take control of your growth and gain independence from traditional marketing methods that hold your business hostage.
