Brian is a third generation AROK owner. Starting out as an apprentice and laborer, his 25 years of first-hand experience in vertical construction come from having worked in every position at the company, which was led by his father, James Cooper, until his passing from cancer in 2007. “My grandfather and father inspired me, taught me that treating people with respect is mandatory, and that you can still do business with a handshake,” he says. Brian and his partners aggressively pursue projects that assist in the fight against cancer.
As an active member of the industry, Brian has been the president of the Arizona Chapter of the American Subcontractor Association, has been on the American Subcontractor Association national board of directors, was recognized as an Honorary Commander at Luke Air Force Base (LUF) from 2014 to 2016, and participates as a member of the Blue Blazer Squadron-Charlie Class at LUF. In his commitment to the community, Brian volunteers for St. Vincent De Paul and Homeward Bound Habitat for Humanity.
