KEY PERSONNEL

Rafael Lapizco Sr., President and CEO

Rafael Lapizco boasts of thirty years in the commercial roofing industry, having begun his career as an Apprentice roofer in the Bay Area of California. Rafael was promoted quickly into leadership roles, and at one time, was overseeing 2,600 roofers in multiple states. Rafael continued to develop his remarkable career path over the next two decades, going on to enjoy senior leadership and executive roles in manufacturing and national contracting, before launching Pac Shield Roof Services, Inc. in 2017. Rafael is an active and engaged CEO and President, but is proud to be a roofer, first and foremost. Dedication to excellence is achieved through our quality control and rigorous standards for craftsmanship. While remaining focused on strategic growth and business planning for PAC, Rafael continues to lead and inspire the next generation of roofers and industry leaders. Notably, his youngest son Michael is working at PAC as an Apprentice Journeymen Roofer and his oldest son Rafael, Jr. was promoted in late 2021, to lead the Estimating and Sales team, with both Lapizco sons following their father’s relentlessly upward career trajectory in commercial roofing. Rafael’s passions in life beyond family and roofing, are motorcycles and the Raiders.
