Schaumburg Woman a Finalist in Female Roofing Professional of the Year Contest

Agata Opoka, owner of Design & Development Group in Schaumburg, IL, is a finalist in Beacon Building Products’ inaugural Female Roofing Professional competition, a North American program showcasing inspirational women in the roofing industry.

Agata, aka Boss Lady, emigrated from Poland to the US in 2003, without friends or family, or even basic knowledge of English. Agata ended up in the construction industry where she worked for suppliers for several years before joining a general contractor. Agata noticed a decline in the quality of craftsmanship and customer service, and she wanted to change that. In 2016, Agata decided, against everyone’s advice, to start her own construction company that would provide excellent customer service and excellent craftsmanship in every aspect. Today, Agata is a business owner, wife and mother who proudly serves her customers while standing up for her employees and working side by side with her suppliers. Its business motto is, “We are what we do repeatedly. Excellence is not an act, but a habit.”

Beacon will announce the winner and runner-up winners in June. To learn more about the Female Roofing Professional competition and to read the Official Competition Rules, please visit
