Pam Shisler

Cruise Director

Pam has been with Owens since spring of 2008, but has been working with Owens as a customer for over 7 years!  As Cruise Director she makes sure the remodeling experience for our customers is a positive one.  “My favorite part of working for Owens is helping the customer explore all the different design options for their project, and creating that excitement about the finished product.  Remodeling is often stressful, but I like to help the customer find the fun in the process too!”

Chris Zweydorff

Lead Remodeler

Chris is a self-proclaimed carpentry junkie who is a craftsman on the job as well as at home.  He has been with Owens Construction for 5 years and has been doing commercial and residential remodeling for 20 years.  Chris’ real love is finish carpentry and it shows in all his projects.  “The great clients I get to work with every day really make it all worthwhile”.  When he is not at work, Chris likes being with his wife, playing with his kids, and coaching.

Betsy Owens


Betsy has been involved with Owens Construction since the beginning…and even before, if you count the early years (think college days) when she partnered with Bill doing odd jobs and home repairs. The partnership thrived, became a marriage in 1982, the same year Owens Construction was established. Now she is mostly behind the scenes, squinting at spreadsheets, pecking away at her keyboard, running numbers and people around! If you have made an inquiry, built some excitement with a project, or worked in some capacity with Owens, Betsy has you in her sights!

Betsy is an enthusiastic traveler and an avid reader. Audiobooks are a great way to combine the two! She is on the board of the Friends of the Library of Delaware County District Library. She and their chocolate lab Bruno can be found on any number of park paths for walks each day; they both love to be outdoors. Sons Fred, Max and Sam are the best in the world, just ask their mom! Combining family and business is our love and strength.

Bill Boylan

Lead Remodeler

Bill became interested in construction when his parents remodeled their 1880's Victorian home in the 1970's.  He was fascinated by the work being done and pitched in after school, carrying out buckets of old plaster. This experience lead him to study carpentry at Laurel Oaks Joint Vocational School in Wilmington, OH and since then, he has worked in residential remodeling and new home construction and commercial and bridge construction. His passions are for framing, "If the framing isn't right, nothing else will be right.  I build to last for centuries, not just decades"; and, custom trim work and cabinetry, "The trim is icing on the cake; it is what the homeowners see every day; it defines the craftsman and the home".

 Bill is an Air Force Veteran and father of a USMC veteran of the Iraq War. He is a certified paralegal, (Morse School of Business), journalist and owner of Boylan Publications, LLC, covering events such as the 9/11 Memorial Ceremony at Ground Zero in New York City and The Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz. He is also an editorial writer, published in the Record Herald, Middletown Press and Hartford Courant as well as in his own publications, The South Central Bulldog and The Middletown Insider. Bill has a strong sense of community.  He worked as an election official in Ohio and Connecticut.  He has spent many hours volunteering and raising funds for such things as The First Church of Christ Community Christmas Dinner, Purple Heart Homes, Connecticut Trees of Honor and is working on his third pony tail donation to Ohio-based "Wigs for Kids".
