Matt Emigh

Hello, I’m Matt Emigh, an Ohio native. My wife, Krysta and I moved to North Carolina in 2013, with our son and soon added a little girl to our family. I’ve been in the roofing industry for 8 years and come to Eastern Roof Technologies from a building materials distributor. I enjoy the lake as often as possible, and the mild winters NC has to offer. My weekends are often split between the baseball field and cheerleading competitions. I’m looking forward to serving my community in this new capacity, as the ERT Production Manager.
