Andrew Black

Partner

 
Andrew discovered his passion for building at the tender age of six, working for his father in his commercial painting business. Andrew grew up learning the values of hard work, transparent operations, and exceeding client expectations. After graduating from University of Western Sydney with a degree in business, he put his learnings into practice by opening Black General Contracting in 2002 and began building and remodeling homes for Toronto’s most discerning clients. Andrew spent the next thirteen years perfecting his practice, and appearing as an expert on programs like the Marilyn Dennis Show, The Property Brothers, and City Line, before joining the Alair family in late 2015. Andrew’s other great passion is his family of five, and grooming the next generation of Alairians.
