Trent Cotney

Trent Cotney has more than 20 years’ experience in the roofing industry. He is General Counsel for the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), Western States Roofing Contractors Association (WSRCA), Florida Roofing & Sheet Metal Contractors Association (FRSA), National Slate Association (NSA), Roofing Technology Think Tank (RT3) and several other roofing associations. He is the editor and primary author of the best-selling book OSHA Defense for the Construction Industry.

As an entrepreneur, he is currently owner, President and/or CEO of six different companies generating millions in revenue annually. His law firm has experienced explosive growth of more than 500% in the last three years and has a historic track record of growth over the last eight years.

Using both his legal acumen and in-depth knowledge of industry issues, he is able to understand the nuances of roofing including the development of SOPs, systems, and procedures to mitigate risk and ensure profitability. Cotney combines the business and legal expertise needed to get companies on the right track for sustainable growth. He won Top 50 Entrepreneurs by Business Leaders Magazine (2012) as well as a variety of industry awards including NRCA’s Gold Circle Award for service to the industry, WCRCA’s Joe Whatley lifetime achievement award, and FRSA’s President’s Award (2008).


John Kenney

John Kenney has over 45 years’ experience in the roofing industry. John started his career by working as a roofing apprentice at a family business in the Northeast. He also managed many successful projects in the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania markets before continuing his accomplishments in Florida. Because of his skill and hard work, he progressed from roofing laborer, to foreman, estimator, chief estimator, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer with his various companies. He has worked for multiple Top 100 Roofing Contractors and is intimately familiar with all aspects of roofing production, estimating, and operations. Prior to joining Cotney Consulting Group, John was responsible for the daily operations and performance of a large commercial roofing contractor. During his tenure, John ran business units associated with delivering great workmanship and unparalleled customer service while ensuring strong net profits for his company.

John also volunteers his time as a member of the Board of Directors for the West Coast Roofing Contractors Association. He has been involved with the organization for the last 20 years and currently serves as its President. One of John’s great joys is volunteering with many industry organizations along with mentoring and giving back to the community.
