Charles E. Goodman III

Charlie has been living and breathing construction for over 45 years. From site work to construction, his work has touched every aspect of homebuilding in the Mad River Valley. He has also served on the local select board and is currently the Waitsfield road commissioner. He and his wife Liz moved to the valley from Pennsylvania when they were in their 20s, and raised three boys while building up Goodman Construction.

Charles E. Goodman IV

The oldest of the three Goodman brothers, Charlie built his first house when he was just 15. After graduating with distinction from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (with a degree in Civil Engineering), he went to work full time, while pulling down an MBA from Northeastern, and was among the top students in his class. After college, he worked for some large general contractors, building residential, commercial and educational buildings in Massachusetts, Florida and Virginia. But the mountains of Vermont were calling, and in 2012 he moved back to the Mad River Valley to take over the family business. He and his wife Susie (a nurse) live in Waitsfield with their twins, Charlie and Isla.

Chase Reagan

Born and raised in Moretown, Chase graduated from Harwood Union High School and UVM (with a degree in forestry and GIS) and has been with Goodman since 2016, working first in electrical and now in carpentry as well. When he's not stringing outlets or securing joists, he likes hiking, skiing, and flyfishing.

Jay Touchette
Jay Touchette

Jay was born and raised in Waterbury Center and graduated from Harwood Union High School. He has great depth in both his carpentry and masonry skills, thanks to having worked in construction since he was 12, initially in his father’s construction business. He joined Goodman in 2021, and when he’s not swinging a hammer he loves spending time in the outdoors – camping, hunting, fishing – with his young daughter and wife, Jennifer.

Avery Gaudette

Avery grew up in Waterbury and attended Harwood High School, then studied at Norwich University for a year before transferring to VTC, in order to pursue a degree in electrical engineering. He worked for six years as an apprentice while pursuing his Electrician’s License (which requires four years of on-the-job training and four years of schooling). He’s been working with the Goodman crew since 2013. When he’s not wiring outlets and lights, you’ll find him mountain biking or snowboarding, or, if it’s deer hunting season (all three of them), working to keep the state’s white tail deer population in check. He and his wife live in Moretown.
