HBA Board Spotlight: Troy Cuvelier, Integrated Smart Technologies

Home Builders Association

Troy Cuvelier has over 14 years of experience in the construction industry and is systems designer and president of Integrated Smart Technologies with offices in Kalamazoo and Jackson that serve all of Michigan.

He has been a member of the Home Builders Association since 2010 and is involved in many of the local association's committees and events. In addition to serving on the Board of Directors, he is on the Fast Built Committee, Home Expo Committee, and Membership Committee.

I feel honored to be part of an association that is full of wonderful people and businesses who volunteer incredible amounts of time and resources to make our HBA and community so great, Troy said.

As with this year's project, Troy has provided materials and labor as donations to Fast Built for the last two years, along with volunteering his time. Likewise, Integrated Smart Technologies will co-sponsor a lunch with Big D's BBQ, as they had for the Fast Built projects in 2011 and 2012.

Troy said there are a number of reasons to why he is sold on being a member of the HBA. The relationships I've made, the wonderful things learned from others that have lived and worked here for a long time, and staying current with what's going on with local building trends are just a few of the benefits I've received from being a member of this great association, Troy added.

Outside of his active role in the Home Builders Association, Troy's involvement in the community is just as impressive. He is an active member with the Chamber of Commerce as a Chamber Ambassador, is on the Strategic Planning Committee and Board for The Civic Theatre, and is a member of South West Michigan First's Council 100.

He also assists schools and churches with audio-video and control system needs by partnering them up with clients that are upgrading their systems and have equipment to donate.

Troy's HBA focus is to always promote continued growth by increasing membership with positive individuals and businesses; serve as an ambassador for members to help ensure they maximize the benefits of being part of the association; and support the HBA's reputation of trust, integrity, advocating for builders/trades, and camaraderie.

Integrated Smart Technologies has had a number of projects that gained recognition that Troy is proud of. We've been very fortunate to have had projects featured on national and local networks, such as MTV, HDNet, JTV (in Jackson), and WWMT/ Channel 3, as well as in magazines, such as Electronic House, CE Pro, Michigan Blue, and others, Troy said.

Troy is a graduate of Ferris State University and holds an MBA from Central Michigan University. He and his wife Amber have four children: Seth, 19; Emelie, 8; Charli, 7; and Mya, 3.
