Roger Bechtold

1972 was a busy year for Roger Bechtold. His first child was on its way, he and his wife had just built their first home, and his brother Len suggested they buy the Overhead Door distributor in St. Cloud. Roger decided to make a change from his career in excavating and try something new. Through the years, Roger held many positions at his garage door company, including garage door installer, service technician, commercial estimator, and eventually President. Under Roger’s leadership the company grew, and his success and leadership attracted many great people to the organization. In 1994, his hard work was recognized as he was named the St. Cloud Area Chamber Small Business Person of the Year. Roger sold the business to Gary in 2008, and these days you are likely to find him spending his days rebuilding an engine in his shop, or playing cards with friends.
