About Our Team
Barry Aho – Owner of Genesis Group, LLC
Any organization’s personality comes from the top, and Genesis Group is blessed to have Barry Aho as its founder and leader for 12 years. Barry is a true engineer at heart, and he has created many processes in the areas of design, build, sales and follow-up for Genesis Group–separating it from other landscaping companies.
What really gives Barry satisfaction is the unmatched quality of work all his customers enjoy. He loves being creative and seeing things come to fruition, taking a lot of pride in the end result and doing whatever it takes to make a satisfied customer. He also loves the diversity of people that he gets to work for, and many customers feel like family when the job is done. Barry says, “Customer satisfaction will always be the key to Genesis Group.”
Barry studied at Oregon State University, where he received a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering. He then spent 10 years as an engineer with Hewlett Packard (HP), during which time he had a great deal of hands-on learning in building houses outside his “real job”. He built his own home in Mountain Shadows, and continues to live on the west side of Colorado Springs with his wife, Kari. They have four awesome children.
The rest of the Genesis Group office team consists of:
