In 1992 Rich Guthmann acquired his General Contractors license and began Guthmann Construction. Since then the business has evolved into a successful design-build firm renovating homes in neighborhoods such as Myers Park, Foxcroft, Dilworth, Montibello, Providence Country Club, and Piper Glen. On February 5, 2015, Rich Guthmann announced a gradual transfer of ownership of his firm to Production Manager Rick Haase and Architect Tony Gray. In 2018, Tony and Rick assumed leadership of the company. “We could not be more pleased and energized about the future of our company,” said Rich Guthmann. “Rick and Tony have been key to the excellent reputation and success that the company enjoys today.” Speaking of the longtime employees, he continued, “They bring matchless leadership and stability, and both have a deep sense of commitment to our distinctive way of doing business.” In 2018, Tony and Rick assumed leadership of the company as Rich transitioned to retirement.
