Paul Powers’ career with Powers Roofing and Sheet Metal started in childhood when he worked part-time for the company his father started. He began working full-time in the 1970s after graduating from the University of Maine, Orono with a degree in mechanical engineering. As president, Paul oversees all operations of the family business; a job he took over when his father, Justin, retired in 1986. Paul was a large part of switching the roof assemblies from asphalt to single ply membrane systems in northern Maine. He continues to effectively run the business, staying on top of changing economic structures throughout northern Maine, while helping businesses plan and budget for their roofing needs. He is an active member of the community, including the Caribou Rotary Club, and has served on several local nonprofit boards. Paul is currently a member of the Katahdin Trust Co. Board of Directors. When Paul isn’t too busy working, he enjoys puttering around at the lake fixing and remodeling his camp.
