OPERATIONS MANAGER

I joined RIVUS in 2016 because I could tell that Juan and Andres were quality guys who had a strong business model for success. This has proven to be the case ever since. I have always enjoyed new home design and construction.

PETE PICKERING

PETE PICKERING

OFFICE MANAGER

I began working with RIVUS, LLC when I retired from teaching high school math in 2015. It was an opportunity to supplement my income in a position I felt comfortable in. I am very active with church activities and enjoy the company of my family, so free time is very limited, but when I have the opportunity, I go on day trips on my motorcycle through the mountains of North Carolina.  I continue to follow my childhood team in the Premier League, the Magpies of Newcastle United Football Club.

I joined Rivus Construction in 2022. Having been a county building inspector, I’ve gotten to know both Juan and Dustin over the years. I’ve always had a healthy respect for the way Rivus operated and the final product that they produced. I’m excited to bring my 39 years of construction experience to Rivus. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, fishing and anything outdoors.
