James McMillen

Team Leader

James spent 3 years in construction and more than 10 years as a production manager prior to joining the Thrasher team and being promoted to Team Leader in 2018. Originally from Council Bluffs, IA, James now lives in Missouri Valley, IA with his wife and two daughters. He enjoys woodworking, watching sports – especially hockey, and going camping with his family.


Our crew leaders are responsible for overseeing each job to completion. Each leader takes responsibility for assembling appropriate tools and equipment, assigning tasks to installers, and moving the job toward completion to ensure efficiency and quality. They are also responsible for keeping the customer, up-to-date, and ensure satisfaction with each job.


At Thrasher, we work every day to deliver a wow experience and challenge the status quo. One way we do that is by walking alongside the best in the industry. In James’ words, “Thrasher is a great place, and I’m excited for my future here.” We’re thrilled to have James as a part of the Thrasher team as we work to redefine our industry.
