Chris Corcoran, Principal & Managing Director
Chris Corcoran is a native Washingtonian and has spent more than 20 years as the owner of a premier remodeling and home building company in the Metropolitan Area.
Most recently, Chris has partnered with Triumph Development’s James Fangmeyer and Steve Virostek to create Triumph Custom Homes in the DC area. Chris draws on his unique experience as the owner of Corcoran Builders to work with leading architects and designers, delivering the highest quality results and processes in the industry.
Just like Steve, Chris grew up in a home where his father was a builder. Many of the experiences that Chris had on projects with his dad helped to shape his love of building and is how he learned how projects are to be developed and managed. As most builders do, Chris started out by contracting to build decks, baths and basements throughout his high school and college days, paying his way through school.
Chris is a graduate of the University of Maryland with a degree in Marketing. He has been married to his bride for 17 years and is the proud father of twins. Outside work, youth sports and activities has been his focus for the past 15 years. His love of the outdoors is what fuels his passion for hiking, scuba diving and being on the move.
