Kevin Hackett – President
Kevin started his building career soon after graduating from Appalachian State University in 1997. Kevin moved to Asheville with his wife and spent four years working with a construction consulting firm. In 2002, he realized he wanted a more hands on, personally involved position within the construction industry, and moved to Charlotte to work as a Project Manager with a national home builder. Over the next four years, he completed more that 150 homes in the South Charlotte area.
After gaining strong experience running multiple projects, he returned to Asheville in 2006 and began working on large custom residential projects in the Cliffs Communities. In short time he realized there was a lack of high end custom homes being built with smaller budgets in mind, and Longview Builders was realized in early 2007. Kevin is a licensed general contractor and hands-on owner. He has a keen eye for design aesthetic and works hand in hand with architects and designers. A stickler for accuracy and efficiency, his straightforward approach brings projects in on time and on budget.
Kevin is a North Carolina native and has lived in the mountains of Western NC since 1993. His family of five is a part of the Asheville community in schools, sports, and local charities.
