Lindsey’s Construction career began at the age of 18 when he started a residential and commercial maintenance company. The company was so successful with the commercial maintenance, he decided to form a new company and called it Van Horst.

In the beginning Lindsey was involved with running and working alongside crews all over the State of Connecticut and managing the day-to-day operation of his construction company. He has expanded the company and travels throughout the United States. Lindsey has branched into real estate owning and managing commercial properties in the Greater Hartford region.

He currently has his private fixed wing pilot’s license and he is currently pursuing his student rotor craft endorsement.
