The Solar Vision Team

heath_meador

Heath Meador 

President & founder

Heath started hanging window film in 1999 as a side job to pay for snowboarding.  Snowboarding is also what brought him to Colorado. As it turned out he had quite the knack for it (window film, and snowboarding too) which led him down the road to business ownership. Heath is also the master at bringing people out of retirement to work for Solar Vision Inc.

Brad Meador

Lead Installer 

In 2006, Brad made the long journey from Iowa to Colorado (a road trip across I-80 many Iowans are known to do and they usually don’t go back) to help Heath with doing installations. He was trained by Heath and has become a master installer himself. When not at work, Brad spends most of his time with his family, which includes his wife, 2 step daughters, and baby boy named Jude. We’re certain he doesn’t sleep. When not installing film you can find him near the office Keurig.

David Draughon

Residential Sales Manager

In 2009, Heath was able to convince his father in law David to come out of retirement and back to doing sales. David has almost 40 years of sales experience from the music industry, where he got to hang out at cool parties and brush shoulders with the Beach Boys, to the novelty business, and now window film! We knew he couldn’t stay retired for long.

Anita Meador

Internet Marketing Coordinator

Anita has a new position at Solar Vision. It’s her job to keep us visible online! As a retired school teacher she has been able to bring her graduate degree skills in English to our business. Along with keeping us visible online, she also corrects our grammar. It’s hard to get past a poorly written company email at Solar Vision Inc.

No we’ve not made our 8 year old join the business, but she does help sort receipts sometimes and we thought we should go ahead and have a spot ready for her. Side note…She wasn’t interested in dressing up as a Window Tint Installer for Career Day at school.

Shelley Meador

Manager of everything else

Shelley worked in the airline industry for almost 10 years before being solicited by Heath to help with the family business. She brings her experience in communications, sales, and customer service to Solar Vision Inc. and uses every last one of those skills on a daily basis.

 
Ben_Draughon

Ben Draughon

Installer

Ben has been installing window film part-time since 2004. Up until this fall, he worked as head bartender at a local Denver restaurant. Ben, finally, joined the team full-time and left the restaurant industry behind. Don’t worry though, we still help him keep up with his past work skills by insisting he mix us margaritas after work once in a while.

Lucinda Costello

Operations Coordinator

Lucinda is our day-to-day organizational, logistical, and operational manager. She keeps Solar Vision Inc. on-time and ensures we have all the 3M™ products ready and available to complete our customers’ jobs. Prior to her Solar Vision career, Lucinda worked in many facets of warehouse and office management and sales. Aside from working full-time at Solar Vision Inc., Lucinda’s 2 year old keeps her busy. Lucinda comes from many generations of people who make amazing Mexican food. We are constantly trying to get her to make some of her dishes to pair with Ben’s margaritas.

Yvette Frend

Commercial Estimator

Yvette is a chartered building professional with 10 years of experience working in the UK construction industry. She has a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and has worked as a project manager on a variety of projects for commercial and government clients. Yvette joined the Solar Vision Inc. team after relocating to Denver via Las Vegas and the UK. We’re glad to have her here not only for her experience, but because her British accent makes us sound sophisticated when she answers the phones. In her spare time, Yvette spends time at her kid’s school volunteering in the art room and weekends at the soccer field watching their games.

Tony Daigle

INSTALLER

Tony has been installing window film since 2010. Besides window tinting, he has spent over a decade in the hospitality industry. He is one of the politest people you will ever meet. Don’t let that fool you. He is from Maine and a Patriots’ fan, which is a hard pill for the rest of the Solar Vision team to swallow (Not the part from Maine). When not at work, you will find Tony playing drums with his band, The Larimer’s, or hanging out with his 12 year old daughter and boxer puppy.

josh_costello

Josh Costello

INSTALLER

Josh has been tinting windows with Solar Vision Inc. since 2010. As you might have been able to tell, Josh is married to Lucinda. Prior to joining Solar Vision Inc. Josh worked in the hospitality industry which included the ever popular Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs. Josh has a beautiful 12 year old daughter and 2 year old son. He’s also a very talented singer and guitar player. Perhaps Solar Vision should organize a band too!


“I wanted to say thank you for the timely and professional response to the glass and 3M film replacement at my home. The glass installer contacted us in advance for scheduling and completed the glass install professionally. The new film installation went very well, employees were courteous and I am pleased with the replacement. Everyone at Solar Vision did a great job of standing by the 3M product and its warranty. Installing the 3M window film has significantly reduced heat gain from our windows and improved our comfort while facilitating a reduction in our cooling cost. Thank again for an overall professional job.”
