Continuing the family tradition started by his grandfather in the 1930’s, Paul’s career began as a teenager working under the direction of his father. It was mandatory that Paul learned every aspect of the family business from the fabrication shop to executing projects in the field and eventually estimating. His lifelong involvement in the industry only saw a four-year absence while Paul Chavez served his country in the United States Army from 1989-1993.
Upon completion of his service, Paul continued to seek continuing education in construction management and business development by attending night classes at UC Berkeley and working during the day. His dedication and commitment to succeed would prove invaluable in 2012 when Paul took over as the President of Golden Bay Fence.
Under his leadership, Golden Bay Fence Plus Iron Works has experienced an unprecedented rate of growth within not only California, but Washington and Nevada as well. During his quality downtime, Paul enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, and supporting his favorite football team… The Philadelphia Eagles.
In August of 2019, Golden Bay Fence Plus Iron Works was awarded the contract for the new home of the Las Vegas Raiders Stadium. The project will include the installation of Iron Fencing, Steel Guard Railing, K12 Rated Bollards, Hydraulic Bollards, and Hydraulic Wedges.
