Our Founder

Builder Partnerships was founded by Charles (Chuck) C. Shinn, Jr., of Shinn Consulting. For over 35 years, Chuck has provided management consulting services and educational seminars exclusively to the housing industry. Through Shinn Consulting, Chuck and his team work with builder clients to help them realize greater profits and efficiencies. Chuck has also spent 35 years working with manufacturers through NAHB's NCHI. He has been co-chair of the organization and also chaired the education committee.
