About Chad the Handyman
Chad – Owner and Operator
Everywhere he goes, people want to know about Chad, and most are surprised to see he is a real guy! Ever since Chad was little, he’s had a strong desire to be creative with his hands. That desire led him into the Construction field as a laborer at the age of 15. And by the age of 18, Chad owned and operated a remodeling and new construction company in Wisconsin. During this period of growth and success he focused on continuing his education as well.
Chad always says “what keeps me going everyday is the smile on the customers’ face when a job is complete. Thus when it comes down to it, I’m not satisfied until you’re satisfied.” When Chad isn’t working on his personal Honey-Do list, Chad enjoys hunting, fishing, making his own beer/cider, and root for his Green Bay Packers!
While the business was doing very well in Wisconsin, Chad had a strong desire to relocate to Southwest Florida. “I mainly wanted to expand my horizons and bring my skills and techniques to a new area.” Upon moving to Florida, Chad obtained employment with a well known multi-million dollar home builder. This high pressure sales job ultimately cemented the idea of wanting to serve his clients with quality service and at a great price.
Lyndee – Owner And Office Manager
Lyndee originally thought Chad had a nice “hobby” when he first started with Chad The Handyman in 2009. Turns out Chad’s dedication to the success of the company had Lyndee eating her words. She graduated from Michigan State University with a BS in Interior Design, and thus brings a creative element to projects. She enjoys helping clients select finishes or colors to bring the space together in a beautiful, functional, and cost effective way. On her own time she enjoys cooking, reading, and also going for walks with the kids.

Josh brings that mid-western work-ethic to the company that makes him a favorite among the clients. Not only is Josh handy with tools, but he is a whiz with Technology — from Apple products, to PCs, and tons of different software programs. When he has free time, he enjoys working on his car and spending time with friends and family. Make sure to ask for a few of his “Dad Jokes” when he comes to visit.

Customer Service Representative
Kristie moved to SWFL for the beautiful sunshine in 2016, leaving her 5 siblings and the rest of her family behind in Louisville, Kentucky. She is the proud mama of one very spoiled 55lb fur-baby, whom she adopted from the Naples Humane Society in 2017. Kristie is a great team player, and her cheerful disposition on the phone is why customers feel comfortable talking to her about their homework troubles. When she is not helping our clients with their home-work, she is cuddling with Brodie, working out, cooking, and spending time with friends.
This young man hails from South Carolina with a previous career in real estate. He was a Realtor that has always had a skill set that was just not being utilized. So Chad was so excited to bring him on board. Matt is very versatile in his repair skill-set, but if he runs across a task he is not familiar with, he is not afraid to educate himself and try something new. He is a team player and works well with all customer types. He has 4 kids and enjoys spending as much time with them as he can.
