Meet The Person Spare Time:

“When I’m not in Wichita, either doing chores around the house, out golfing or sneaking in a little pickleball with friends, I like to travel in Colorado and the Desert Southwest for outdoor fun.

Childhood:

“Growing up, we spent weekends and summers on the ECCO (Eby Construction Co. ) Ranch. Martin Eby Sr. gave all of his grandsons the opportunity to work on the ranch beginning at age 13, and I think this helped each of us develop a strong work ethic which has carried over to my career at Eby. I couldn’t wait until I turned 18 and was able to go to work with the company ”
